Late-stage Alzheimer's disease can be a cruel and brutal thing, as the loss of vocabulary gives way to the inability to speak at all. That's the situation Lisa Abeyta's father finds himself in most days, but there's one thing that seems to help: the family dog.

Abeyta caught this video of her dad getting his speech back for a rare moment, to tell the dog, "Why don't I take care? I'll take you, and you take me."

The internet today is one big conspiracy to make us cry over dads. It's working.
