Diz the dog has been with her owner since she was a puppy and has always been devoted to him. And when he got married, Diz welcomed his wife into the family with open arms and became as equally devoted to her as well.
“She has always been super protective of me, especially when my husband isn’t with me,” Brittany Johnson, Diz’s owner, said to The Dodo.
A few months ago, Diz’s owners found out they were expecting a baby. And while Diz noticed, she seemed a little unfazed at first.
“She would lay with her head against my belly for the first few weeks then she just kinda ignored me,” Johnson said.
However, that all quickly changed and soon, Diz had to be next to her mom at all times. It was almost as if her maternal instincts kicked in and she had to protect Johnson and her unborn child. Diz has refused to leave her side no matter what.
And recently as Johnson was showering, Diz would sit outside, standing guard. But after a while, she just decided to climb in and sit in the show with her.
“My showers have been longer and she followed me into the bathroom, then just peeked her head in and decided she was gonna sit in the shower,” Johnson said. “She sat there till I was done with my shower.”
Johnson is currently 20 weeks pregnant, so it wouldn’t be long now until Diz becomes the proud big sister of a new baby sibling. And so far, she seems to be doing a great job of practicing her protection skills by keeping an eye on Johnson at all times until the new addition arrives.
“‘Cause you know something might happen to me when she’s not watching,” Johnson said.
Dogs are the absolute cutest.
