Little Carter has what everyone wishes they had as a kid: a real-life teddy bear in the form of an extremely affectionate and loving pup.
Toby, a rescue dog, is sweet and affectionate to the toddler. The pair are undoubtedly best friends and have been pretty much inseparable since before they ever even met.
"'This bond between them was evident to us even before Carter was born," owner and parent Devin Crouch told the Daily Mail. "While I was on bed rest, Toby, who was not allowed in our bedroom at the time, would sneak up and lay at the end of the bed to make sure I was okay."
Crouch is using Instagram to compile photos like a baby book for Carter when he gets older. In the meantime, more than 18,000 followers are enjoying their cute companionship.
