Dogs Tucking Babies Into Bed: YouTube Videos Prove Pups Are Well-Versed In Baby Sleep Skills

A video showing a dog tucking a baby into bed has been doing the rounds on Facebook, with people commenting on the caring manner in which the Labrador gently uses her nose to push a blanket over the sleeping child.
