Moment dog knocks over baby Elena in Merseyside

No walkies for you! Moment Olive the dog knocks over baby Elena as she takes her first wobbly steps

  • Kylie Cousins was filming her daughter Elena’s first tentative steps on her phone
  • As her one-year-old daughter stood up unsteadily, her pet dog Olive approached
  • Olive excitedly jumped at the toddler who was struggling to stand up straight
  • The dog knocked over Elena but luckily she was not harmed after falling down 

This is the charming moment a toddler was trying to walk when her family’s pet dog knocked her to the ground.  

Kylie Cousins filmed her daughter Elena, aged one, who was excited at the prospect of being able to walk for the first time. 

As her daughter laughed and danced on the spot in the living room of the family’s Merseyside home, their dog Olive decided to join in on the fun. 

Elena jigged up and down on the spot as she took her first wobbly steps

Olive bounded over to baby Elena and jumped up on her chest as the child balanced unsteadily on her feet. 

Unable to cope with the additional weight of the small dog, Elena toppled to the ground, but was unharmed. 

According to Ms Cousins: ‘Elena has just turned one and is starting to walk. Olive is her dog who was a bit too excited about it and the results are hilarious.’

Ms Cousins added that despite being knocked over by Olive, Elena remains her ‘best friend’.
