And they call it puppy love! There's no other term for it when you see the amazing bond between baby Beau and his seven-week-old puppy pal Theo.
The touching photos were taken by mum Jessica Shyba who, after trying to 'crate-train' the new dog she and her husband had bought for their three children, couldn't bear to leave Theo on his own.
The second he was allowed into the couple's room, he jumped onto their bed for a cuddle with Beau while he was having his afternoon nap.
The pup loved it so much, he now climbs up to be with Beau every day.
