1. Got Your Nose
When so many adults pull the "I got your nose" joke on you, it only makes sense to do pass it on to your favorite pup.
2. Stare Down
They may not speak our language just yet, but it's pretty obvious that these two cuties are having some intense conversation.
3. Eye To Eye
How can you resist humans and pups that are basically the same size? Actually, they look like they might be the same age as well.
4. Stop Crying
Don't worry, mamas. Even dogs don't understand those random temper tantrums, but they will try to soothe the baby just the same.
When your kid is so sweet that you can gobble him up, you'll probably end up with a photo like this one, especially if your pooch agrees with you.
6. Forehead Kisses
Forehead kisses are already cute, but when it's given to a dog by a baby, how can you not die a little inside?
Honestly, few things are cuter than a baby and dog napping together. And OMG they're practically holding paws/hands.
8. Eskimo Kisses
Nothing beats an Eskimo kiss from the one you love, especially when it's furry and has a wet nose.
10. Sloppy Kisses
Sometimes, you just have to focus on getting a big ol' sloppy and wet kiss from your other half.
11. Dog Pony
Who needs a rocking horse when you have a dog? It doesn't hurt that it is comfortable and does tricks, too.
13. More Smothering
Like I said, true love doesn't exist without a healthy dose of smothering. Extra points when you turn into a sandwich.
14. Feeling Cheeky
Something tells me this little one is an aspiring dentist. The dog, on the other hand, probably thinks — and hopes — otherwise.
15. Look Of Love
Nothing is better when you find a friend that you can see eye to eye with, especially if they're a tiny human or a tiny pup.
But seriously, why do some dogs have tongues that are half the size of their head? I can relate to this kid's confusion.
18. Dog Sofa
Who needs a pillow when they've got a trusty bulldog? When you're still a tiny human being, few things are comfier than a cuddly dog.
20. Sloppy Kiss
The more kisses, the better. It's a sign of true friendship, so keep 'em coming, pup.
Between the fluff and the cute, nearly bald baby, this photo is just too adorable for words.
Like I said, dogs make the most comfortable friends, and you can tell that this babe knows that she's found a keeper.
This precious little lady is basically all of us when we see a dog. The excitement is real, people.
