This adorable footage shows how one couple found the ultimate babysitter for their child, using their super nanny dog to undertake the most important childcare tasks.
The beautiful friendship that has blossomed between five-month-old Leonardo Kuzmychova and his four-legged friend, Chiko, is showcased as the inseparable youngsters relaxes on his mat while Chiko holds up a tablet, watches an variety of videos with him – even acting as a pillow.
While having a rare minute to relax, besotted mum Olesia Kuzmychova watched on as the adorable moments played out, on May 9.
Olesia, from Hong Kong, said: “Since the moment Leo was born, he and Chiko have been inseparable.
“Since Leo has been weeks old, he will just stare at the dog and smile – they really are best friends.
“When I arrive home with Leo in the stroller, Chiko will immediately check to see if his little man is safe and well.
“If there are any sounds of crying, the dog will go and check on him, instantly calming Leo’s tears and ending the cries.
“Anywhere we go, Chiko will always have one eye on Leo – he’s always been very protective of him and is glued to his side.”
Whenever the duo are out together, people will stop the family and comment on the extremely cute friendship they share.
