Meet 2-year-old Jaxon and Ludo, a kid and his devoted dog who are essentially attached at the hip. In fact, they haven’t been separated for even a single day.

Tia Laycock, the mother of Jaxon and Ludo, told The Dodo that Jaxon has never experienced life without Ludo. Since the beginning, they have never been apart.

And it manifests.

Jaxon and Ludo are frequently seen engaging in games or having mini-adventures during the day. Both of them must be present wherever one of them is.

But when it’s time to go to bed at night, Jaxon and Ludo’s connection is even more obvious.

Jaxon moved into his own bedroom when he was old enough to sleep soundly by himself. Laycock made the decision to install a nanny cam there to keep an eye on him. She soon learned, though, that she wasn’t the only one doing this.

The video caught Ludo walking into Jaxon’s room repeatedly throughout the night to make sure his favorite young child was comfortable and secure. Every night, he performs it.

Here is a video of Ludo visiting Jaxon on multiple occasions, frequently cuddling up next to his bed to sleep:

Laycock found the dog’s display of affection to be moving. She also constantly keeps a tight check on Jaxon and sees this nightly ritual with Ludo.

She remarked, “It’s really nice to see him perform, especially since it’s not something he’s been trained to do. “He handles things himself.”

Ludo is obviously motivated by love.

Jaxon is in capable paws and hands. His connection with Ludo will undoubtedly endure forever.

Knowing that the dog is so dedicated helps their mother sleep a little better.

Laycock remarked, “It’s amazing seeing the bond they both share.”  “And it’s wonderful to think that we’d have that extra set of eyes to alert us if something were to happen in the night.”
