A Parent Was Worried About How the Dog Would React to Newborn Baby – Here’s What Happened in 7 Photos

It can be an unsettling thing, introducing a pet to a newborn baby. Though it’s extremely rare, there have been horror stories of dogs attacking unfamiliar newborns.

In a Sunday post, Reddit user banpeiSF said he was a little worried about his Corgi, Wilbur, meeting the family’s newborn baby. However, his concerns turned out to be completely unwarranted.

In fact, the two have seemingly become inseparable. Take a look (captions via Reddit):

As with all Reddit posts, there is a possibility that the photos are, staged or recycled. Either way, there’s no getting around it — these two are plain adorable.
