Tiny Baby Is Learning To Crawl, But It’s The Family Dog That Has Internet In Laughter

Mom and Charlie are practicing crawling on the ground when something marvelous happened! Charlie began to make small movements that resembled actual crawling. Mom ran over for her camera, but when she started recording, the family dog decided to get Mom’s attention instead. Thank goodness the camera was already running because this pup’s obviously jealous behavior was too darn funny! Now you can watch what the dog did for yourself…

Even though it may seem silly that our furry family members get jealous of other dogs and little humans like Charlie, a recent study covered by the BBC concluded that is, unquestionably, the case. The study found that the dogs tested did experience jealousy when their human tried to pet a fake dog. Instead of allowing their humans to pet the phony pup peacefully, the dogs were three times as likely to intervene physically as compared to when the human tried to read a book. This type of behavior prompted the scientists to conclude the dogs were weary of their human parents giving another living thing more attention – which is the common staple of jealousy! For those with dogs of their own, this conclusion isn’t surprising!

That type of jealous behavior is exactly what Mom experienced when she tried to get Charlie to crawl her way! Katniss, the family’s adorable dachshund, heard Mom call for her baby and stuck her head right in the way of the camera lens. Rather than look guilty for stealing Mom’s attention, Katniss sat there waiting for rubs happily! This goofy pup knew what she was doing and didn’t have an ounce of remorse. Take a peek at this pup’s hilarious jealousy by pressing “play” on the video below. Anyone can see that Katniss loves to be the center of attention!
