Whether they are snuggling up on the couch next to us, or greeting us at the door after a long day, they are always there to make us feel better.

When a close bond is shared, a “type of heart-rhythm alignment can occur — two completely separate species sharing one healthy heart.” Watch the experiment in the video below:
