'Show Him How to Do it, Kahlua!' Paralyzed Dog Shows Baby How to Crawl

A Port Charlotte, Florida, mother filmed her toddler trying to copy the family’s paralyzed dog’s way of moving around the house.

Lori Dugas said she filmed the video on on August 3. In the adorable video, baby Caleb can be seen observing the way Kahlua the dog moves, as the canine hops past him in what looks like an attempt to teach him. Caleb then starts moving with his leg tucked under his body.

Dugas originally posted the footage to her TikTok account with the caption “our paralyzed dog taught the baby how to crawl.” Under the post, she asked her community: “Seriously, is this why he doesn’t crawl?”

In the footage, she is heard saying, “Show him how to do it, Kahlua!”

Dugas explained in a previous video that Kahlua had broken her spine by falling from a three-story balcony, and that the injury had left her paralyzed.

She adopted the dog after her foster family helped her adjust to a new way of life. She said, “She’s been with us ever since, she is an amazing addition to our home.” Credit: Lori Dugas via Storyful
