We hope you can swim – because soon you’ll be sitting in a pool of your own tears.

Kleenex’s new ad featuring a man and his dog is designed to make you cry like a baby, and we think you’ll agree that they’ve succeeded.

Chance and his owner Mike Williams have a lot in common, and the first thing is obvious: they both get around in wheelchairs.

When the dog – who was left for dead by the side of a road after being hit by a car – became available through San Antonio Pets Alive!, Williams and his wife knew that they had to take a chance on Chance.

“I deal with the same struggles that he deals with,” says Williams. “I knew that we could overcome those obstacles together.”
