Some family dogs have a hard time adjusting to a small child or a new baby, but others can quickly become the watchful protector of their tiny human friends. These two probably already have a special relationship judging by how they keep a right eye on each other.
Someday soon, these friends will be able to go on many adventures, but for right now, they simply enjoy being side-by-side.
Keeping It Cool
This little guy and his four-legged friend share some fun in the sun by cooling off in the sprinkler. Spending time outside is refreshing for the soul, and animals know this too!
In fact, one of the few times we lose their attention is when they explore the outdoors! However, these friends are tied together and even have the same expression on their faces as they cool off in the summer heat.
One of the ways kids and pets can relate is how they don’t always like bath time! In some cases, kids (and pets) do enjoy being in the water, which only makes being together that much more fun, especially during bath time.
Usually, dogs will follow you anywhere and everywhere; their world is you, even when you’re in the bathroom. Combine that loyalty with curiosity with love for the water, and you get the two buddies in this photo!
This baby had a fun Christmas surprise under the tree! The kitten, on the other hand, looks like he is ready to find somewhere else to explore.
While dogs are usually known to be the more patient and tolerant pets, cats can also learn to be patient with children, and hopefully, this kitten will learn fast. No doubt, as these two grow together, they will become the best playmates.
Big dogs can make the best family pets and are sometimes a perfect resting place for kids! When this toddler leaned back into her big, furry best friend, she knew he wouldn’t mind supporting her.
Dogs can sometimes be more patient with kids and willing to let them do things that they may not let other people do. This little girl knows that, no matter what, she will always have someone to lean on.
