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.
Baby & the Gentle Giant
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.
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.
A Moment Among Friends
Mimicry is a big part of the family pet and child relationship. The same curiosity and playfulness that follows children also follow animals. Maybe that’s why they often get along so well and why there is so much affection between them. Having a pet not only teaches kids responsibility and how to care for another life, but pets also show them how to give and receive love unconditionally.
In fact, the unconditional love a child experiences from their pets can create some of the most meaningful childhood memories that can carry into adulthood. There is no doubt that pets make a valuable impact on our lives.
The Sweetest Baby & Their Cuddly Pug
Maybe they sense the innocence or helplessness, but many dogs bond to a baby even before he or she is born. Though a new baby is a big adjustment for a pet, often, the baby can become their new best friend.
After all, babies are closer in size and at home more often, which can create a more natural bond. The family dog in this picture looks like he's hanging out in his favorite place on earth, just being with his little human. This baby and his cuddly pug look like they will be close for years to come!
