The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation just won the best commercial of the year award for a 35-second video and it’s easy to understand why.
A wounded soldier is seen lying on the ground as a horrific firefight is erupting all around him. As he looks around he stops to see a young girl, clearly dead, lying not far from him. As he begins to panic, another soldier runs to him and begins to hold him. The commercial quickly cuts to the soldier being awakened in his own bed at home by his veteran dog.
A narrator can be heard saying, ““We train dogs to guide people with a trauma out of a nightmare. Because we not only help people who cannot see, but also those who have seen too much.”
