A despondent dog, yearning for his mother, breaks down emotionally during a video call with her, revealing heartbreaking longing and sadness.

When I was a kid I had very acute separation anxiety. It happens, we all miss our parents while they’re away – and that includes our furchildren, too.

Our pets can get very sad and miserable when they’re separated from us. And any pet owner who’s been away from their furbabies for an extended period of time understands just how emotional they can get.

One woman had to go away on a 3-week work trip, leaving her pet Chow Chow behind at home. The dog was obviously missing her owner something awful, because the FaceTime session grew extremely emotional.

As the woman’s daughter stated, “My chow chow was chatting to my mom over FaceTime, telling her she loves her. She looked terribly sad, because my mom was away for 3 weeks for work.”

While contemporary technology is obviously no alternative, it can undoubtedly help bridge the gap until pets and their owners can once again be cuddled up together. And I’m sure any pet owner who is forced to travel away either on vacation or business has more than likely checked in via FaceTime with their babies at home.

Watch the beautiful video below:

After enduring endless days of despair, he was left feeling utterly heartbroken and terrified, haunted by his past.

After spending 270 days in the shelter, the dog’s mood lifted dramatically when someone finally took notice of him, leading him to bound with joy.
