Toddler melts hearts giving goodnight kisses to dog nursing her pups
I'm glad a camera was rolling - it's the most precious thing I've seen all day. ❤️

There’s just way too much “awww” in this one. Who can resist toddlers and dogs?

A precious child was caught on camera giving a dog, who was nursing her pups, lots of love with kisses and soft petting. And it’s not easy approaching a nursing mom.

They’ll usually snarl or turn away from you.

But somehow, this dog knew that the little girl was harmless and just wanted to give her some love. After all, it’s exhausting to give birth to that many pups.

The little girl is there to soothe and comfort the dog who does love the affection she’s getting.

And to think toddlers don’t have the physical or emotional level of development to understand what’s appropriate behavior around a dog and what isn’t.

Parents find it tricky enough to handle a growing child but add a dog into that mix and more often than not, it’s chaotic.

Or is it?

See, while toddlers are unpredictable and also uncoordinated, dogs do have the potential to hurt a child, even unintentionally. Especially one that is nursing her young.

But this child and the family dog are defying the odds.

Kudos to the girl’s parents for setting up the camera too!

This viewer nailed it by saying,

“I think praise for the parents here is more than warranted. Just look at the effort put in to preparing the room for the dog to have her pups and feel safe and secure in her home. It’s obvious in many ways she is a huge part of their family. She still has access to be with all the humans & vice versa. The little girl is not only able to see her dog and puppies, but is learning a lot from from all the work of tracing her parents have put into this family. Well done parents.”

The video may be in black and white but you can tell by the dog’s face that she’s perfectly fine with the child stroking her head.

And what a sweet kiss too!

The little girl even reaches out to pet a puppy, and not surprisingly, the dog lets her touch the pup.

Her mom and dad really did a good job of establishing a relationship between these two. And in a few more years, they’ll be the best of friends too.

Here’s another viewer with a great observation,

“This video is so pure, it’s obvious that there’s lots of love between mama dog and her family. Clean, safe space for her and her puppies, a space heater on the side to ensure they stay warm when she’s not in the room with them, and a lovely child who was clearly taught that the dog is family.”

Dogs ARE family.

The love and the trust between these two are just so pure and so beautiful to witness. It’s a really positive and healthy home so the pups are in good hands and paws too!
