Humans aren’t the only the species that can be made powerless by a litter of puppies.

The capuchin monkey in this video can barely handle how doggone adorable these furry newborns. Meeting them for the first time, the monkey decides to make a strong first impression by covering the barking bundles with kisses and hugs.

Still transfixed by the puppies, this capuchin canine lover transitions from nuzzles to neck rubs. Puppy massage is a gift that comes naturally to this little animal, and we are more than happy to watch him practice his craft.
