As you already know, dogs and tiny babies are making great friends. Whenever a newborn is welcomed to the family, our fur-legged companions took advantage of the situation to show how gentle and protective they are. But do they manage to deal with a pair of twins or even triplets?! Well, as this adorable Golden-doodle shows it, things are just as easy, yet far more heartwarming!
Meet Sunny, a small Goldendoodle from Branford, Connecticut, who is the proud protector of three adorable newborn triplets. The dog is so smitten with the new members of the family that he pays them regular visits to make sure everything is in order.
When Lauren Barnes learned she’ll have triplets, she was more excited than ever.
However, she and her husband had no idea what their dog’s reaction would be. But, Sunny – a sweet Golden-doodle – surprised them both with his ‘maternal instincts.’ Since the moment he met his little human brothers, he turned into an overprotective nanny.
A new mom, Lauren Barnes, posted a clip on TikTok of Sunny checking on ‘his’ babies and quickly went viral. The adorable video that Barnes captioned as ‘cuteness overload’ is melting hearts all over the place.
In the video, all three triplets are snuggled in and resting on the couch. Everything seems in order but just to make sure, here comes Sunny to double-check.
The two-month-old babies seem to be waiting on their furry friend. Baby number three receives the final check with a sniff and a kiss. Yep, all seems ok here according to Sunny. ‘My job here is done,’ – Sunny the dog. It’s obvious this little morning check is a loving routine for the family.
Barnes has been sharing videos of her sweet triplets since their birth and Sunny has been front and center for most of them.
The stunning footage went absolutely viral online, with everyone falling in love with Sunny’s routine. It’s so heartwarming to watch dogs and children, spending time together, from such an early age.
“The only thing cuter than the family pup kissing the baby…is when there are three babies to love,” the video description reads.
