When it came time to learn how to crawl, this baby had two adorable study buddies by his side.
In a video posted to YouTube, a pair of Alaskan Malamutes put their best paws forward to help their little friend. And they clearly deserve a treat or two: Although they’ve already mastered the curriculum – obviously! – they’re more than patient with their two-legged peer.
After all, they probably remember all of those ruff times in obedience class when they just couldn’t figure out what “sit” means. They’re come a long way, guys. Now, they’re paying it fur-ward.
