The video is like one of those tear-jerker Budweiser Super Bowl ads with animals, but this one happens to be real. It's about a goat named Mr. G who got rescued from squalor and transported to the Animal Place sanctuary in Vacaville, California, reports Fox. Problem was, rescuers didn't realize how attached Mr. G was to a burro named Jellybean. Mr. G. didn't eat for six days and moped about in what seemed to be a depressive funk—until rescuers reunited him with Jellybean. "You might want to grab a tissue," advises Katie Dowd at the San Francisco Chronicle. "Mr. G’s reaction is so sweet and so incredibly human." (More uplifting news stories.)
