Toddler Loves His Dog So Much He Thinks They're Brothers
From brushing their hair to reading a bedtime story, one little boy's connection with his pet dog goes further than most.
Their bond is so close that little Jenson Webster, two, from Hinkley, Leicester, sees his border collie mix dog Fenn as his brother - and mimics him in almost all aspects of life.
Jenson was born on 8 October 2017 - with Fenn being born just nine days later, on 17 October - and strangers are often in awe of their bond, as the pair are rarely seen apart.
The family initially decided to get Fenn as a companion to grow up alongside their son - but they never envisioned how close the two would become.
From playing fetch and completing tricks, Jenson's milestones were all met - even if they weren't the most traditional.
Stay at home mum, Laura Webster, 29, was even able to teach Fenn to crawl in order to show Jenson what to do - with Jenson crawling at seven months and then walking by eight.
Yet little Jenson was already showing he could keep up with his furry pal, listening to orders such as 'sit' and 'heel round' - as well as attempting to eat by himself - just like Fenn.
Astounded mum Laura remains amazed at their bond as it's continued to grow, and along with her teaching assistant partner, 30-year-old Tom Webster, the family believe that the bond between the two is unique.

Laura said: "They are, simply put, siblings - it's impossible not to love them and their amazing bond.
"Fenn and Jenson were born nine days apart and they've literally grown up together - Jenson is recognised as the leader, but he's decided to copy Fenn when he's been learning things.
"From eating food from the plate, just like Fenn would, he also joins him in learning tricks like sit, heel round."
She continued: "They do the morning and night routine together - if Jenson is having his hair brushed, ready for the day ahead, then Fenn has to have his done too.
"They'll brush their teeth together, watch TV together with Jenson lying on top of Fenn, and every walk you'll find Jenson there, right alongside Fenn.
"Jenson has no human siblings and Fenn became his substitute - they're best friends and completely inseparable."
Being so close does have its drawbacks - Laura often has to prevent Jenson from making friends with every dog he meets.
Laura added: "We know we can trust Fenn 100 percent, but we've had to make sure Jenson doesn't go running up to every dog, thinking they're all going to be like Fenn.
"What he and Fenn have is so unique and special, we know we're lucky to have it - our little boy really does have a furry sibling!"
