These Two are Winning the Internet in their Sleep

By  | 

Last November, long-time blogger and mother of three, Jessica Shyba, visited an animal shelter with her kids in search of a puppy.

It was there, tucked between two siblings in the backyard of the Santa Cruz SPCA, that they saw him. Although the 7-week-old pup was the shyest of the group, he bounded instantly into her son Beau’s lap as soon as he entered their pen. They took Theo home that day.

After two days of crating—and crying—Theo decided to snuggle next to Beau during one of his afternoon naps and they’ve been napping together ever since. Posting portraits of the two napping on Instagram with the hashtag #theoandbeau was an instant hit and Shyba has seen her Instagram account explode in popularity as she approaches 315,000 followers at the time of this posting.

The surge in popularity has earned Shyba a book deal with Feiwel & Friends for two books featuring the duo. Bedtime for Theo and Beau, the first of the two volumes, is set to be published on February 4, 2015. [Source]
