Initially, upon bringing Noah home, the pup was a little perplexed by the chubby-cheeked infant.
Eventually, though, he put two and two together.
"Astro sniffed Noah all over and then ran to his mommy," Corey said. "He sniffed her and got some pats, but then seemed confused. He went back to Noah and sniffed him again. Then he kind of looked at us like, 'Oh, OK. This is what was in Mommy’s belly — got it. I’ll keep him safe.'"
The dog didn't say that aloud, of course, but he meant it nevertheless.
