This is a touching scene between Hernán, a toddler with Down Syndrome, and a gentle Labrador Retriever named Himalaya. Hernán lives in Buenos Aires. His mom, Ana, has commented that because of his Down's Syndrome, her son shies away from physical contact. But Himalaya lays down sweetly in front of the boy several times almost to introduce herself and have the boy get familiar with her, as if to say, "I am your friend and will always be here for you".
