In the adorable video, uploaded to Youtube by Sam Giovanini, the little boy even seems to try to get the dog to pipe down as he grandstands for mom’s attention. In a later video uploaded by the same user, it’s clear that Patch, a miniature Australian shepherd, did get rewarded for his extraordinary effort.

Not only can Patch speak, he’s also a very talented care dog. This little boy’s grandmother suffered a brain injury in a car accident and Patch has helped her recover, alerting the family to any seizures that she might have as a result of her injuries.
