If you’ve ever had a puppy, you know very well that they get attached to you. VERY attached. Take young Axl here, who would follow his owner everywhere, even to the bathroom.

Imgur user rayzer12 brought Axl home aged just 7.5 weeks, and first took a photo of the pup curled cutely in a quite unlikely place, the gusset of his underpants.

This seemed to become a tradition. As Axl continued to follow his human to toilet breaks, rayzer12 would take a photo of the lavatory Labrador nestled in his pants. Through this bizarre routine we get to see Axl mature, gradually outgrowing the underpants, then the pants, until there is just no space for Axl under the toilet at all!

Scroll down below to watch Axl’s growth timeline from the unusual viewpoint of crapper-cam, and feel free to add your own pupper pics in the comments!

“Axl, about 5 days after we took him home (7.5 weeks). His full name is Axl Riley, Axl was born on 9/11 so his middle name is in tribute to one of the many rescue dogs that worked at ground zero”
