These dogs are so cute. Who would have thought that they will grow that big
On estimate, there are about 70-80 million dogs owned by families in the United States alone. That is an approximate 37-47% of all households owning dogs in the country. But these friendly canines are not only limited for their domestic uses. Some dogs are commonly used for therapy, offering much needed affection and comfort to those people in hospitals, retirement homes and people in distressed areas or those with disabilities.
Additionally, there are dogs that play a vital role in safeguarding the community, like those K9 security dogs, we usually find in malls. Others are even working in the military, assisting the army. There is no question that dogs have been a great part of our daily lives and that these adorable pets are a man’s best friend.
Although most of us tend to outlive our dogs, the short period of time that we share with them will always be full of fun and pleasant memories. Because unlike any other pets, dogs will always be special in the way they love to be around their owners all the time, like sitting with them on the couch and sleeping with them at night.
1 Teaser First!
Dog’s mindset is directed only to pleasing their owners, and their compassionate attitude goes a long way in forming a truly special bond with them- that is, aside from the fact that just recently, scientists have found surges of a certain hormone responsible for maternal caring called oxytocin on both dogs and owners when they look into each other’s eyes!
As a dog owner, you’ve probably wished you can have your pets for a longer period of time- if not forever- as you watch them grow surprisingly fast in a few short months. So, with that in mind, you take all sorts of photos with them as a means of treasuring your memories together. Here are some of the photos of pets growing up with their owners.
2 This Very Big Golden Retriever
You can fit almost 10 more golden retrievers on this bed with his size a year ago, but now, look at how adorable the pooch fits on the whole thing! He was very small back then, like he can only manage to cover up the corner of the bed, but now, and in the years to come, it will be surely impossible for him to fit on it. Maybe, the owner needs to buy a new one – a bigger bed that could fit him in!
3 The Trio
Who says dogs are only man’s best friend? This trio grew up to be best of friends from childhood to adulthood. This photo has been widely spread all over the internet and had captured the heard of a lot of dog lovers. This shows the three Labradors who grew up together and they come with different colors. I totally wonder what could be their name. Maybe, it is Choco, Mocha and Black? Just Kidding.
4 Long Lasting Friendship
Well, this little pup decided to cross species boundary when he formed a long-lasting friendship with this bunny when they were just young. Aside from the fact that he totally gone big over the years, it was undeniably cute to know that he is still friends with this cute little black bunny. I think most of the dogs will run after bunnies, and not consider befriending them so this is totally unique!
5 They Both Grow Beautiful
Both the owner and her dog have grown beautifully as evident in these before and after photo of them. It was always a nice thing for you to have a dog when you are still a kid, but it surely a great thing to know if you can still have until you grew up. Surely, there is a lot of memories shared that you will never forget in your life.
6 He’s so BIG!
This girl found herself an awesome cuddling buddy! Look at this! The owner is like holding the dog with her two hands which he surely fit perfectly. But, who would have thought that he is going to grow as big as that? Surely, no one. The owner can’t even manage to carry him because of his size and I just hope that he’ll be healthy and will stay with his owner for a lifetime.
7 Sisters with Their Dog
These sisters marvelously reinvented their childhood photo with their dog eleven years later! You know, it become a trend in the internet to reinvented childhood photos as gift for their parents, but these sisters chosen one with their lovely pet. Surely, he is already a part of the family and was treated perfectly.
8 Meet Lily
This pooch named Lily has grown to be a stunning Spaniel. She was really cute when she is small and trying to reach out in the trunk, but now, she can already stand up on it perfectly. She has grown to be a very beautiful dog. His ears had grown longer which is a good match to her long fur that covers up her body.
9 Chico 14 Years Later
Chico is still rocking it with her owner two years later. Look at that happy dog smile! Chico has been a very good pet, and had followed her owner for most of their adventures. It has been 14 years already and there is no doubt that he had grown to be a very strong dog and will protect his owner by any means! I bet that his owner could not even manage to carry him because he is already big, compared to his small and petite younger body in the other picture.
