Instant Best Friends: Infant In Hysterics Meeting A Dog For The Very First Time

A baby laughs as he sits on the floor, looking down at a dachshund who is looking back up at him.

Adorable little dogs and sweet baby laughter are some of the best joys in life. Put them together and you’ve got a viral video with over 23 million views and counting. This must-see video was shared on a family account by parents Kristen and Elijah McKinney. In it, we see their 6-month-old son, Easton, sitting on the floor. Little does this baby know that he is mere moments away from meeting a dog for the very first time.

Right out of the gate, quite literally, these two cuties have an instant bond. While the pup can’t stop running about, tail wagging over their new human sibling, Easton simply can’t stop giggling. In fact, he laughs so much, he even falls over at some point! But not even this tiny fall can deter his laughter for long. Watch the adorable moment these best friends for life meet in the video below!


This went on for 30 minutes straight. Favorite video in my camera roll right now 😂
