CHATTANOOGA, TN (Gray News) – Who hasn’t shed a tear or two during “The Lion King” scene where Mufasa falls to his death and his son Simba finds him?

Josh Myers was watching the film with Hannah Huddleston recently when his 4-month-old dog Luna developed an emotional connection to what she saw on screen.

“So, Hannah and I were watching the ‘Lion King’ while Luna played wildly with her toys. But right as Mufasa falls to his death, she stops and turns to the TV to watch,” Myers said on Facebook, where he posted a video.

“Anything you feel, I can feel too.” 🐾 So Hannah and I were watching the Lion King while Luna played wildly with her toys. But right as Mufasa falls to his death, she stops and turns to the TV to watch. To see her crying at the TV was the sweetest thing I think I’ve ever seen. She even lays down right after Simba lays with his dad....We don’t deserve dogs. 💚 4 months old and she’s already showing empathy. *VOLUME 🆙* To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email licensing@storyful.com storyful
