Baby learns how to feed gentle golden retriever

July 10th, 2020

Giving babies their own YouTube channels is apparently a thing now – and Zlata has managed to amass nearly half a million views on her videos since her parents started uploading them in March of this year.

The theme of “Zlata Life” seems to be “cute baby doing cute things.” So if that’s you’re genre, you’re in luck!

Zlata’s most famous video so far – and the one that accounts for nearly all of those half-million views – stars the other cute creature in the house, Bailey. Bailey is the family’s patient and gentle Golden Retriever.

Zlata has also met bunnies and a kitten and, most recently, a baby chicken, in her videos.

But Bailey is by far the most popular animal – both videos with him have raked in over 100,000 views.

That’s probably because Bailey has his own media empire (which makes sense being the eldest child and all). He got his start in 2018 and has accumulated over 55 MILLION views on YouTube. Take that, tiny human!

While there doesn’t seem to be any sibling YouTube rivalry yet, we feel like their parents might be planning that video in the near future.

And because we know you’re wondering, Bailey also gets to meet bunnies and chickens and kittens in his videos. It’s an even playing field for the “kids” in this Spanish family living on the Costa del Sol in Spain.

Now, lest you think this is overkill, we’re pretty sure Bailey actually has two YouTube channels even though one was created before he was born. If you’d like to figure out that mystery, you can check out the differences between Funny Dog Bailey and This is Bailey.

Either way, Zlata better get back to making videos before Bailey becomes too powerful and she can never catch up.

Luckily, they teamed up for this very special video that involves Zlata feeding her dog.

It starts with Bailey jumping up on the couch where the infant is sitting.

And she looks pretty excited to see her dog (although she might just be anticipating the numbers for this video, knowing it’s going to go on her channel and not his).

Bailey looks like he knows it too.

It’s clear that the dog has more camera experience and knows how to be the center of attention, but Zlata is catching on.

She’s not going to play second fiddle in her own video. She just needs to figure out how to up the human cuteness quotient.

But Bailey isn’t giving up the spotlight.

He plays with his toy while the baby tries to find a way to get his attention. He also ignores her expertly.

Luckily, mom knows how to get this cuteness train on the road and she brings in a snack that both co-stars are interested in.

It’s a dog snack, though, so Zlata is going to have to wait for her own treat. In the meantime, she’ll get a chance to practice feeding Bailey.

She’s not entirely thrilled but goes along with it as the pup looks on expectantly.

The question is, will Bailey cooperate?

He seems less than excited to have to wait for Zlata to figure this out as he looks at his mom with pleading eyes.

But this is show business, baby!

Finally, Bailey gives up – he knows he’s going to have to wait this out if it’s intended to be a learning experience for the new resident human.

For her part, Zlata is far more interested in playing with the box.

And the dog is almost begging to just get the treat out for himself.

Will she feed him? Will Bailey ever get the treat he so richly deserves?
