There’s straight science behind the bond that humans and animals share, but you don’t need a big ol’ book or someone with a Ph.D. to tell you that that bond is unbreakable (and seriously adorable). There’s a reason dog has long been called man’s best friend—and it goes all the way back to when dog was a puppy, and man was a baby. Behold! The cutest of cute puppies and babies totally in love with each other.
1. Crawl Like This!
OMG. This Frenchie’s tiny human friend is clearly trying to figure out how the whole crawling thing works, and he is bound and determined to teach his tiny human friend—even if they have to start with the Army crawl.
2. Theo & Evvie
Theo probably won over your heart when his naps with his human toddler-friend Beau went absolutely viral, but now there’s a new babe in town—Beau’s little sister, Evvie. Annnd it’s adorable all over again.
3. Finger-lickin’ Good
The bulldog’s all like “You’re so cute, I’m gonna eat you!”
This girl is the cutest for obvious reasons (I mean, just look at her!), but the way she’s looking at her furry friend? So much wonder. So much happiness.
5. So. Much. Energy.
This pup has so much love for this little boy, he can’t even contain himself. Like, if he doesn’t jump all over the place and give lots and lots of kisses, he might burst.
6. Sweet Golden
OK, so the baby looks a little bit caught off guard (like “Hey, I wasn’t ready!”), but the way that golden retriever is gazing at her? Hearts. Melting.
7. Kiss Attack
Being kissed incessantly by an adorable yellow lab is basically everything we’ve ever wanted and more. Hey kid, can we be you?
8. Bright Eyes
When we wake up from a nap, we look nothing like this girl, who is bright-eyed and clearly head-over-heels in love with her pup. Everyone should probably wake up to a pup like this one, obviously.
9. It Takes Two
Holy. Sweetness. Two puppies crawling all over an adorable little boy is already the best thing ever, but when the adorable little boy tries to basically eat them (cute aggression is real, guys), it’s all over.
10. Pug Love
A pug in a blanket. SO much better than a pig in a blanket.
