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.
A video of Sunny checking on ‘his babies’ was posted on TikTok by Lauren Barnes, the triplets’ new parent, and it quickly went viral.
The endearing video, which Barnes has nicknamed “cuteness overload,” is melting hearts all over the internet.
Since their birth, Barnes has been releasing videos of her gorgeous triplets, and Sunny has been in the bulk of them.
In the video, all three triplets are curled up and relaxing on the couch when Sunny arrives to double-check everything is in order.
The two-month-old babies are already looking forward, in anticipation of their canine friend arriving. This quick morning check has already become a daily tradition.
Sunny nuzzles one of the triplets while standing on a nearby footstool. To gain a better view of the little people, he extends his body on the couch.
He only stays long enough to make sure baby number one is happy and comfortable.
Then it’s time to see how baby number two is doing. Sunny repositions his weight and extends his body. The infant appears to perk up and observe Sunny with her bright eyes.
Baby number three receives the last check with a sniff and a kiss. Everything looks to be in order, according to Sunny. “My job here is done.”
Sunny looks up at the camera, as if to reassure her mother that everything is well.
Now, he can finally unwind as he knows that his children are safe and in capable hands.
In another post, Barnes shared a nice photo of Sunny getting in on the cuddles.
He keeps an eye on the children while also keeping them warm and comfortable.
While most dogs enjoy puppies and infants, it takes a certain breed to keep an eye on them while providing also providing the best cuddles.
Sunny seems to like being around these little ones, and I’m sure they do as well.
We love you Sunny!
