The friendship that a child forms with a pet is lovely to see and it's even more heartwarming when that child is fully grown and loves their furry pal more than ever.

1. Same girl, same dog, same t-shirt

This girl has grown and her now senior pup has been by her side the whole time. How she still fits into that t-shirt though is anyone’s guess...

2. This boy who can’t lift his dog quite as easily as he once did

From tiny pup to fully grown, Golden Retrievers grow A LOT, as shown by these adorable pics - the dog may be too big to be lifted but he's just as happy to be with his boy.

3. From girl to boy and the pup is always by his side

Dogs love us unconditionally and forever and gender is irrelevant for doggos this good.

4. Same dog, same boy, same tartan couch?

A lot can happen in 16 years but some things never change (including the couch in this case).

5. 17 years apart, same bond

From a pair of little pups, these girls both grew big and strong and their bond is as special as ever.

6. Tiny kitten to plus-size cat

This tiny kitten did some serious growing in ten years and by her side throughout it all was her best human friend.

7. From teeniest pup to all grown up

This gorgeous Springer Spaniel has grown a lot in nine years but she’s just as photogenic as ever.

8. A lot can change in a decade

The young boy in the photo is virtually unrecognisable after ten years of growing, his best friend and the bond the two share though is unmistakable.
