Growing up as an only child can be lonely sometimes. While Julian, or Little J, as his mother likes to call him, definitely keeps himself busy with his extracurricular activities — he’s a ballet dancer and violinist — our guess is he wouldn’t call himself an only child at all. That’s because of a few very special friends he hangs out with on a daily basis…
Here’s Julian with his mastiff buds, Bruce (left) and Max (right).
His photographer mom, Stasha Becker, captures the heartwarming relationship between the dogs and her son.
They’ve also got some equestrian friends, who round out the crew.
The fur family lives in the Pacific Northwest, which means there’s no shortage of beautiful scenery to explore.
It must be really cool to have two giant pooches as your best friends.
There’s always something to be excited about!
Becker is great at catching the little moments.
She manages to show that they’re truly a band of merry brothers.
Sometimes they just chill.
Did we mention the mini horses?
On second thought, are we sure they’re not just mastiffs, too?
This is one lucky kid.
These are the best kind of siblings you could ask for!
Snacks, skateboarding, and a big bro is all you really need in life.
There’s no bond like that between a boy and his (albeit slobbery) dog.
These guys have got it made.
Make sure you follow Becker on Instagram for more adventures with her whole happy family. You can also head over to her website for more in-depth updates!
