It's easy to get caught up in the rat race. Days spent working your tail off at work, then zipping kids here and there to sports and dancing. Sometimes, it feels like those busy days are followed only by making lunches and checking homework.

If you're in the middle of this parenthood game, you sometimes need a little pick me up.

Let me introduce you to Cole Coelho. He's a year and a half old and lives in Dartmouth with his dad, Justin, his mom, Randi, and his black lab, Gracie. Cole enjoys playing with his dog.  He enjoys it so much that he'll often let out those belly laughs that only babies can produce. Honestly, is there a better sound in the whole world? Nothing can bring peace to a parent's soul like the sound of happiness coming from their children. It's such a strong instinct that even the sounds of other people's happy kids will make parents happy.

I challenge you: if you are having a bad day, if you are under stress, if you hate your boss at work, take 90 seconds and watch this adorable baby playing with his dog. In a world where toxic politics seem to be ripping this country apart at the seams, we still have dogs and babies. Dogs and babies might not be able to save the world, but then again, maybe they can.

Watch this baby playing with his dog, and if you like it, share it. It just might put a smile on someone else's face just when they need it the most.
