Any parent can attest to the power of a good bedtime story, it’s soothing for the child and a lovely bonding experience for the parent. When it comes to dogs though, we’re a little sceptical about its effectiveness.

Dalton the Dragon
This adorable video shared by SunnyDreams, a family-run breeder of Golden Retrievers, shows a huge litter of puppies settling down to have a bedtime story read to them by none other than Dalton the Storytelling Dragon.
The video begins mid-story and shows the four-week-old pups curiously inspecting the dragon. One pup in the centre of the frame appears to already be transfixed though and doesn’t take her eyes off the storyteller throughout.
A very comfy nap
As the other pups satisfy their curiosity they slowly begin to get comfortable and snuggle together to ready themselves for a wonderfully comfy nap.
Mission accomplished Dalton!
A YouTube hit
Unsurprisingly, the very cute Golden Retriever video has become something of an internet sensation and already has over 213,000 views on YouTube.
Well, with all the bad news stories going on in the world, people can be forgiven for craving some puppy-based escape! What we’d give to join that storytime!
