Disney does make the most romantic and blockbuster stories of all time with their movies almost always tugging at everybody’s heartstrings. And while the heartbreaking death of Tadashi Hamada of Big Hero 6 left us tearing up, there is still nothing similar to the sadness we felt when Mufasa of The Lion King died in that chaotic wildebeest stampede.
This adorable pit bull clearly felt the same. Josh Myers, the pit bull’s owner, was casually enjoying this Disney classic with his significant other as Luna, the four-month-old pooch, was playing with her toys in the same room. Everything was quite normal not until they got to the scene where Mufasa fell to his death.
That moment triggered Luna to watch. And to the couple’s surprise, Luna was whining and whimpering as she watched poor little Simba crying on the TV. It was as if she felt the same pain the tiny lion cub was feeling. When Simba was trying to wake his dad, Luna got excited, somehow hoping that Mufasa was still alive.
But alas, Mufasa didn’t get up, and so Luna cried again as Simba cried out for help. She even laid down when Simba went to lay down beside his dad. While the pooch was whining and feeling all sad at Mufasa’s death, her dad was giggling at the back, clearly amused by her reaction.
To calm her from the rather heart-wrenching scene, Josh showered her with hugs and kisses before she went to play with her toys again. Luna’s video immediately reached hundreds of people on Facebook, all agreeing that the same scene never fails to make them tear up as well. This just shows how dogs are much more alike to humans than what we expect.
Watch her heartbreaking reaction here.
“Anything you feel, I can feel too.” 🐾So Hannah and I were watching the Lion King while Luna played wildly with her toys. But right as Mufasa falls to his death, she stops and turns to the TV to watch. To see her crying at the TV was the sweetest thing I think I’ve ever seen. She even lays down right after Simba lays with his dad….We don’t deserve dogs. 💚 4 months old and she’s already showing empathy. I can’t wait to see how she reacts to the new live action Lion King!*VOLUME 🆙*Follow Luna on Instagram! @luna_o_thepitbullFor licensing or usage, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org ViralHog
