A short clip of an old man walking his dog has managed to simultaneously break and melt the internet's icy heart.
The clip shows the old man slowly walking along, walking stick in hand.
His dog, meanwhile, patiently walks by his side - a few tiny steps at a time.
The video, called 'An old man's best friend', was uploaded to Reddit by user 'namraka' earlier today. It has been viewed more than 700,000 times.
