When Ivette Ivens was thinking about getting a family pet, one bulldog that caught her eye had the birthday of May 26, 2014. The Chicago-based photographer took it as a sign. It was the same day her son, Dilan, was born after all.
Since the day she brought Farley home, Dilan and the French bulldog pup have been inseparable.
"He patiently plays with him and tries not to snore while they both nap. It's honestly the most loving connection -- pure, unconditional, irreplaceable and inseparable," Ivens told the Daily Mail. "I'm pretty sure Dilan thinks they're both the same species, as they walk at the same level and are both going through the stage of chewing on everything."
Ivens has documented every stage of their blossoming friendship and the resulting images are enough to make the coldest of hearts defrost a little. Take a look.
