Dog's Reaction to Owner Cuddling New Baby Has People in Tears: 'Bawling'

A video of a dog's expression as she looked on at her owner cuddling her new baby is breaking hearts everywhere.

Mom Rachel Westbrook captured the touching moment as she filmed herself interacting with her baby boy, thought to be named Jones.

The mom-of-two shared a clip to her TikTok page, @raebaebae90, at the end of March, saying: "I was trying to catch my son smiling while we were playing together. We were having a sweet, special moment just bonding and cuddling.

"It wasn't until I went back to look at the video I noticed my first "baby," my fur baby was watching in the background. She's comforted me through 3 miscarriages."

The clip shows her beloved pet, thought to be named Cookie, sitting down and looking on at the pair.

"Brb... gonna go cuddle my dog now," Westbrook captioned the video, which amassed 2.8 million views. It can be seen here.

Westbrook then uploaded the same footage a few days later, with that clip alone amassing 1.3 million views.

In response, numerous people asked for a follow-up video of Westbrook and Cookie, and the mom obliged.

She shared a montage of her pet, captioning it: "Y'all asked for it... she gets all the cuddles tonight."

The on-screen text said: "I've watched her become a mommy. She's watched me become a mommy. She was our first baby.

"Even though my two babies keep me busy these days, she still reminds me that a dog's love is unconditional."
