She’s such a good mom.

There aren’t many things cuter than a litter of round, furry puppies. Although they don’t do much when they’re really young, they’re still fun to watch. For the most part, all you hear are little squeaks. Since they don’t walk yet, the puppies get around by scooting, which makes them even more adorable.

With babies, mama dogs become very protective. That doesn’t equate to being mean, just highly alert. Moms lovingly watch their pups, making sure they’re protected at all times. But what happens when mom decides to walk away for a little bit? Well, as one video shows, it creates an adorable scenario.

She has a dedicated place in the home

While waiting for their Golden Retriever to give birth, these owners set up a place in the living room. That way, she’d have one spot in the house for her and her new babies. Of course, she could come and go as she pleased. But the pups would stay in the enclosure for their own good.

The loner of the litter

All the puppies, minus one, seem perfectly content. They’re all curled up, sleeping the day away. But one puppy wants his mom. In a video posted online, which has been viewed more than 1.1 million times, you see this loner searching. Where did she go? All you hear is a lot of whimpering…almost panic-like.

She’s watching

Obviously, the puppies don’t see very well at this point. But hearing the loner’s cries, the mama Golden Retriever makes her way over to the enclosed area. Slowly and quietly, she stands at the entrance…just watching. She wants to make sure this isn’t an emergency.

Coming in for a closer look

With her puppy still crying, she makes her way over to him. Then like a sweet and responsible mother, she bends down to smell him. She carefully inspects the little fellow from head to tail. But instead of lying down next to him, she goes over to one of the two groups of sleeping puppies to lie down.

Now, where did she go?

This puppy knows his mom was just there but now she’s gone again. So, he instinctively turns around and begins searching for her. We’re presuming from her scent he begins to waddle closer to his mom. She lies there, waiting patiently.

“I’m getting dizzy”

But then, the puppy turns back around. After stumbling, he goes in circles. At this point, his cries become much louder. His mom’s not liking that one bit. So, she stands up, again making her way toward the loner pup. Now realizing he needs her, she lies down close to him.

Finally

The puppy quickly settles in for a meal. But if he thought he was going to have a little bit of alone time with Mom, he was mistaken. All that crying woke the other puppies. Now sensing it was time to eat, a few others saunter over to Mom as well. She’s such a good girl, so loving and gentle.
