Dog is man’s best friend, and true best friends last a lifetime.
I think growing up with pets is a wonderful experience. The loyalty and unconditional affection you experience with your furry family members can do wonders as you grow and find your place in the world.
If you’ve had the privilege of having that experience for yourself, these photos will surely resonate with you.
Below are ten photos of dogs and their beloved owners growing up together. Though they have changed in size and shape, their friendship remains as strong as ever.
1. True friends then and now.
Both their fur coats have stayed sleek and shiny as well.
2. Till death do us part…
These photos capture both this boy’s first encounter with his lifetime friend and, sadly, his last encounter. However, their love for one another is eternal.
3. Never too old for kisses from your best friend.
Houses may change, but those big eyes looking down at you will not.
4. Like it was just yesterday.
These two haven’t changed one bit – except for that distinct mark on his chest. But hey, the background of the photos look similar.
5. Look at that smile!
Her enthusiasm hasn’t changed, but her pup’s has over the years! Nothing but happy grins all around!
6. On all fours.
Gotta love the fact that he recreated his initial pose. His dog is right at home in his arms.
7. 7 years already…
Time flies when you’re having fun.
8. Forever treasured memories.
These two stayed together through the good and the bad. Both of their lives wouldn’t be the same without each other.
9. From babysitter to protector.
But always there, acting as a guardian angel for her little human.
10. From birth and beyond.
I wonder how this dog felt about watching this little furless baby grow into a young man. Either way, their bond is timeless.
I don’t know about you, but I’d like to go and hug my pets right about now. They really are a gift to have.
