You’ve heard “I Can Only Imagine” thousands of times. I know I have. I grew up on the song and sometimes catch myself humming it. It is deeply ingrained in me.
There are thousands of covers and even a movie based on the writing song. But you’ve never seen a video quite like this one.
Hollywood, Alabama Police Chief Jason Hepler lip-synced the dog along with his beloved K9 Fox.
The two have such natural chemistry. This will definitely pull at your heartstrings.
Enjoy the and the music as Hepler and his loyal partner Fox perform to “I Can Only Imagine”:
The Magic of Dogs
Dogs are mans’ best friend. The loyalty and love a dog has for people are unmatched in any other animal. It breaks my heart when I see a skittish and angry dog. That pup wasn’t born like that but was made that way by a cruel or disinterested owner.
My precious girl Petra came from several abusive homes and is still skittish around strangers. She is a goofball and klutz but she’s MY goofball and klutz.
Every time I come home to her she is so excited to see me. She misses me so much, and I miss her too! This is the video of us from when I had to isolate due to COVID for three weeks.
I grew up afraid of dogs. A german shepherd who never got out of his backyard escaped and attacked me when I was 5. For about twenty years following, dogs scared me and I would frequently cross the street when they were walking.
It took me years to understand that not all dogs are bad. There are no bad dogs, only bad honors. I soon met plenty of beautiful pooches who showed me canines are capable of unlimited love and affection.
Petra, as you can see, is a white german shepherd mix. My parents still can’t believe how much of a “dog person” I have became.
Dogs do so much for us
Dogs are our companions and partners in life. They do everything for us.
They are our protectors
Pretty sure the dog was protecting its owner and territory ??? https://t.co/uWzD6tjBzt
