There’s always a first time for everything. When it’s your first time to do anything, you feel especially nervous over the possibilities of that moment.
For Scott Moore, a fur dad and father to a newborn son, nothing can tense him up more than the first meeting of his son and beloved beagle, Buddy.
Buddy finally meets baby boy.
For first-time parents, anything that concerns their child scares them out of their wits. As such, most parents would dive into extensive research first before trying out anything new with the baby.
Unlike most fur parents who eagerly introduce their newborn child to their dogs, Scott Moore and his wife chose to do otherwise. For fear that his son and their beagle named Buddy wouldn’t hit it off, the new parents opted to keep the two apart for several months.
Finally, the time came for Scott to schedule Buddy and their son’s first meet-up session. And it looks like they’re bound for some fun session when the baby curiously looked at the incoming Buddy.
Ooh! Who’s that fellow over there.
As Scott wanted to capture this moment forever, he set-up a camera nearby and hid behind it. By the looks of what he recorded on tape, Scott need not worry with the pair’s relationship.
The video starts with the baby boy lying on his back, entertaining himself with his feet up in the air. Out of the blue, Buddy the beagle enters the boy’s room. At first, Buddy made an apprehensive glance towards the baby, before giving him a friendly lick and sauntering off.
However, this sweet gesture captured the baby’s attention. As soon as Buddy disappeared into a far corner of the room, the boy immediately propped himself on all-fours and crawled towards the dog’s direction.
Hello there! What’s your name?
It seems Buddy plays hard-to-get around the baby. It’s not surprising though, as the dog probably feels equally nervous with the meet-up. But, Buddy’s curiosity prevailed, and off he went crawling towards the adorable baby.
Before the pair could fully come close to each other, Buddy once again lies on his back. Shaking and wriggling on the floor while the astonished baby looked, it looks like the beagle tries to convince the baby to play with him.
After the short intermission number, Buddy leaped towards his new friend and allowed the boy to touch his furry head. And, to show how he loves it, Buddy indulges the boy with a few more friendly licks before rolling back down to ask for some belly rubs.
