Dogs may have been given the title of “man’s best friend.” But anyone who has ever seen the special bond between dogs and children knows that “kid’s best friend” may be more accurate. Whether they’re dressing alike, exploring together, or just hanging out and playing, dogs and kids seem to understand each other on another level. There’s a happy innocence both dogs and children share that somehow shines even more brightly when they’re together. And seeing pictures of this bond can be truly heart melting.
Here are several moments that highlight kids and their best dog friends. Each one shows that, just like the personalities involved, every bond is unique, special and absolutely adorable.
