Before you click play, you might need some tissues first.

In probably the saddest and most heart crushing moment of the year, the video below shows three minutes of an adult dog painstakingly burying a dead puppy in Iraq. Haunting wind hits the camera mic as the dog tenderly nudges sand over the puppy. The only other sounds you can hear (besides the steady falling of your tears) are Iraqi men in the background, who speak in indiscernible Arabic.

By the time the dog finishes, you're left emotionless and bitter and in total belief that dogs are in fact better people than actual people.

With its tail dangling low and its head facing the ground, the dog walks away from the burial site in evident grief, while a man can be heard saying the words we probably were all thinking: "Thank you very much."
