Taco, the big fluffy light blonde Golden Retriever, is all about his family, as evidenced by his TikTok channel.

He is the first to sound the alarm when his best friend, little Vanora, wakes up from her nap.

In this sweet TikTok, Taco alerts his owner that the baby is awake by nudging him with his nose and excitedly trotting towards the locked room where Vanora is sleeping.

“Taco just came over and chomped on my hands while I was working. He’s definitely his protector,” the caption read.

As soon as the door is opened, the pooch makes his way inside, sits next to the crib and happily scratches. There’s her boyfriend, awake and standing in his crib.

Vanora’s mom probably doesn’t even need a baby watch with such a diligent dog protector around you! As the caption of a post on the couple’s Instagram says, they truly are “best friends forever.”

TikTok users wished they had a dog for a baby monitor and thought Taco’s protective behavior was adorable, the video with over 800,000 views has nearly 90,000 likes.

Most gushed about the retriever-baby duo, with one comment in two calling the duo “cute”, “sweet” or “beautiful”.

There’s also a lot of curiosity about Taco’s sudden itching when he reaches the toddler’s crib. His mom and Vanora’s mom think he’s itchy because he’s so happy to see his boyfriend.

“Excitement is one of the reasons dogs start scratching. Probably happy to see the baby,” one commenter wrote in agreement.
