Then and Now: Cute Photos of Pets Growing Up

Pets and people share a truly special bond when they grow up together. Because of their shorter lifespans, dogs, cats and other domestic animals tend to grow out of their juvenile forms relatively quickly. In a few months, that cute and doofy puppy that’s tripping all over himself will be galloping between your legs enthusiastically, and in a few more months, he or she will be approaching their adult size already. So let’s celebrate their short (but loving and meaningful) lives by checking out these cool images of them growing up!
