The video above went viral when posted on Dr. Mathis’ Facebook page.  Over 7 million people looked at and shared this simple account of kindness.  There is nothing fancy going on here.  No tricks.  No huge ah-ha moments.  What is seen is a gentle regard for an animal who has had a very tough time and needs patience, thoughtfulness, and tenderness.  Dr. Mathis simply sits and eats his own breakfast, also out of a dog dish, sips his coffee, and intermittently pats Graycie gently, letting her know he is there, is what is so captivating.  That a couple of other animals stroll by to offer a hello is a further testament to how this veterinarian works with the animals in which he is engaged.  There is genuine care being demonstrated here on so many levels.

Fast forward to a follow-up video posted at the beginning of March.  It shares Graycie’s story and the power of the Internet in helping to change this sweet little dog’s world.  WARNING: At the start of the video is a reference to some photos from her surgery from marker 1:45-1:58.

Every day beautiful animals like Graycie are looking for someone to take them to a forever home.  Please consider adoption. What we get in return goes far beyond what many of us imagine and the real, positive, love-filled impact they can make on our lives.
