This Adorable Love Story Between 5- Year-Old Boy And His Dog Has An Important Message
If you ever need proof that dog is man's best friend, look no further than Instagram page of Reagan the labradoodle and "Little Buddy"—his family's foster child—who do everything together. Reagan was adopted by Oregon resident Sandi Swiridoff when he was just 11 months old. Swiridoff was overjoyed when the puppy—a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle—instantly hit it off with another special 11-month-old: her foster grandchild. From snuggling in bed and throwing miniature pajama parties to strolling outside and lounging by the lake, the duo does everything together—and, with their matching clothes and costumes, they do it in style. Understandably overwhelmed with cuteness, Swiridoff began documenting their heartwarming bond on her Instagram page, Reagandoodle. Now, five years later, the account has over 490,000 followers. Its popularity has also given way to an Etsy shop, where Swiridoff will be selling her still-in-progress picture book about Reagan's relationship with Little Buddy. The book is set to bring attention to the the importance of foster care, and proceeds will benefit Foster Parents' Night Out, a non-profit organization.
