Pets and people share a very special bond when they grow up together, which is why we’ve compiled a list of pictures of people and their pets growing up and sometimes growing old 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 months more he or she will be approaching their adult size. Their growing bodies and maturity help put the changes in our own lives into perspective as well. It also helps us appreciate the fact that they spend their lives by our sides as our faithful companions.
Their shorter lifespans also mean that our beloved pets will invariably become a beautiful lesson in both love and loss. Watching your furry childhood friend grow old and die is a harrowing and sorrowful but also natural and potentially enlightening part of life. Of course, that might not be the case for the guy with the tortoise – although their lives are drastically shorter in captivity, a pet that can live for a century or more certainly has a chance to outlive its owner.
So let’s celebrate our pets’ short but loving and meaningful lives by checking out these cool images of them growing up!

Fluffy Chicken Saved From Laboratory Becomes Best Friends With Abandoned Two-legged Chihuahua
These two adorable and unlikely animal friends, Penny the chicken and Roo the two-legged Chihuahua, met each other through Alicia Williams, who works at Duluth Animal Hospital in the U.S. She saved both animals from almost certain death.
Roo was found in a ditch by the side of the road. Because he was found missing two legs, it was suspected that he had been born deformed at a backyard puppy breeder’s home and was abandoned because it would have been difficult to sell him. Penny, a silkie chicken, had been rescued from a laboratory that otherwise would have put her down. “She was an experimental chicken in the program and she had run the course of the experiment, so that was it for her,” Williams told the Gwinnett Daily Post. “I asked if I could have her instead of them doing anything with her. I brought her home.”
The two have developed liking for each other and spend a lot of time together. The animal hospital has taken to publishing the two pals’ antics on their Facebook page, attracting a great deal of attention from animal lovers around the world. Williams even says that clients have scheduled their visits around Penny and Roo’s schedules.
