1Got 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.

2Stare Down

They may not speak our language just yet, but it's pretty obvious that these two cuties are having some intense conversation.

3Eye 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.

4Stop 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.

6Forehead 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.

8Eskimo Kisses

Nothing beats an Eskimo kiss from the one you love, especially when it's furry and has a wet nose.


If you don't smother each other, does the love even really exist?

13More Smothering

Like I said, true love doesn't exist without a healthy dose of smothering. Extra points when you turn into a sandwich.

14Feeling Cheeky

Something tells me this little one is an aspiring dentist. The dog, on the other hand, probably thinks — and hopes — otherwise.

15Look 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.

17Couch Potoates

Watching television just isn't the same without your best friend by your side.

18Dog 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.

I can't handle all of this sleepy cuteness.

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.

23New Friends

Fact: Baby humans and dogs are really just meant to be together.


Like I said, dogs make the most comfortable friends, and you can tell that this babe knows that she's found a keeper.
