Here's something that will lift your spirits away from the perpetual sense of gloom and doom hovering over our world.
A video demonstrating the bond between a man and his best friend is the key component for a dose of some much needed sunshine in our lives.
This golden retriever in the video appeared to be intimidated by the grooved metal steps ascending up to who knows where, and it wasn't about to follow its owner on all four paws.
@Attractivepup If I werw a dog, I wouldn't want to go on an #escalator either!— Rosie Delacruz (@Rosie Delacruz)1532841659.0
The dog hunkered down and showed resistance in advancing forth, and the owner wasn't about to force it into doing anything against its will.
So what's a guy to do? He picked up his best friend and carried him up to the second floor and went on with their day at the mall.
Some commented that the dog's intuition about avoiding the strange contraption was spot on. The truth is, escalators are considered unsafe for animals and there are usually signs indicating as such.

Inside Edition did a report on dogs being intuitive to the possible dangers of riding an escalator.
They seem instinctively to know that danger is lurking, and they're right. Dogs and escalators are not a good mix.
It doesn't matter how big the dog is, carrying them is the only safe way to go.
Most were just enamored of the valiant master caring for his furry friend.

Maybe the dog feigned fear as an excuse to find his way into the owner's arms.
@Rossmac212 Nothing to do with the escalator - he wants to be carried!— Andrea Liu (@Andrea Liu)1532601833.0
@Rossmac212 But he has the sweetest of friends.— iretos (@iretos)1532707657.0
@Rossmac212 I think the owner would of picked him up anyways. Ross, I would pick him up everyday if he was my dog!— Myo Lee (@Myo Lee)1532634640.0
Sometimes, an elevator will do.
