Tēnā koutou katoa - Greetings to you allA cute cuddly guinea-pig.
I’m going to be very noncommittal (that’s a change! says you).

Just take a moment or two to check out the video I was sent recently from my daughter’s Facebook account.

Reflect on how you felt when you watched the video.

You might like to watch it again.

What’s the first thing you felt when the puppy responded?
  • Was it an endearing feeling?
  • Was it soppy cuteness?
  • Was it an interest in Pavlovian reaction?
  • Was it concern for the puppy?
I’d like to learn about your response to this video. Please share how you felt by putting a comment at the end of this post.

I felt sadness for the puppy, it sounded sad like it was calling out for it's Mum.

Am interested at what other people think. We've been talking in class recently about images and sounds to evoke emotion in our digital stories.

Interesting you mentioned sadness. I too felt this.

I watched my children's reactions and was moved to observe how they 'squirmed'. Whatever it was they felt, it was not what I'd describe as an every-day emotion.

They appeared to display a mix of amusement, frustration, and almost painful lament for the puppy, without being able to put how they felt into words with any ease.

Yep. It would be good to get a range of opinion on this.

@Everyone- What do others think?
