New parents love nothing more than uploading pics of their cute babies onto social media, and who can blame them? I get weird feelings of pride from a particularly well-formed booger or the contents of a pimple, so if I'd somehow managed to create a whole new human being, I'd want to show it off too.

But anyone can take a simple photo, can't they? When Nate Anderson's first child Rowan came along, he decided to take it a step further and chronicle his childhood in webcomics which he called simply 'Boy & Dog.'

We already featured Rowan and his Golden Retriever Buddy Murphy's adventures on Bored Panda before, but we loved the funny comics about these best friends so much that we have decided to check out the latest in the series. Scroll down below to check out the adorable friendship between a toddler boy and a funny dog and see what they've been up to!

Anderson told Bored Panda the idea for the comic strip came after the birth of his son last year. "My life was changed by this wiggly, squishy boy that filled my home with laughter and poop. The animals didn't know what to think of him at first, but my Golden Retriever, Murphy, decided that he was pretty cool," he said, "Rowan loves the dog and would squeal with delight whenever Murphy was around him. I started to draw the comics to show what I imagined in my head was transpiring between them."

His Boy & Dog comics are based the conversations, situations and even some crude jokes between dog and baby. "Everything is new for the boy, and I imagined that it was the dog's duty to teach him all about the world from a dog's point of view," Anderson explained.

This is not the artist's first time trying his hand at a webcomic. Anderson's first series was called "Quackyboys" and featured him and his college roommates having "wacky adventures," but eventually died off when they moved on. A college drop-out after freshman year, he said he is largely self-taught, "I was already working as a professional Illustrator/Designer at the time, and I feel that I learned more working in the industry than I ever did in school with very uninspiring instructors."

While his comics are quite eccentric, Anderson admitted he's not very good at talking to people and uses his talent to communicate, "My comics give me the ability to tell funny stories and make people laugh with silly gags. I like making people happy. I like making people laugh. Unfortunately, I'm a little socially awkward so this is a better platform for my jokes."

Inspired by artist Glen Keane, he said he loves traditional hand-drawn animation, "I am a huge Disney nerd and when I get into a slump, watching one of the movies he worked on gets me drawing again. Disney's Tarzan has been a huge influence in my desire to animate." As for his own work, he creates each comic entirely on Photoshop from rough layout, sketching, linework, coloring, and dialog.

For Anderson, his overall goal is to spread some laughter and joy to his viewers, "I know I'm not the only one who deals with baby problems and dog problems, so if I can get people to relate to my goofy drawings and have a chuckle then I will consider myself successful."

New comic strips for Dog & Baby are released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on his website.
