A struggling toddler gets a crawling lesson from her helpful dog friend.
"Just drop some hot dog pieces on the floor later on, and we'll call it even."
Look, crawling is hard! You might think it's a piece of cake now because you mastered it, like, a couple decades ago. But just try and think back to what it was like when you were still trying to make out what your hands and feet were for, and had yet to grasp the basic concept of quadrupedal propulsive locomotion. It's complicated business.
So, it's kind of heartwarming to see this little girl, referred to as Bear Bear, getting a head's up from Buddy, the family dog. I'm sure he realizes that this girl is going to be his ticket to a lot of castaway food in the coming months, so he's probably thinking that it's best to get in her good graces early.
Buddy's actual attempt to crawl like a human puppy is clearly adorable, but my favorite part is when he nudges her with his nose and is all like, "Yo, check this out." That's a "Yo, check this out" nudge if I ever saw one.
