According to Carter's mom, Devin Crouch, this adorable pair have been besties since before they even laid eyes on each other.
"While I was on bed rest," Crouch told Mashable, "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 OK." The bond that formed between her beloved pup and her growing belly continued once Carter was born, and is being captured (and aww'ed over) on Crouch's Instagram account, @carterandtoby, where she posts endlessly entertaining photos of the two for her 20,000+ followers.
Every day brings a new adventure.
Sometimes they nap …
… sometimes they play. (Or nap in the middle of playing.)
Other times, they just work on looking cool. (Not hard for these two.)
They're even inseparable at bath time.
They understand the importance of hugs.
And having a sense of humor.
And no matter what, they will always be there for each other.
