Baby's best friend! Hoda's dog Blake and Haley Joy are pals

Hoda Kotb's newborn girl Haley Joy is making friends all over the place!

She's had lots of visits from TODAY anchors ever since Kotb adopted her in February, and everyone has instantly bonded with the adorable newcomer.

That now apparently includes the family pet, Blake!

Guard dog! Good boy @blakeshelton !!!!

As Kotb showed in a photo posted on social media Friday, Blake takes his job seriously as a pup who watches over all members of the family — and as Haley's newest BFF.

He's certainly in the right place for it; one of the best places to find Haley these days is on her floor play mat, underneath a mobile of animals, catching some shut-eye.

Of course, she's just as happy to be picked up and held by smiling visitors:

Blake (who yes, was named after Kotb's favorite musician ever ever ever Blake Shelton), came into the family first, when Kotb brought him home in 2013.

It's so great when siblings get along!

Meanwhile, Haley's also developing fans she hasn't even met yet (we think)! Country music act Little Big Town sent this adorable outfit for the little one Friday:

We sense another photo coming our way soon when Haley gets into her new duds!
