Pets intuitively know when something's afoot. They can sense a whole range of a human's emotions, from an owner's sadness and happiness to nervousness.
They also tend to form a tight bond with new babies brought into their family, even becoming a tad bit overprotective of their new human sibling. Penelope the precious pup is no different, except that her actions toward her new baby have gone viral.
That's because Penelope has shown an incredible amount of love and affection for a new baby who hasn't arrived yet. Penelope's baby sister is still growing in her mom's tummy, but it doesn't matter to Penelope.
This cutie pie cannot snuggle up close enough to her baby sister. She must patiently wait just a few more weeks until the baby arrives in order to nuzzle her new baby.
But until then, Penelope will continue to shower her baby sister with love the only way she knows how. In the video below, mom Juliana is 34 weeks pregnant and lounging on the couch.
Juliana covers up her belly with her hands, but Penelope will have none of that. She wants to get as close to her baby as she can.
Penelope climbs up onto the couch and gently swats at her mom's hands, trying to convince her to move her hands away. That's because Penelope wants full access to her mom's belly and her baby.
Juliana told The Dodo that Penelope's actions were so endearing. She couldn't believe it!
"It's the first time she's done this. It was very emotional."
Even though Penelope doesn't fully grasp that there's a baby in her mom's tummy, she knows that something is up. It's so cute!
"We set up the little nursery room and she goes in and sits under the crib. She's always been very needy and affectionate, but toward me, it was increased a lot."
Juliana shared video of Penelope's charming canine ways with the world and it's since gone viral. Juliana believes wholeheartedly that Penelope will be a perfect big sister to the new baby.
Watch how absolutely adorable Penelope is toward her baby and mom in the video below. How sweet!
