I agree with the parents pushing their luck. Most dogs if they are sound asleep and are woken up abruptly will have some kind of reaction just like humans. It may be a rude awaking with a bit to defend themselves. In this cases the baby is touching the dog so the dog should not be totally sound asleep. But it just makes sense to be on the cautious side because the family pet will be the one that gets the raw end of the stick and even death if the child is hurt. Put yourself in the pups shoes and see how would you like to be poked and pulled on while you are trying to sleep. Good Dog! Cute Baby! I just hope nothing bad happens in the future

The dog is cute. The baby is really cute. The situation is rather dangerous. Not cute at all.

Its cute but let the dog sleep in peace. He can play when he wakes up.

If you know your dog, and the dog has been there from day one with the baby, under supervision, as this is, it should be fine. It all depends on what kind of dog, not the breed, but the personality. We had dogs and cats from the beginning with both of the boys, then when they were teens I had a dog and several cats. My one daughter-in-law volunteers at their local animal shelter and also fosters dogs and cats, adding to their own brood of two cats and two dogs...


I just wish people would stop thinking how "cute" this is. Someday that child is going to hit, pinch, sit on or pull ears at a time when that dog is just not in the mood...or has taken just about enough....and is going to react! Next thing you know, he or she is going to the pound to be put down...I've seen it happen too many times. How would the parents feel if the dog poked and prodded their toddler? Would they stand for that?
Parents need to be more responsible and teach their children to respect animals...and know that they are not toys. Please stop letting your children sit on, poke or pull on your dog or cat...or any animal for that matter.

Sweet but even our doggies need their rest and even our sweet babies keep our animals awake at that early age....we just need to be mindful of that.

That is a good natured dog, we had one when our sons were growing up and the dog protected our sons at times. Whats the cage for, dogs that big and that sweet dont need a cage ever, how cruel. Adorable video.
