If you are, like this dog, the one to believe in Calvin and Hobbes or enamoured of the teddy bear king Ted, you’d have surely wondered how it would be to hang out as your dog’s sidekick?
Photographer Christopher Cline also thought on the same lines and dedicated a photo series to show the gigantic role his dog, Juji (pronounced Joo-ji), plays in his life.
Photographer’s little dog (or shall we say huge) has got the internet talking about these cute pictures!
Christoper met his Golden doodle Juji a few years ago when he was experiencing homesickness. Although Juji is about 2 feet tall, Cline photo-shopped each of the images in the series as if they drank the magic potion from Alice in Wonderland!
Life is like a see-saw ride full of ups and downs. But when you are down a good friend will jump on the other seat to bring you back up again.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” — Marcel Proust
“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.” — A.A. Milne
My dog does this amazing thing where he just existsand makes my whole life better because of it!
Pristine as the river, I believe she’s named after, Kaveri has so often helped this dog when it comes to spreading adoption updates. Not only this, but she rescues in hoards and across species – guinea pigs, cats, dogs… humans 🙂
Here, we have Pebble And Beetle at their aww-worthy best!
I feel your head resting heavy on your single bed I want to hear all about it, get it all off your chest I feel the tears and you’re not alone When I hold you well I won’t let go Why should we care for what they’re selling us anyway We’re so young girl and you know.
10. ‘Tuney mari entriyaan, dil mein baji ghantiyaan’― Gunday
Divya’s best bud ‘Saawan’ is a Bollywood buff and since he’s happiest on everyone’s arrival, his song exudes the same excitement for the doorbell!
11. ‘The Bare Necessities’ ― Jungle Book
Having rescued 8 dogs, Dhruv knows that the simple joys of life are all that matter. A fan of The Jungle Book, he even has a mutt named Baloo.
Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife I mean the bare necessities Old Mother Nature’s recipes That brings the bare necessities of life.
12. ‘My Best Friend’― Weezer
Sandhya Gola and her brother, the sibling team which feeds their canine neighbours, believe that Weezer’s My Best Friend is the apt song that describes their bond with the dogs.
There is no other one that can take your place I feel happy inside when I see your face I hope you believe me Because I speak sincerely and I mean it when I tell you I need you. You are my best friend and I love you, and I love you Yes I do.
13. ‘Army Of One‘― Coldplay
When we asked Deepthi which song would it be if her dog could sing, it was Coldplay’s latest album.
So I never say die Aim never untrue I’m never so high as when I’m with you And there isn’t a fire that I wouldn’t walk through My army of one is gonna fight for you.
14. ‘Where Are You Going?‘― Dave Matthews Band
https://www.instagram.com/p/BhHnSPMjF69/?taken-by=dogwith_blog Where are you going, Where do you go. Are you looking for answers, To questions, under the stars Well, if along the way, You are grown weary, You can rest with me Until a brighter day When you ok.
I am no superman, I have no answers for you. I am no hero, And that’s for sure. But I know one thing, That’s where you are, is where I belong. I do know Where you go, Is where I want to be.
15. ‘Set The Fire To The Third Bar’ ― Snow Patrol
And miles from where you are I lay down on the cold ground And I, I pray that something picks me up And sets me down in your warm arms And miles from where you are I lay down on the cold ground And I, I pray that something picks me up And sets me down in your warm arms
Over to you, which song would it be if your dog could sing?
Why do you want a puppy, not a baby? Puppies become dogs. Dogs are fun. But, so are the babies. Babies become people. People are dumb.
Some of the questions that haunt us aren’t a device of our making, but that of the world. Consider this ― When are you getting married? and god forbid, if you are married, When are you expecting a baby?
What about the questions that matter, something on the lines of Mary Oliver – what one wants to do with his or her wild and precious life?
Like the other deeply conflicting debate: Which came first, egg or the chickenHumans these days are choosing puppy or baby (that is when they can’t have both). From Italy to the USA, the birth rate hit an all-time low. The stats were so staggering that even Pope Francis publicly warned married couples against substituting pets for children. He also suggested that such couples have been too strongly influenced by a “culture of well-being” which promotes the idea that life is more enjoyable without kids.
This dog isn’t suggesting that a puppy is a replacement for a baby, but shouldn’t we leave this choice to pet parents? Why drag religion into it? For pet parents treat their dogs like babies. Furthermore, what about the countries where the population growth rate is still far from under control, I am all for having dogs, provided you adopt them.
Scientific research has also led to conclusive evidence that dogs and babies share some common traits. Japanese scientists have found that the “mutual gaze” between dogs and their owners stimulates the same bonding process (release of oxytocin) that occurs between the mother and child. While Researchers in Hungary concluded a study that shows that dogs respond to eye contact and verbal and nonverbal cues from humans similarly as a human baby would. So for all of you out there who say your dog is like your baby, you may be more right than you thought!
“My husband and I are either going to buy a dog or have a child. We can’t decide whether to ruin our carpet or ruin our lives.”
— Rita Rudner
Still having doubts?
Okay, good luck with diaper changes and tantrums, I would rather have my doggy ‘kid’.
