Little Girl Smooches Dog Before School
These two couldn't be any cuter together. My heart is literally melting!

Most people who have dogs in their household see those dogs as members of their family. Parents see those dogs as their children, while the children see the dog as a brother or sister.

This is why many of us show affection to our dogs in the same way we show affection to our family.

But let’s be honest, we definitely tend to love on our pets the most. We shower them with silly names, funny voices, hugs, and even kisses.

One little girl named Sierra loves her Newfoundland dog Samson and always makes sure to give him some love. She always makes sure to show him some affection before she leaves the house.

Their adorable interaction was caught on video which has now gone viral.

“Three kisses for Samson before Sierra is off to school,” the video’s caption reads. “Such an incredible bond between these two!”

The video starts with the little girl standing in front of her house with her lunch bag in hand.

“Say goodbye to him because you got to go to school,” Sierra’s mom can be heard telling her off camera.

“Oh bye,” Sierra says to Sampson affectionately.

That’s when Sierra leans in to give her pup a smooch. She leans in three times and each time the dog leans in to accept his kisses. The little girl was so happy that the pup instinctually knew how to accept her love.

“He went forward too!” the little girl exclaimed.

“Yeah he’s gonna miss you,” his mother told her.

The video went viral and was viewed more than 336,000 times.

“Dogs love you more than they love themselves they would defend and die for you a little kiss on the snout is the least you can do to show them how much they mean to you,” said one commenter on YouTube.

“Newfs are the most affectionate of dogs. A Newf that bonds to you will do everything in his power to keep you with him…whether you like it or not!” said another.

Some people argued whether it was sanitary for this little girl to be kissing her dog but experts say it’s not a big deal.

“Lots of dog moms and dads do. After all, his mouth is cleaner than yours, right? Nope. Think about it — what he eats, what he licks. Common sense tells you it’s a germfest,” PetMD says. “But the truth is, those bacteria aren’t big health risks for most people. So kissing your furry baby is OK, if it doesn’t gross you out. Just have a healthy awareness of what could be in your dog’s mouth, says Clark Fobian, DVM, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association.”
