We all know that babies and dogs can bring so much fun and smiles into a home, and that is certainly the case for the Diaz-Giovanini family from Utah. Mom Andrea wanted to reward her nine-month-old boy Sam and wanted to hear the word “mama” come out of his mouth, but she certainly didn’t expect to hear it coming from someone else!
The adorable dog Patch almost immediately listened to her and howls “mama” a few times.
It’s absolutely sweet, hilarious and about the most loveable thing we’ve seen all day. Patch’s howl is also surprisingly accurate. This dog has quite the talent!
The pup also always kept his eyes locked on the food that Andrea was holding in her hand, as if he wanted to claim the reward completely for himself.
The whole thing becomes even funnier when baby Sam realizes that Patch is trying to steal his spotlight.
Patch is a trained miniature Australian Shepard Dog and is incredibly loyal and trustworthy. He’s a very special member of the family, as Patch helped severely in the recovery process of the family’s grandmother who had suffered a brain injury due to a car accident. Whenever Patch feels that grandma could be having a seizure because of her injuries, he always alerts another family member right away.
A lot of people were a bit concerned about Patch’s appetite, as the video doesn’t show the pup getting rewarded for his speaking ability.
“That dog deserves more than just that bite of food after that!” one person wrote.
“Thank you for posting this 🙂 I really wanted to know if the dog was rewarded for being a genius,” another comment said.
“The dog was so desperately wanting the foods that he will do anything to please. And he definitely EARNS it fair and square! I hope the mom gave the dog the reward he needed, the dog is so adorable (and the baby too of course) that it almost cruel not to.”
Luckily, there was nothing to worry about. The couple posted a follow-up video on YouTube where you can see Patch finally getting the treat he deserves.
“For the many concerned individuals claiming that the dog from “Dog Says Mama, Baby Can’t” didn’t never got a treat, here is one brief clip of just one bite he got from that night,” the family posted.
The original video has quickly gone viral with over 10.5 million views on YouTube.
