1It's time to return the favor


If you ever had a dog, then you probably know that they are about as loyal as they come. But in this photo, you can see it was the time for us people to return a favor. What happened is that the dog cut up his paws in the middle of the hike with his owner, so the guy's friend drove all the way to the hiking trail and not only did he hiked for miles to find them, but he ended up carrying the dog the whole way out. God bless these people.

3A proud father


This is the photo of an immigrant holding a book in a bookstore where he taught himself English over 60 years ago. But that's not even the best part of the story, because that book isn't just any book, but the man's son's new novel. The bottom line? Never give up on your dreams.

4This photo gave me shivers


At first glance, this photo doesn't really say much. Without giving it too much thought, you can only see the picture of a cute dog and a random basket full of something. But if you take your time to read the note attached to a tree, then this photo will surely melt your heart. "In memory of Roxy," the note says. For she was a loyal dog, a friend really, who loved the park, who loved to chase and loved to play. And just like that, you realize that there are tennis balls in the basket and the dog owner wants people to take one, to play, chase and love, just like Roxy did. But the real question is, after seeing this, how could you not get all teary-eyed?
