There’s a scene in “The Shawshank Redemption” where Andy Dufresne, having successfully tunneled out of Shawshank State Prison, comes out of a filthy 500 yard-long tunnel and splashes into a giant puddle during a torrential downpour. He rips both of his prison issued shirts off, raises his arms skyward and is transfixed — possibly transformed — by the feeling of the rain falling on his face. This dog knows how he feels.
In a video posted to YouTube yesterday by Brandon Rochelle, Jack, a Golden Retriever puppy, experiences rain for the first time and he’s just as delighted by the sensation. He opens his mouth, he tries to eat the droplets, he wants to understand how this water is falling STRAIGHT FROM THE SKY, YOU GUYS?! His questions are never answered — at least not during this 24 second clip. If his confusion results in more videos as cute as this one, we sort of hope he never figures that whole rain thing out.
