Growing up with a dog is truly amazing, especially when the bond between the human and the pooch extends through childhood to adolescence and adulthood. These four-legged friends have always been there for you: your first day at school, first heartbreak, applying to college...

In celebration of this, Bored Panda has created the most heartwarming before-and-after pictures showing people with their dogs. Although the physical appearance changes, these photos prove that love and friendship are timeless.

Are you someone who grew up with a dog? Submit a picture below and share the 'now and then' cuteness with Bored Panda readers!
