It must be one heck of a ride raising what are basically two infant children, but the mother of these cute little beasts, Ivette Ivans, has nothing but wonderful things to say.
Their days are pretty predictable: baby Dilan poops in his diaper, Farley the Frenchie poops behind the couch. Dilan cries when he’s hungry, Farley Bulldog-grumbles just for the heck of it. Dilan sleeps every couple of hours, and… well, Farley does that too. Right next to his brother.
When Ivans saw that Farley’s birthday was the same as her son’s, she says she “just knew it’s meant to be.” And if her amazing photographs are any evidence, the two tykes get along famously.
Take, for example, the morning’s breakfast escapades. At any mealtime, Farley knows exactly whose tiny fingers the food is most likely to slip through. He even “cleans up Dilan’s mess after he eats. [Farley] always licks Dilan’s neck if he is crying, so he starts laughing out loud.”
With full bellies and not nearly enough sleep the night before, the two settle down to sleep off their food comas. “I’m pretty sure Dilan thinks they’re both the same species,” says Ivans, “Farley patiently plays with him and tries not to snore while they both nap.”
Well… they try to sleep. There are too many exciting things going on. It’s hard, okay?
One 30-minute power nap later, these pawtners in crime are up ‘n at it again. Mom says, “My little Dilan is a chilled-out baby, and he’s always happy, but for some reason Farley really cracks him up. I love seeing them together.”
And then, after a long day of playing and snuggles, the two wash it all away in the best bath time EVER. When was the last time your dog and baby actually enjoyed a bath?!
“It’s honestly the most loving connection–pure, unconditional, irreplaceable and inseparable.” And we simply can’t get enough.
