There's a video making the rounds of a guy with severe Alzheimer's who's lost the ability to speak . . . except to the family DOGS.  In the video, it almost seems like he's back to normal when he's talking to one of them.  His daughter says she posted it to encourage people to spend more time with their parents while they still can.
