This dog's story is not a new one. Many dogs feel the need to cover new babies up, so that part's nothing new. But this yellow lab takes her task to the extreme, nosing the newborn over and over until at last the baby squeaks.
The infant lies on the couch on a blanket wearing nothing but a diaper. The pup seems to think, since the baby doesn't have fur to keep him warm, that maybe he needs to be covered up.
So without any fanfare, the dog simply puts the blanket to rights, covering the sleeping baby so he won't get cold.
With a flip of her nose, the fur buddy tosses the blanket up and covers those precious little feet.
Once she's got the baby covered, the lab starts bumping the baby with her nose. Each time, the baby kind of wobbles, but at first he doesn't seem to notice.
One last flick of the blanket to be sure the infant is completely covered, and a few more bumps with her nose, and the dog is satisfied.
The infant squeaks, but doggie seems to realize that her job is done. Stretching to relieve all the kinks from the strenuous task of covering her baby charge, and the lab considers herself off duty. I guess mom has to take over now!
