Video of Baby Snuggled Next to Puppy Fast Asleep Has Everyone Saying 'Aww'

Adorable footage of a newborn baby fast asleep next to his snoozing puppy companion has captured the hearts of millions on social media.

"We finally got eight hours of sleep," the caption reads. "It only took two days to get but whatever."

Essential viewing for new parents and dog lovers alike, the video has already racked up more than 6.7 million views on social media and can be viewed here.

A loving reminder of the trials and tribulations associated with newborns, the clip also serves as a fond recollection for many of those adorable early days as a dog owner looking after a young pup.

For many, the video also showcased the strong bonds often built between children and their pets even at this early age and the value in having dogs and other animals in the family home.

As much as anything, the clip offered some much-needed respite from the outside stresses of the world with many taking to the comments section to simply write "aww."

Some, like Chelsea Tapia, were in awe of the poster for juggling the demands of a young child and a new pet so brilliantly. "You have a newborn and a puppy," she extolled. "Bless your soul and your energy." Irene concurred with that sentiment, writing "Girl idk how u handle a baby and a puppy at the same time, the energy."

K I Y A H, meanwhile declared the super cute duo "lifelong best friends" after watching the video. C agreed, writing "they are going to be best friends growing up together."

Others, like Gabby, were simply entranced by what they saw. "How many times did I watch this? No one will ever know," she joked. "I've watched this so many times," Candace Rebecca wrote. "I just can't with all the cuteness."
