Great Dane Cuddles Baby & All Is Right With the World (VIDEO)

great dane and babyWhat's cuter than a baby and a dog cuddling up together? That was a trick question, obviously, because NOTHING is cuter than a baby and a dog cuddling up together. Especially this particular dog/baby pair, Scooby the Great Dane and Cade (the baby). I'm not sure what, exactly, makes this cuddle session so especially cute ... maybe it's the fact that Cade is approximately the size of Scooby's head? Or maybe it's how persistent Scooby is about nuzzling his wee baby buddy. (The term "gentle giant" comes to mind.) I don't know, but one thing is for sure ...

These two are cute as all get-out. Just watch:

This video can not be viewed on The Stir Mobile.

See what I mean? Clearly Scooby (best name ever for a Great Dane, btw) and Cade are friends for life. I wouldn't be surprised if, in another year or so, Cade figures out how to ride Scooby around like a horse. Awww! That's gonna be soooo cute.

    My moms Great Dane Dexter is not cuddly with the babies lol

    He lays down and my dd roles around on him and sticks her fingers in his mouth and nose. He's completely gentle but the girls are so curious about him, it's the sweetest thing.

    As a great dane owner, and knowing the way my great danes are towards me there was no danger to this baby. My dog does this, nudging, and sniffing mouth and nose and ear a lot. It is simply how they show affection towards their owners. I could understand how someone who hasn't owned a great dane would look at these mannerisms as potentially dangerous but if you have had one you know this is normal dane affection behaviour. It was closely supervised which all dog interactions must be. Als othis dane is a puppy it is not even full grown and quite well behaved already.
