Dogs have that gentle, attentive care-taking instinct for sure, and it's always so heartwarming to see a pooch showing its version of familial love for a human being. Yet this has got to be the cutest, most LOL-worthy example of a dog looking after a person (in this case, an adorable toddler) that we've ever seen.
Apparently, it's almost time for bed, and this young girl is ready for her bath. Her mom doesn't have to worry, however; this doggy parent has it covered and will see to it that the little one gets cleaned up.
We just about died watching this dog lick its toddler clean, but what really gets us is the child's reaction. She's not only perfectly okay with being licked, she seems to really enjoy it. It's like a kid-dog version of a spa treatment!
