They say that music can soothe the save beast. While I'm sure that phrase was invented to describe the best way to handle lions, bears, and snakes on planes (I don't know, I'm not going to look it up), there is no beast more savage than I can think of than a baby.

Before you head off right into the comments section to argue this point with me, let's review some facts: Babies (and we were all babies, so maybe this is why we take it so personally) cry all day, cry all night, and then cry some more during times that don't even exist in our current day cycle. Also they poop and throw up a lot. And also we love them so, so, so much. (So much.)


One dad, who loves his baby very much, decided to put that whole "music soothing" thing to the test by putting the two together...literally. He stuck the baby on top of his guitar and just started playing. See if you can withstand the entire video without dissolving into an entire puddle as you watch that baby wiggle his hands and fall the hell asleep. Rock on little dude. (But quietly. And also hopefully only during daylight hours.)

True


Anyone who has spent any time around dogs knows that fireworks can be a jarring experience. The fact that they are in a shelter with the uncertainty of not having a home and being caged, combines for an understandably anxious situation. Santiago mentions to azcentral.com, that sometimes the pets can get so stressed out that they can jump out of windows or dig under fences, which isn't healthy for their psyche. The third annual Calm the Canines event is sponsored by Maricopa County Animal Care and Control with founder Santiago in Arizona. They comfort animals during these worrisome times.
