There’s so much cuteness in the world, but something about baby goats makes us stop and say, “Awwww!” One group of kids found their herding dog asleep on the job and did all they could to wake him. They want the pup to join the fun, but he has better things to do, like catching up on beauty sleep.


The Great Pyrenees is trained to watch and guard livestock, but instead of keeping a close doggy eye on his furry friends, he fell into a slumber. The little ones run amuck, trying to get his attention. But nope! He doesn’t budge. It officially seems that the pup is sleeping on the job.


But then, amazingly, the Great Pyrenees lifts his head and opens his eyes to ensure his kids are safe. Even though he seems to be in his own world, he’s still protecting the frisky babies. While it seems he couldn’t care less, the baby goats are still a top priority, even in dreamland.


One curious kid eventually checks on the dog to make sure he’s still breathing! They love their guard dog, and it’s just too precious to miss! See all the cuteness and hysterics for yourself in the video below. And don’t forget to share this adorable story to make someone else’s day!
