Man's Best Fetal Monitor (PHOTO)

Yep, dogs looove babies -- sometimes, even before they're born.

Apparently, this Aussie, a ranch dog, became uber-protective of his soon-to-be little sibling right as Mom entered her second trimester. "His ears go up whenever the kid goes into its ninja practice, but he keeps his ear right to the belly," said Reddit user Nicrestrepo, who posted the sweet photo, adding: "Best fetal monitor."
