There is something almost other worldly about the connection between dogs and children. It is like both can see the innocence and purity in each other. Also, the cutness overload that happens when dogs and kids meet up is also something worth noting. You can be having the worst week ever and be in the most miserable mood you have been in for months, and all it takes it one or two dog and child videos to really take you out of that funk and put a smile back on your face.
It is with that in mind that we decided to comb the web for the best, funniest, and cutest dog and child videos out there. After all, it is the heart of February. Half of the country is in a polar vortex and blanketed with snow. Sometimes, even the best of us can fall into a slight depression during this time of the year.
But guess what? We can pretty much ensure that you will no longer be sad by the time you finish this list. This list is just the kind of thing that can turn your whole day around. Heck, it can turn your whole month around.
So make sure the thermostat is high, keep that cup of steaming cocoa next to you, and check out these ten utterly adorable dog and child videos. Guaranteed to put even the saddest soul in a better mood.

The Dog Waits For Puddle Play Time
This video is so awesome because you can clearly tell it is the dog walking the kid and not the other way around. We know you have seen this one. The little girl is walking with dog, and she sees a puddle. She drops the leash and goes to play in puddle (because that is what kids do).
The best part, the dog sees she dropped the leash, and just waits patiently for her play time in the puddle to pass. Once she is done, she walks over, picks up the leash, and they walk on like nothing ever happened.
So much cute.
Dog Gives Extra Love to Extra Special Boy
This one is kind of hard to talk about without getting choked up. A young boy with Down’s Syndrome meets a dog for the first time, and you can honestly tell the dog is doing every single thing he can to connect with the boy. Doing all he can to make the boy feel loved and to let him know he is safe.
Like we said, it takes a hardened heart not to get choked up over this amazing video and even more amazing connection.
The Retriever and the Baby
It may be less emotional than the other videos, but there is a solid reason we wanted to include this video. Please note just how patient and gentle the dog is with this small child.
You can just tell by their interactions that the dog is very much aware this is a small, precious human, and acts very gentle and patient as a result.
Also, plain to see these two are going to be best friends for many, many years to come.
Happy Dog Loves Making Baby Laugh
Okay, so this dog may be a little less mellow than the others on the list, but he is just as loving and awesome. It is clear to see he knows he is entertaining the baby, so he just keeps doing it so as to ensure the baby’s continued mirth.
Basically, the dog is just super excited, and this is getting the baby pumped up and happy, so he just keeps running circles and dashing. Pure joy and happiness, caught on tape.
Baby Finds It Hilarious Dog Is Eating Popcorn
Honestly, this kid’s laugh really pushes this entry in the cuteness category. For whatever reason, this baby finds this dog eating popcorn to be the funniest thing it has ever experienced. The dog is digging the popcorn, and the baby is digging the dog. So in essence, everyone is making everyone else happy.
But that laugh, though. Cutest laugh ever.
Dog Covers Baby With Blanket
This is another one that sort of blows the mind. We have seen dogs be sweet and gentle to babies, but in this case, the dog tucks the baby in. Seriously.
The dog, literally, pulls and pushes the blanket up until it is covering the baby, keeping it warm. So not only are they cute and sweet, but as you know, very protective of babies, too.
Man, this vid blows our mind. What a GREAT dog!
Kid Awed By Dog’s Slick Dance Moves
You can actually sense that this dog is blowing this kid’s mind with his awesome dance moves. Every time the dog stands up and does one of his spins, the kid laughs, but also makes a noise like: Oh wow! As if he knows he is seeing something amazing, and he is equal parts entertained and awed by it all.
Heck, even we can admit that dog has some snazzy dance moves.
Rottweiler As Gentle Baby Sitter
Certain dogs have certain reputations that we feel they truly should not deserve. Rottweilers are one such breed. This video proves they are just gentle teddy bears that want some love and affection.
Again, please note how gentle the dog is with the baby. Truly an adorable and awesome sight to behold.
Dogs and Laughing Babies (Compilation)
This is another case of us knowing we could have filled the list with just videos of babies laughing at dogs. But rather than do that, we wanted to give you as varied a collection of vids as we could.
That being said, here is an awesome compilation of babies laughing hysterically at dogs, often times for no good reason (which we all know is the best reason of all).
Baby Puppy AND Baby Human Bond
We sort of had no choice but to end with this video. We always like to go out on a great note when we end our lists, and what is cuter than a newborn baby and a newborn baby puppy playing on a blanket in a field. Nothing, that’s what!
So what did you think of our list of utterly adorable dog and child videos? Do you have one you love that we missed? Take to our comments and let us know. Maybe we will include it on a follow up.
