Man’s best friend – Instagram is full of hashtags. And of course, the social media site doesn’t lack adorable photos of dogs and their ostentatious owners sharing a bunch of pictures.
There are plenty of pages on Instagram where dogs and their owners go on adventures together. And there are others who like to match their clothes with their pets. And there’s one page where Reagan labradoodle and his “Little Friend” – a foster child of the family – who do both!
Oregon resident Sandi Swiridoff adopted Reagan when he was just 11 months old. Sandi was very happy that Reagan – a crossbreed of Labrador Retrievers and Poodles – immediately formed a relationship with another 11-month-old: her adopted grandson.
“There was that instant bond,” Sandi said to NBC News. “They just loved each other from day one.”
The couple are inseparable and love to do everything together, including cuddling in bed, partying pajamas and hanging out outside by the lake. And the two of them have quite a sense of style, often wearing the same clothes or even costumes together.
Overcome with how cute the pair are, Sandi began to document the adorable bond between Regan and “Little Buddy” on the Instagram page, Reagandoodle.
Two years later, her account grew to 125,000 followers. The rise in popularity has also paved the way for the Etsy store where Sandi plans to sell a picture book that is still ongoing and which talks about Reagan’s relationship with Little Buddy.
The book’s intention is to bring awareness to the importance of foster care. All proceeds will be donated to Foster Parents’ Night Out, which is a non-profit organization.
“I feel like it’s a story that needs to be told in addition to cute pictures,” she explained. “The good that they’ve been able to do for each other, and for foster kids everywhere.”
The book won’t be introduced until next year, however, a Reagan-themed calendar is available in the meantime.
