A Japanese photographer named Yasuto has melted the hearts of basically everyone on the internet after posting photos he took of his grandma with her beloved Shiba Inu while showcasing his favorite 135mm camera lens. It’s safe to say these are the sweetest, most adorable photos you’ll see today (and maybe ever again).

- This is what true love looks like. As we know, dogs aren’t just pets, they’re beloved members of the family. Studies have shown the positive impact animals can have in our lives, especially in the lives of senior citizens in terms of companionship and health-boosting abilities. Seeing this grandma and her Shiba Inu’s beautiful bond is a perfect illustration of those findings.
- They have fun in all seasons. Yasuto’s four photos show his grandma with her dog throughout the seasons, looking at one another with so much happiness as they’re surrounded by Japan’s beautiful natural surroundings. I can’t bear the cuteness!
- Shiba Inus are incredibly popular companion pets. Yasuto’s grandma has the right idea about choosing a Shiba Inu. The breed is one of Japan’s most popular, with a bold, outgoing personality that would bring a smile to anyone’s face. They’re incredibly good-natured and very loyal, which is all you can really ask for in a pet.
- These photos are a love letter to grandmas and dogs everywhere. Regardless of what breed of dog you have – it doesn’t have to be a Shiba Inu, of course – we can all appreciate just how precious it is to have a grandma and to have a pet by our side, loving us unconditionally and staying by our side throughout everything. Yasuto’s capturing of these beautiful moments between two precious people in their lives is a wonderful thing, and we’re so lucky he’s shared those images with all of us so we can appreciate them.
