Monkey see, monkey do. Or in this case, it’s more like puppy see, puppy do.
We all need an older sibling to show us the ropes as we grow up. It’s part of that complicated sibling bond.
At the same time, there’s a sibling bond shared amongst the animal kingdom as well. In an adorable video, a puppy gets a life lesson from her big sis, and it is the cutest thing to watch.
In the footage, Willow is a tiny puppy who is scratching at the back door, hoping to get someone to notice her. She wants to come back inside but needs to be let in. Luckily for Willow, someone does notice her – her older doggie sister, Blue.
Blue then takes it upon herself to teach Willow a valuable life skill for a dog: how to use the doggie door. It is a skill she’d have to figure out eventually, one that makes getting back into the house a hundred times easier for the whole household.
In fact, Willow’s humans had been trying to teach her how to use the doggie door, but in the end, it was Blue who had the magic touch to get Willow to understand just how to use it.
As Blue and Willow’s owners explained to ViralHog: “One morning we were teaching our new puppy Willow how to use the doggie door. With little success, then big sister Blue stepped in and just showed her the way in. Blue stayed outside and made sure her little sister made it in.”
What great siblings are they?
Watch Blue give Willow her canine wisdom in the clip below:
