Finding The Perfect Resting Spot

The pure joy expressed on the cheerful face of a happy baby is so contagious that it makes you smile spontaneously. In this instance, the little one has climbed onto Buddy, the family Labrador’s fluffy back. Buddy appears unconcerned by the extra passenger, and the child is thrilled to have a warm, cozy spot to rest on. It’s clear that the two are great pals and that Buddy has the child’s back.

Best Friends

Friends Of All Sizes

Taking a short break to rest is beneficial after a tiring day of entertainment. Although Great Danes are recognized for being massive dogs, Gus appears to comfortably fit on the couch like a human, which is quite surprising. In addition, despite being large in size, his friendliness towards humans makes it evident that friendships are possible with any creature.

Testing The Limits

Although the labrador has a strong desire to show his friend love by showering them with attention, the child’s expression shows discomfort from the wet-nosed licks. It’s natural for parents to be protective of their children, but it’s also important to test their boundaries. Initially, a child may be uneasy around their furry friend, but since they will be growing up together, it’s beneficial for them to become familiar with one another.

A Friend To Play With

If you have ever experienced jumping on a trampoline during your childhood, you understand the limitless entertainment it provides.

The bond between a boy and his dog is extraordinary, and these two are living proof of that.

She Wanted To Be a Sheepdog For Halloween, So…

Children spend months planning the ideal Halloween costume since it only occurs once a year.

She decided to dress up like her furry companion for Halloween, and the result was too cute for words. They look fantastic in their matching outfits, and we can’t decide who pulled it off better!

Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

Regarding different types of dogs, Pit bulls are recognized for being resilient animals. Although the dog’s behavior is primarily dependent on the way they are raised, with proper care, they can be the gentlest creatures.

Nevertheless, after engaging with him for a while, the two became closely attached and now even nap on the sofa together in the afternoons.

He Never Got To Meet His Great-Grandfather, But He Inherited His Best Friend…

Jamie’s great-grandfather had passed away shortly before he was born. Although it was a sad time for the family, it was also filled with a little happiness. In addition to losing a family member, they also gained a son and a dog. Peach the Pomeranian was Jamie’s great-grandfather’s best friend, and the two of them grew up together. The dog was ultimately left to Jamie in his great-grandfather’s will. Nowadays, Jamie and Peach like to go on adventures together.

Teaching Them How To Share

The scent of newly washed clothes is delightful, but certain pieces of clothing require special care. Upon checking the laundry basket, the mother discovered two unexpected items.

20 Minutes Of Friendship Is Like 20 Years For Dogs

Driving for extended periods can prove extremely fatiguing, especially for young kids. Johnny, after making a long journey to the shelter, was eager to take home his new pet Leela. Despite Leela’s high spirits about finding a new home, the exertion took its toll. Not even 20 minutes into the drive back, Johnny’s mom caught sight of these two napping on each other as if they had been lifelong friends. It appears that all the exhilaration had worn them out.

“Can She Pet Your Dog?”

Rudy and his owners were dining at a nearby restaurant late one evening when a family with a thrilled little girl walked by. The family asked if the little girl could pet Rudy, to which Rudy’s owners replied, “Absolutely!” With excitement, the girl went over to Rudy and not only petted him but also shocked everyone by kissing him on the face.

As Long As They’re Happy, Right?

As parents, we all know that our children are full of energy and love to play. However, this also means that we have to constantly tidy up after them. Even though cleaning up may not be fun, capturing a moment of our children’s joy through a photograph can create a cherished memory for us as parents. While the mess created by their playtime may require another grocery trip for mom, at least the happiness of the children makes it all worth it.

Learning To Use Your Words?

It can be challenging for parents to enforce discipline on their kids, especially given the influential impact of peer pressure. In Amy’s case, her parents taught her to request food verbally when hunger strikes, but she seems to have adopted a non-verbal communication method from her close friend where they both stick out their tongues and plead when they’re hungry.

Caught Red-Handed

We’re pretty certain this little kid had a good idea in mind when he decided to bring Buster, the family pooch, into his parents’ room. Although we’re not sure why he decided to bring all the food with him, something about the look on their faces says that they were up to no good. There’s a good chance that the little boy assumed that his parents’ room would make an ideal playroom for him and Buster, at least until he got caught!

Great Minds Think Alike

These two have such a priceless expression painted on their faces! What’s that going on outside? It looks like the ice cream truck has pulled up and they’re already imagining the different flavors they’re going to tuck into! Although she’s not supposed to, she always sneaks her pup a few licks of the tasty treat, so now the two of them have the same reaction every time the truck arrives. She may have broken the rules, but anything for friendship and ice cream, right?

The Search For The Perfect Babysitter Is Over

When little Laura’s parents went in the other room to make her a snack, they could only hope and pray that she wouldn’t get into any sort of trouble. However, when they came back with some chopped up carrots, they found the perfect surprise – their dog, Roscoe, had taken on the role of babysitter. Now, they no longer have to worry – dog-sitter is there to help them out, and there’s nobody better for the job.

A Friendly Face To Cheer Him Up

There are only so many ways to ensure that your pooch doesn’t scratch or lick himself when he’s dealing with an infection. However, that doesn’t mean they’re happy about the situation. Having a cone can be sad for a dog, so his small human friend decided not to let it get in the way of him giving his favorite furry friend some face time. Thankfully, a cone alone is not enough to prevent the affection of a young child from coming through!

Therapy Dogs? More Like Therapy Humans

After coming home from the vet, this dog was lucky enough to have a friend waiting for him to give him lots of love and attention. They say that pet therapy is a good way to help people heal, however, human therapy for pets can be equally as healing. While healing can take time, knowing that there’s someone who cares for you is a really reassuring thought and incredibly healing. Hopefully, this pooch will feel better with the love of his human. Get well soon!

“But He Looks Nothing Like Us!”

These days, the idea of adoption has started gaining a lot more traction. When parents aren’t able to conceive or would simply like to try giving a child in worse off circumstances a better chance at life, adoption becomes the best option. These proud parents look like they’re already in love with their new child and while the baby might have to adjust being raised by a pair of dogs, we’re certain that they’ll make wonderful parents anyway! Best of luck, mom and dad!

Her Favorite Kind Of Treatment

Not every illness has a cure or a straightforward form of treatment. Sometimes, you just have to let time and nature run its course and wait until the pain is over. However, if you have the warm embrace of a dog, this might actually make the difference. It certainly did for this little girl, who was stuck at home with a fever. When her two canine friends lay on her, she made a speedy recovery.

Free Hugs For A Good Boy

It seems like hugs are a kind of gesture that all species can understand. One woman posted a photo of her son and dog warmly embracing each other, confessing that her little boy has “always been a hugger.” She also confessed that her dog has not always been entirely comfortable with this expression of love. However, in her words, the pooch soon “came around” and now enjoys hugs just as much as the next person.

Doggo To The Rescue

Not only do dogs cry out for love and attention, they also know how to return the favor. Many parents will agree that when one of their kids is upset, their dog will sense it and try to do something about it. Take this baby, for example, who soon stopped crying after his dog came to comfort him. “Even if my son so much as cries, he rushes in to save his life,” the parent wrote. “Best buds.”

Please, Don’t Go!

They say that out of all the animals, dogs have the biggest personalities. When you see photos like this one, it’s not difficult to see why. Some dogs get so attached to their guardians and their kids that they’ll throw a fit when they exit the house. When this boy was about to leave to go to school, the dog decided to sit on him in a desperate attempt to stop him from going. The things we do for love.

Love Is In The Air

We normally associate Valentine’s Day with the celebration of love between couples. However, who said that a father can’t buy a present for his child to celebrate this day?

It is clear that the little girl is over the moon and excited to take care of this little pup. The look on her face is absolutely priceless.

A Furry Friend Offers Love And Support

Times can be tough, this much we know for sure. So it pays to know that you can always find love and support in man’s best friend to get you by when you’re running low. Little Suzy was in need of a hug and turned to the friend she loves best – her pooch! Every time she’s had a bad day at school or has gotten in trouble, she runs to her dog and finds comfort in his embrace.

She Could Have Dragged Him Across The Floor, But…

When you’re fighting over your toys, it’s easy to see how a little tug of war can break out quite quickly. While this golden is clearly much bigger and stronger than his her owner, and could have dragged him around by pulling on the toy, winning tug of war in a second, she’s a gentle giant. She would rather give her small friend a sense of power than win the game – that’s love.

Nobody Messes with My Human

Winter is a cold and wet time of the year and while some may not quite enjoy this kind of weather, a lot of people really do. This little girl got all dressed to go play in the rain.

This Is Why They Say Having A Dog Is Preparation For Having Children…

The true Peacemaker

As we all know, children can be really energetic little creatures, and when you put two together, their energy can clash and fights break out over toys, food, or attention.

As long as he’s happy, they’re happy – and then the parents are happy too!
