Baby & Bulldog Born On Same Day Think They’re Brothers And Do Everything Together

Dog’s are often called “man’s best friend,” but what about babies? When Chicago mother Ivette Ivens, 25, saw a French bulldog puppy that was born on the same day as her baby son Dilan, she knew it was a sign. “I saw Farley’s birth date and just knew it’s meant to be,” she told the Daily Mail.

Farley, the little bulldog pup, joined the family about five months ago and has been following around baby Dilan ever since. “I’m pretty sure Dilan thinks they’re both the same species, as they walk at the same level and are both going through the stage of chewing on everything.”

We recently featured Ivens and her breastfeeding photo series “I breastfeed my toddler,” which was exhibited in Chicago; later this year, she is releasing her photo-book, Breastfeeding Goddess. Ivens also specializes in family photography.

“I saw Farley’s birth date and just knew it’s meant to be”

“I’m pretty sure Dilan thinks they’re both the same species”

“Farley patiently plays with him and tries not to snore while they both nap”

“It’s honestly the most loving connection – pure, unconditional, irreplaceable and inseparable”

“Farley is very gentle and clumsy at times – we have to remember he is still only a baby, too”

“My little Dilan is a chilled-out baby and he’s always happy, but for some reason Farley really cracks him up. I love seeing them together”

“He cleans up Dilan’s mess after he eats, and always licks Dilan’s neck if he is crying, so he starts laughing out loud”

Dilan also enjoys spending time with the rest of his family

What is "weird" about a mother breast feeding? JFC - we have become plastic people.

The last photo disrupted the magic of true companionship and innocence. Photo essays can be deeply moving if the theme is maintained. In this case, the continuity between the Dilan and Farley is broken by the last photo.
