There’s nothing like seeing parents with their newborns. It’s such a fascinating experience watching as two people who created something so beautiful, rejoice in their new, shared responsibility.
Most of the time we assign those feelings only to humans. But animals feel the joy and excitement for their newborns just as humans do.
It’s the reason why mothers care and provide for their newborns just like humans. The emotional connection is there and they too feel it is their responsibility to care for their young. Fathers also protect their newborns as well.
Regardless of the role each of them plays, they both take on the responsibility of being a protector and provider.
A video of two golden retrievers, who have just become parents, has captured the hearts of many. The video has over 11 million views and over 150,000 likes. Your heart will melt watching the two with their litter.
The pups are very new to the world. They can’t open their eyes or use their legs quite yet. They’re so adorable as they utilize what little motor skills they have to move about.
The proud mama and papa lay amongst each other looking lovingly at the new pups as they huddle together. There are seven of them. Each wears a different color collar for the owners to identify them. It’s quite easy to see the personalities coming out of a couple of them already.
For example, at the beginning of the video, the puppy with the green collar looks to be making their way away from the huddled group. While the one on the other end, in a pink collar, attempts to get as inside the group as they can.
The parents watch the babies carefully as they snuggle as well as the one that insists on going in the opposite direction. At one point, the mom even smiles before the scene fades.
The mom is asleep now as dad stays up to watch the little ones. He must have known that giving birth has taken its toll on her. He gently places his head on hers as she sleeps. It’s as if he’s comforting her as she rests.
He’s a keeper!
Before long, the pups are asleep. Well, at least one of them is. And boy, does this little one know how to rest! This little pup rests just under one of their parent’s neck as they both get some much-needed shut eye. It’s possibly the cutest thing you’ll see for some time!
As the puppy sleeps, it jumps in their dream. Their tongue is out which is a sure-fire sign that it’s getting some of the best sleep in its young life!
The video fades and reveals both parents watching their newborns again. The mom sticks her tongue out as if to smile. She is so proud of the little ones, she can hardly contain it.
In the end, mom finally decides to go to sleep. The pups have a feeding while both she and the dad sleep soundly. Truly, it is a beautiful video.
Many of the viewers believe so too:
“This dog couple seems like they are more faithful and loving than A human couple lol.”
“This is literally all tired parents with their newborns it’s so CUTE”
“Damn man those pups have a more loyal dad than i ever had”
We wish this family the best! We would love to see an updated video of their progress!
