People need to take some pointers on the right way to react to pregnancy news from this shocked young pup.
Nine times out of ten, discovering that yourself or someone close to you is pregnant is news to be celebrated. A joyous time as the process of bringing a brand new human being into the fold begins. However, even if finding out someone is pregnant is the happiest of occasions, when you're taken by surprise, reacting properly is tricky.
We've all been there, even if it is for something else other than a pregnancy announcement. Think opening a present and having to react in the right way to what's inside. Sometimes our instincts kick in and we give a kneejerk reaction rather than what we really feel/how we should react. Even something as innocent as a short pause before you congratulate the mom-to-be can be misconstrued.
Lucky for the animal kingdom, they don't have such trivial societal norms to worry about. That has been perfectly demonstrated by Raegan the Weimaraner. Jacob Holbrook and Katie Gillum caught the puppy's shocked reaction to the latter's baby bump and it is nothing short of hilarious. Raegan first looks up at Katie, jaw on the floor, and then turns to look at the camera.
Metro reports that the couple intended to get a couple of progress photos and wound up with what has understandably become a worldwide viral hit. Raegan looks how many of us feel on the inside when certain people reveal that they're pregnant, but since he's a dog, he has the luxury of letting his inside feelings manifest on the outside. Only a pup as cute as Raegan can get away with that.
Since little Raegan is only nine months old, chances are he has never seen a pregnant woman before. He definitely won't have seen his owner complete with baby bump, hence the shocked look on his face. Apparently, the Weimaraner loves kids so will be a great canine brother to the little one that is on the way. We wonder if he will react in the same way to meeting him or her for the first time.
