15 Heartwarming Photos of Little Kids and Their BIG Dogs

by Elana

I have a big dog and a couple of little kids and I can assure you that there are few things in the universe more adorable than watching them bond. Andy Seliverstoff is a 58 year-old photographer who created the series, appropriately named, "Little Kids and Their Big Dogs." Andy said he spent four months taking thousands of pictures in St. Petersberg and then hand picked his favorites to release in a book.

Andy's incredible photographs are rich with the personalities of the enormous dogs and the little children while clearly emphasizing what a special bond exists in each unique relationship. There are few things in this world as precious as the child-animal bond and his images capture it so perfectly we felt compelled to handpick the best of the best and share them with you.
