Could it get any cuter? A boy and his huge pet dog have become world renowned after mum started taking daily photos.

Photographer and blogger Stasha Becker has been photographing her son Julian and his dog Max to send to her naval officer husband when he is away, reported the Daily Mail.

Julian, who was born in the UK, features in each themed photo with Max, a 75 kilogram Newfoundland.

The pair had been together all day, every day, since Julian was born, said Becker.

The photos have helped her blog, called The good life: Little boy, big dog and I, become famous.

She said she could barely keep up with requests about her son and his best friend.

"From lovely comments on the articles to wonderful emails that have filled up my inbox, people from all over have been saying that my photos made them smile and think about the good in life," she wrote.

"As for the boys, they have no idea what is going on. They just keep indulging me in my quest to document our good life."

She said that although Julian started out camera shy, he warmed to it quickly and started directing the photoshoots himself.
