Baby Has Been Friends With Goldendoodle Pups Since He Was One Week Old
We all love a goldendoodle, right? And none more so this six-month-old baby, who has formed a bond with one pup that has captured the hearts of thousands.
'What's a goldendoodle?' I hear some of you ask. It's a crossbred dog - golden retriever crossed with a poodle, and one such pooch named Samson has formed an adorable relationship with a human baby named Theo.
Not cuted out yet? OK, how about if I tell you the duo are regularly caught cuddling up together on camera? Feast your eyes on this snap for starters:
Theo's mum Jessica, who hails from from Westport in Connecticut, US, is the brains behind an Instagram account dedicated to six-year-old Samson.
He's since racked up an impressive 705,000 followers - well, you would follow it, wouldn't you?
Samson isn't the only goldendoodle in Jessica's care, either. She's also mum to Charley and Shea, who are just one year old and were born in the same litter.
Theo has become fast friends with the pups, forming an incredible bond with them.

Jessica said: "It's amazing to see Theo's relationship with the dogs evolve; pretty soon, Theo will be sneaking them treats.
"In the past month or so, Theo's really started to pet and rub them and become more aware of their presence which has been sweet to watch.
"People always joke that Theo is going to think he's a dog too. I truly believe from the beginning he has felt the calming presence of the dogs.

"When he was just one week old, I put him in the middle of them and he beamed.
"He's a very calm and chilled-out baby; obviously it's partly just genetic and his personality but I really think the dogs have helped.
"My main goal with Samson's account was always to spread joy and bring laughs and smiles. I didn't realise adding a baby to the mix would bring so much more attention but what is more pure than the bond between a baby and a dog".
