Let’s be honest, every parents wants their baby’s first word to be something specific. That’s probably why they repeat the word to them over and over, right? To try and help them speak out the sounds of that word. In the case of moms and dads, they usually want that word to be mama or dada. And if repeating the sound isn’t getting through to them? The next best thing is to promise your baby some kind of treat while you repeat the word in question.

Well, that’s exactly what this mom was trying to do.

Patch, a gorgeous Australian Shepard, is standing next to the baby, staring at that bite of food even more intensely than the kid is. And after mom says “mama” a few times, Patch does something incredible.
