The short clip shows baby Harper's first attempts at crawling.

An adorable moment

The smiling tot shuffles along the floor while her best friend, Savannah the Labrador, looks on encouragingly.

Savannah seems to be saying, "Come on, little girl. You can do it!"

And so when Harper finally reaches her trusty companion, she gets the cutest of rewards.

The clip shows Savannah reaching out to her little human sister and planting the gentlest of kisses on her nose.
