This footage is melting hearts all around the internet.

Internet users are going crazy over an adorable video of a young child comforting their scared dog during a thunderstorm.

The clip, which was originally shared on Reddit on November 20th, shows a little boy stroking a large dog who is hiding away in a laundry room.

The post has received over 20,000 upvotes, and is giving internet users hope for future generations of kids.

We're all in this together.

In the footage, what appears to be a Golden Retriever is trembling in the corner of a laundry room, obviously very scared by the storm and thunder that's taking place.

The toddler, who is only wearing a diaper, is petting the dog and trying to soothe him with words. The child then throws his arms around the pup to offer more comfort, in a display of true loyalty and friendship.

The caption of the post reads,

"This little guy comforting his buddy during a thunderstorm is the best thing you'll see today."

Dogs are kids' best friends.

Viewers of the video flooded to the comments to share their thoughts of how delightful and adorable they found the video

One Reddit user commented,

"Thunder buddies for life."

While another told a touching story from their childhood,

"When growing up, my mom had a dog that was terrified of thunder. After that, he would flee to my mom's bedroom whenever there is a thunderstorm, or fireworks, and I would go upstairs to comfort him. He was my best bud growing up and it was always so sad to see how scared he got of it."

While many found this display truly adorable, others were quick to point out that this video was also a little worrisome. One user commented,

"This is cute as hell, but maybe letting a baby sit face to face with a terrified dog is not the best plan..."
