“Family” truly is a ‘four-legged’ word. Growing up with pets teaches kids about empathy and responsibility while giving them a best friend that is loyal through and through. If you grew up with a dog, then you know exactly what having a loyal companion means to a child. It simply means everything.

The video below, though grainy (adding to its timeless charm), shows a mom who wants to capture a cherishable moment with her little girl and her little girl’s best friend. The best friend, a.k.a the family dog, sits beside his favorite little girl and prepares for a photo-op.

The duo is utterly adorable. You can easily tell that the little girl loves her doggy brother and that her dog loves her back.

What comes next is so darn perfect, it’s as if Mom won the photo-op lottery. Mom politely commands her doggo to ‘smile for the camera’ and gets an epic reaction that has been entertaining audiences for decades.

See for yourself! It’s the cutest little video you can play again and again and never tire of it.
