Feeling the baby’s kick, the Australian Kelpie dog’s ears perked up, and glanced at its owners, looking confused.

The video, containing a series of short clips of the dog feeling its owner's bump, shows how the pup’s reaction initial reaction changed as days went by.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) claims that dogs know if their owners are pregnant because expecting women change their scent in some way.

She's going to be the best big sister ever.”
