The Lion King is a pretty emotional movie, especially for those young'uns. The same seemed to hold true for a pit bull pup named Luna, who was born only 4 months ago.
Josh Myers recently posted a video to Facebook of his dog Luna watching The Lion King. She stopped playing and stared at the TV to watch the scene where Mufasa dies.
During the scene, Luna begins whining and crying while Simba attempts to wake his father. She eventually settles down and can be seen watching the movie without further comment.
Myers captioned the video:
"'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."
Facebook users couldn't get enough of Luna.

Several people commented on Luna's newfound fame.
Some agreed that we don't deserve dogs.
Apparently, someone insisted that there must have been a human coaching Luna, so Josh posted another video from a different angle.
Luna was tired out by the whole experience.
Dogs have a surprising capacity for empathy, as anyone who has been ill or upset and had their dog comfort them will attest. We hope Luna got lots of treats and extra attention for being so adorable!
