CALIFORNIA – Let sleeping dogs and little boys lie.

Check out these adorable snap shots of a tiny tot named Beau Shyba napping alongside his faithful companion Theo.

Beau’s mom-of-three, Jessica, says every time one gets sleepy the other decided to snuggle next to him.

She wrote on her “Momma’s Gone City” blog, how the family bought the 7-month-old mixed breed puppy earlier this month.

Three days in, she was rocking Beau to sleep when his “puppy brother” jumped up onto the bed and passed out, too.

“I was practically howling at the cuteness and nearly woke them both up,” she wrote.

She was pleasantly surprised when it happened the next day.

Jessica says Theo was found waiting outside the bedroom so he could join his new best friend for a rest.

“It is the most organic and beautiful relationship i have ever witnessed,” she added.

“When I hoist (Theo) onto our bed, he stumbles over Beau and plops right down on top of him. And there they sleep, entwined, for at least two hours.”

Something tells us these best friends for life are having sweet dreams.
