PHOTOS: Toddler and Puppy Naptime Is Too Cute to Handle

When you do a Google search for “photos toddler and puppy” — which we have, because on the grand scale of cuteness, puppies and babies are at the top and can make our hearts melt no matter what foul mood we’re in — you better hope this cute pairing shows up in your results.

Blogger Jessica Shyba began posting photos of her son Beau and their recently adopted 2-month-old puppy Theo on Instagram last year, and when they did it’s no surprise that these pictures instantly went viral.

As the story goes, ever since Beau and Theo shared their first nap together on Theo’s third day as part of the family, the precious pair have not stopped snuggling. Since that moment, every day Theo waits for Beau to fall asleep and then joins him for his routine snooze. And Shyba is there to snap a photo for the rest of us.

“And so began,” Shyba says, “the most organic and beautiful friendship I have ever witnessed.”

These photos of Theo and Beau are almost too much cuteness to handle. Consider yourself fairly warned.
