If you live in a faithful household, your parents will always remind you to say grace before eating. But apparently, it’s not just us humans who can do it — dogs can pray, too! Obviously, they don’t understand the concept of praying. But somehow, their version of praying teaches them patience and the rewards of delayed gratification.
In India, a viral video showed dogs learning how to pray before meals. Here’s the adorable pooches’ story.
The praying pooches
The video, which had been shared on Twitter by a netizen named Vaishali Mathur, showed a woman teaching her pets how to pray. The video started by showing the woman serving the pups their dinner. But before the dogs could feast on their tasty dish, they had to wait for their owner to finish her prayer. In a way, it seemed that the dogs were trying to look solemn and contemplative.
After the woman was done with her prayer, she then gestured the pups to eat their dinner. The dogs immediately went towards their bowls to enjoy their meals.
Vaishali said in the video’s caption that she thought her friend’s dogs were good boys. And they were, indeed!
What did the netizens say?
At present, the adorable clip has more than 50K views, 3.6K likes, and several retweets. A lot of Twitter users shared their nice sentiments about the video.
One user admired the woman’s nurturing capacity, tender love, and care, qualities that were thought to tame animals. Another user put it simply by saying that the clip was so cute. A third commenter commended the pups for being well-trained and patient.
Someone admired the discipline instilled in the dogs, as they only went towards the bowl after their humans told them so. A fifth netizen said that she loved the bond and respect between humans and animals. He further stressed that animals had feelings and that they deserved to be treated gently.
