They say dog is man’s best friend – bue they’re also a child’s best friend and teacher.

Finding The Perfect Resting Spot

There’s something so infectious about the warm smile of pure emotion that you see on an infant’s face when they’re happy that you can’t help but smile back. This young one seems to have found his way onto the fluffy back of his big friend Buddy, the family labrador. Doggo over here doesn’t seem to mind having a friend on his back and the young child seems to be happier than ever to have something this warm and cozy to lie on! He’s got your back!



Best Friends

This picture is so cute, you can’t help but smile. This child loves her pet doberman more than anything, and the feeling is mutual! These two are best friends.

Best Friends



Friends Of All Sizes

After a long day of fun and games, it pays to take a break for a few moments and just rest up. Great Danes are known for being some of the biggest dogs in the world and it’s difficult to imagine such a big creature being able to fit on the couch as a human would – but Gus seems to manage pretty well. Not only that, she seems to have no fear of him despite his size, proving that anyone can be friends.

Maxing And Relaxing


Testing The Limits

Even though this labrador only wants to literally shower his friend with affection, the face on this little child looks notably uncomfortable with the licks of his wet-nosed pal. While all parents like to keep a close eye on their kids and protest them, it’s worth testing the limits, even when a child first may seem uncomfortable around its doggy friend – because at the end of the day, they’ll have to grow up together, so they might as well get used to each other!



A Friend To Play With

If you’ve ever been a kid on a trampoline, then you’ll know how seemingly endless the amount of fun is that you can have on one of these things! When this young girl decided to start jumping around early on a wintery morning, she was sad that she had no friends around to join her. Lucky, she realized that Billy would be the perfect companion. Billy seemed to enjoy himself, and she learned the true meaning of friendship.

She Wanted To Be a Sheepdog For Halloween, So…

Halloween only comes once a year – so every kid spends months befre thinking of just the perfect costume.

Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

As far as dog breeds go, Pit bulls are known for being pretty tough creatures. While a lot about the nature of the dog depends on their upbringing, with good nurturing they can be some of the softest creatures around. When Emily’s parents first adopted their pit bull, she was terrified of him. However, after she wrmed up to him, the two were inseperable and even take their afternoon naps together, all snuggled up on the couch.

Teaching Them How To Share

There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh laundry, but some garments need extra attention. When mom went to check up on the laundry basket, she found two strange things that didn’t belong there. Apparently, the puppies had found the freshly dried sheets to be a nice bed for a nap. Little Tommy learned that sharing is caring and they all feel peacefully asleep.

As Long As They’re Happy, Right?

As every parent knows, children are playful creatures! Unfortunately, that often means having to clean up after them more often than not and while they might be having the most fun in the world, someone has clean up eventually. Thankfully though, a picture or two helps to capture a moment that will most likely be a life-long memory for her parents, despite the daunting clean-up at hand. Looks like mom is going to have to make another trip to the grocery store too. But her, at least they’re happy!

Learning To Use Your Words?

Parents can have a hard time disciplining their children and as we all know, peer pressure can play a big role in determining the actions of children. While Amy’s parents tried to teach her to use her words to ask for food when she’s hungry, it seems she picked up on some non-verbal cues from her best friend. Now, when they’re hungry, they both stick out their tongues and beg.

Tongues Out


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?

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!

Don’t Scratch


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.

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.

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.
