Baby adorably 'congratulated' by dog after her first crawl

August 13th, 2020

The days spent with your kids seem really long, but the years fly by before you know it. Your newborn will be babbling and recognizing faces just as you start to get used to them. And just when you wanted them to stay that way forever, then comes the crawling and talking.

The first year or so is, to a lot of people, the most precious one by far. That’s the year they leave mommy’s tummy, and the year you get to hold them and care for them after the long 9 months of checkups and stirs in the womb.

Here, a little girl no older than a few months is learning to crawl. This moment is a pretty big deal, because now they can move around on their own without a grown-up needing to carry them around.

It’s around this time that parents take the necessary baby precautions too, and have to go out their way to provide barriers and cribs to keep the little ones from moving too far or hurting themselves.

Though this little girl happens to have a babysitter, and perhaps the best kind too!

Her companion is everyone’s best friend. The one breed that has love, care, joy and gentleness in its very DNA. I’m of course talking about none other than the beloved Labrador Retriever.

This Lab is a good many times her size at this stage. It observes the baby as she confusingly, but confidently, getting the hang of crawling.

Given the dog’s age (it’s an adult), and some other easy-to-guess details, I think I can easily conclude that this Lab has probably been with her before she even left the womb. So watching the previously helpless human puppy learn how to travel on her own must be quite the sight for her.

“Just a little further. You’re almost there!”

The Labrador watches the baby like it’s her own. She keeps her watchful eye and nose on the girl, and appears to be cheering her on.

Crawling ever so more, the less than a year-old baby persists with all her might and the biggest of smiles on her face. She looks excited to make her way to the Labrador, and the dog likewise seems delighted to meet her on the end of the 3-foot distance between them.

“You made it!”

After some effort, the baby makes it to point B. Now, Labrador older sis plants a kiss on her to let her know how proud she is.

Today, she learns how to crawl. Before long, the dog will be running alongside her in any gardens or playgrounds they find when she’s older.

For now, she’ll need to watch and be patient while the small one learns the basics first.

Labrador Retrievers are, and have always been, the most popular choice of dog breed for basically everyone in the Western world. Their entire purpose in life is pretty much to just be best friends with every other living thing.

The Retriever’s original role was to assist duck hunters on their journeys. Their particularly soft mouths ideal for retrieving downed birds without crushing or squishing them.

The soft mouths are great for kisses and holding toys too.

They’ll sleep in your home, stick by your side, lick you whenever they want, and fetch anything you tell them to. “Retriever” is in their name, after all. It won’t be long before she enjoys her own games of fetch with her little girl.

You can witness the special moment below, with a single click of the “play” button.
