Dogs really are man’s best friend. It is hard to imagine that they are far beyond our credit.
One woman highlighted this important statement in a TikTok video recently posted on her account mamabwelsh.
The mother showed off how her dog sniffed her belly while she was in danger of becoming pregnant.
Mother Britney Welsh shared a video of her golden retriever sniffing her belly when she was eight months pregnant.
“One time I was eight months pregnant and my dog was trying to tell me something was wrong and I didn’t realize it,” the caption reads in the video.
In the video, Goldie can be seen sniffing and eagerly trying to shove Welsh – as if he’s trying to get her out of the room and out the door.
He circled her around and even licked her throughout the video.
However, towards the end of the video, the dog refuses to let Wales keep his paws on the floor.
While Wales is sitting, Goldie gets off the snake and puts his foot on top of him, then comes back when Wales moves his leg. Welsh revealed that her dog was trying to warn her.
In another caption that appears in the video, Welsh explains how it turned out that she had a severe UTI that was sending her into premature labor that only dogs noticed.
“Fortunately I went to be monitored and was given a lot of medication,” she wrote.
Users in the comments shared their own stories highlighting why we really don’t deserve animals.
Animals are on another level that we humans can never comprehend, and it’s scientifically proven.
According to Wisconsin Pet Care, “Certain breeds of dogs may have 40 to 50 times more olfactory receptors than us humans, making their sense of smell about 100,000 times stronger than ours. ”
So when a person gets sick or becomes pregnant, “their body chemistry changes, and a dog’s sensitive nose may be able to detect these subtle changes.”
It’s not hard to understand why so many of these animals have become service dogs.
Users in the comments shared their stories and experiences with male best friends, mostly during pregnancy.
“[My dog] I woke up at 5am, rubbed my stomach and whined. My water broke when I got up! ” wrote one woman.
