20 Utterly Touching Before-and-After Photos of Pets Growing up with Their Owners

When people grow up together with their pets, they share especially strong bonds of friendship and love. You’re changing, and your pet is changing with you. Once upon a time this little ball of fur would sleep on your pillow, and now the two of you can hardly fit in the same bed.

Today, we at Bright Side would like to take a stroll down memory lane with this collection of cute amateur photos of pets and their owners before and after they both grew up. We’re sure that they’ll make you appreciate even more every moment you spend with your four-legged friend!
