A heartwarming video of Charlie the Beagle showering a baby with toys after taking her plaything — and inadvertently making her cry — has gone viral.
Evidently feeling guilty for causing the little one’s tears, Charlie proceeds to pile toys into her bouncer seat – and even gives her a little affectionate lick.
Hilariously, the baby ends up with a ball, video game controller and teddy bear on top of her, as the dog tries to make up for his actions - much to her parents' amusement, who were filming the scene.
The video has already notched up over three million hits since it was uploaded – and gives a new meaning to the phrase Man’s Best Friend.
