The viral TikTok posted by @hdbrosriley has garnered over 1.6 million views and shows the new mom with her newborn baby and the sad golden retriever laying her head on her human’s shoulder. It feels like the moment the poor pup realized he wasn’t the only attention-grabbing one in the house anymore.
The video got more than 117,000 likes and hundreds of comments from people reporting that their furry friends are getting jealous of newborn babies.
“He is like a human big brother. Soon he will notice he has a fun new toy that sometimes stinks and cries so hard, but is his best friend forever,” one user wrote.
Another said: “He’s going to pack his bags, he doesn’t deserve to be replaced like this.”
Jealousy is normal with dogs, but it’s important to prepare your dog before having a new baby. For more information and guidance, see BCSPCA.
