After a pretty intense birth, this mama dog was completely exhausted. As her little puppies all squiggle and squeal for some milk, the only thing this poor mom can do is lie on her side and hope to fall asleep. Though her puppies all came out healthy, she can barely move.
But just when you’d start feeling sorry for this new mom, it’s worth waiting to see what Dad does! Softly and with obvious affection for his wife, he slowly licks at her face to help her feel more comfortable. As the babies all get something to eat, Mom and Dad get to share this beautiful and peaceful moment with each other.
This father clearly loves Mom, and will probably do anything to make sure she and his brand-new babies stay absolutely and completely safe. It really doesn’t get much more perfect than this.
