A local 2-year-old boy and his dog have gone viral.
There is all kinds of research that tells us having a pet for our kids is a good thing. But nothing helps nail that home quite like seeing the bond between our pets and kids in person. A mom from Michigan saw this firsthand and shared an adorable video to Facebook. The video features her 2-year-old son and their pet husky, Boston.
Alix Smith, 30, told FOX 17 she recorded an everyday moment last week when her son, Braxton Smith, 2, engaged in a howl-off with their 6-year-old husky, Boston.
“As he started to do it, I said, this is funny, and I started to record it. And they just kept doing it,” Alix said.
“I woke up the next day, and it had 20,000 views.”
The Facebook video now has 4.2 million views.
The video starts with a cute giggle from Braxton, followed by his impersonation of a dog howl. He giggles and howls again before Boston comes into frame and mom is heard saying, “Tell him,” before Boston replies with a howl of his own.
“This is what you get when your Toddler realizes he can talk to the Husky,” the mom writes in the caption of the Facebook video, which runs a minute and twenty seconds of pure giggle.
