We've been 'awww'-ing a lot lately since we happened upon Aya Sakai’s Instagram account documenting days in the lives of her little boy and his best friend (and snuggle buddy), a French bulldog. Their everyday antics, which include lots of cuddling, playing with picture books and catching up on the tube, have garnered the twosome over 73,000 followers. And they’re not the only toddler-animal duo taking the interwebs by storm.
