Dogs and babies are a cute combination for many reasons. For one, both are simply adorable! For another reason, they can often comfort each other and provide companionship.

A Labrador named Peanut showed the perfect example of this when he took care of his little brother.

Sweet Peanut saw his brother crying and jumped right into action to help him. He seemed to be saying, “Don’t worry, Mom, I’ve got this under control.”

When our babies are fussy, sometimes it’s a good idea to call in the family dog for assistance.

This gentle lab, whose name is Peanut, was exactly what a crying baby needed for comfort.

Lucky for us, Mom caught Peanut’s adorable actions on camera for us to look at, and we can’t help but admire Peanut’s expertise with the tiny infant.

When he saw the distressed baby, Peanut stepped in to save the day.

His nuzzles and licks were an instant relief to the baby’s discomfort, so much so that the baby couldn’t get enough! There’s something about a kind, loving dog that is soothing to anyone, even to a newborn baby.

This heartwarming moment is probably the beginning of many between Peanut and his baby friend, and the two are sure to share a wonderful friendship in the future.

The video of the pair quickly went viral, garnering millions of views on YouTube and Rumble.

Many people took to the comments section of the video to share their reactions to the sweet pair. One person wrote:

“Here you go, human puppy, my licks for you.”

Another YouTube user adorably said:

“Dogs…’s best friend since birth”

It’s now been a few years since this video first made waves online. Peanut’s mom stared an Instagram page called peanuthelab where she shares lots of cute videos of Peanut and his brother, Possum.

The pair have also been joined by another lab named Dolly. The three of them all love playing together.

It’s amazing to see how much Peanut and Possum have both grown since their initial viral video. It’s clear that Peanut is going to be a wonderful protector and companion for Possum as he grows up.

This sweet video is sure to bring a smile to your face, and it will also make you want to give your furry friend a big hug.
