When I first had my baby, I wanted to make sure she knew who I was. Although she had heard me talking to her mother for nine months while she grew inside her womb, my daughter had yet to recognize me. Of course, I was just a worried dad, but in those first few weeks, I was wary of having other people around her. I wanted her to like me. Was I jealous? Yes, I see that I was. And I’ve gotten over it and love when other people take some time with her now. But in the beginning, I was worried that she wouldn’t know me.
Other parents have to worry about something else. If they have pets, they need to make sure they introduce their cat or dog to the baby, so the animal welcomes the infant into the home. When done right, the animals fall in love with the newborn and protect them from harm. When done wrong, the infant could be in danger. Fortunately, most animals love babies.
The parents of 6-week-old Elsarose wanted their dog and cat to love their baby. The parents introduced their 8-month-old Labrador retriever, Nelda, and their kitten, Pebbles, to the baby just like all the books told them to do. It worked like magic. The dog and cat fell in love with the adorable Elsarose from the first day they met her.
But the parents never knew that the three would form a bond closer than most owner-pet relationships. And in the video below, you’ll see just how close Nelda and Pebbles are with little Elsarose.
While the baby was sleeping, her parents stepped out of the room for a minute. But when they returned to check on her, they found the baby had replaced them. She was with the dog and cat instead.
Mom and dad laughed as they saw the dog and cat sitting near Elsarose as if they were protecting her from something. It was truly a cute moment to catch on camera.
Rumble Viral got a hold of the video and shared it on YouTube. It quickly went viral with more than one million views at the time of this writing. The channel shared the following description about Elsarose and the two animals:
