Smart Golden Retriever Correctly Predicts Gender of Human Parents' Baby

We can't get over this!

As a dog owner, I find myself continually impressed by my pups and their skills. They seem to instinctually know whenever I need an extra cuddle, and they can even anticipate events like earthquakes and thunderstorms before I do. So when I learned about this Golden Retriever who correctly predicted the gender of his owners' baby, I was instantly intrigued. 

This adorable story comes from 'pup-fluencer' @beaunosebones, who originally helped his parents announce their child's gender with a dog-friendly cake. But things were not quite as they seemed!

OMG! Gender reveal mix-ups can happen, but the fact that Beau knew something was up is seriously impressive. I had the exact same question as @officialhayleymarie who asked, "how did the dog know?!" 

There seems to be a gathering of evidence that proves some pets can detect owners' pregnancies, but whether an animal can predict a baby's gender is still uncertain. Still, it seems pretty hard to deny @alyshaharris2's simple explanation: "it's a dog. They sense things." You can say that again!

Dog mom @lizbbvth shared, "that’s so true! before our gender reveal we put a pink and blue balloon & he went for the blue one. Even after the reveal! And he was right!" If I were you, I would've been absolutely blown away.

If anything, I'm willing to bet @purplepeopleeater2398 is onto something. She said, "He just wanted a second cake and got lucky." LMAO! Any food-motivated pup would feel the exact same way, whether or not they had any idea what the dog-friendly cake is for. But all that matters here is that everyone's happy. Mom and Dad get to welcome a baby boy soon, and Beau gets to chow down on a (second) snack. It's a win-win!
