Jessica Shyba, a blogger and photographer from Northern California, recently took her three children to the Santa Cruz SPCA to finally get the dog the family had wanted for so long. They chose a puppy they named Theo, and brought him home. Thus began a most adorable friendship between the tiny mutt and the family's smallest member, Beau.
Every afternoon when the 23-month-old toddler is put down for his nap, the 8-week old puppy cuddles up next to him for his own nap. Jessica starting taking photos of these precious moments, and posted them on her blog, MommasGoneCity. It soon transformed into a sweet, extensive photo series depicting "the most organic and beautiful friendship I have ever witnessed," she tells Huffington Post.
The series has sparked its own hashtag, #TheoandBeau, and an Instagram page followed by over 78,000 people. Take a look at some of the cutest photos starring the two sleepy companions.
