No one will ever feel your pain of being an older brother or sister unless they are one. And contrary to what they say, it’s not always that fun. The truth is, younger siblings are annoying little creatures who seem to get away with anything at all times, and older siblings, unfortunately, most of the time have to take responsibility for their younger siblings' pranks.

Being your younger sibling’s nanny is not a job most of us would enjoy, but an adorable golden retriever named Marshall was really excited about getting a furless baby sister from his human-parents. About 2 years ago, the family’s life was changed forever as they brought home a small baby girl named Macy, and since that day, Marshall wouldn’t leave her side, spending most of his time around Macy.

The cute siblings share their daily goofy adventures on their Instagram account, which have now captured the hearts of over 17 thousand people. Marshall and Macy’s parents share wholesome pictures with hilarious captions describing the pair’s daily shenanigans.

More info: Instagram

Bored Panda reached out to Marshall and Macy’s parents to inquire a bit more about the siblings. First, we wanted to know what Marshall’s first reaction was to seeing Macy.

“He suddenly went so gentle and calm and just wanted to sniff her, but also so excited to see me.”

Then, given the chance, we also asked Marshall and Macy’s parents about the reason as to why their children's bond was so special.

“Macy has calmed our boy Marshall down and there is nothing that makes the heart flutter like seeing them playing together.”

Looking after children is no easy feat, so we were curious to find out: out of the two of them, who is the bigger troublemaker?

“Macy... poor Marshall just wants to sleep sometimes and she just goes and annoys him.”

Do you have any funny stories to share about the two of them?

“I swear when it’s bedtime, they hype each other up! One time they ran back and forth from the lounge room 15 times and Macy was so overtired and delirious it was ridiculous.”

For one, it would seem that the two of them could get tired of each other, and Marshall and Macy’s parents definitely have some insights to share about this aspect as well.

“They aren’t constantly on top of each other, but when Marshall has had enough, he just gives me this look…. it’s hilarious, but we have never ever seen a vicious look from him. He just goes to our bedroom if he wants to be left alone. But now she can climb onto the bed, so it seems that Marshall might have to try and hide somehow better!”

We noticed that before Macy, Marshall’s Instagram account was just full of his pictures. Therefore, we wanted to know how the parents came up with the idea of having an Instagram account dedicated to both their daughter and their dog.

“There wasn’t much thought behind Marshall’s Instagram handle, to be honest. Especially since we are growing as a family, I believe the handle might change too. Who knows if it’s growing by 4 legs or 2 this time! It was also only Marshall's account until we went viral and everyone wanted more Macy and Marshall and I was totally okay with that!”
