This is what they call puppy love: Meet Beau and his doggie pal Theo

BE prepared to have your heart melted with these pics of a seven week old puppy sleeping with baby Beau.
The photos taken by mum Jessica Shyba of her baby son Beau napping with the family's new pet Theo, have gone viral after she posted them on the internet.
Jessica, who is based in California, has told how every time she put her 23-month-old son Beau down for his nap, "Theo would come over and plop down on top of him and they sleep for a minimum of two hours together."
The mum describes the daily naps that she has photographed for her Instagram account as: "The most organic and beautiful friendship I have ever witnessed."
Jessica writes on her blog Mommas Gone City: "Each day, Theo meets us at naptime and waits patiently for Beau to fall asleep. By that time, he’s also sleepy, so when I hoist him onto our bed, he stumbles over to Beau and plops right down on top of him. And there they sleep, entwined, for at least two hours."
The photos have now gone viral with the hashtag #TheoandBeau. Mum Jessica is now hoping to compile the photos into a book with the proceeds donated to the Santa Cruz SPCA where Theo came from.
