Like humans, puppies can seem like the cutest things on earth when they take their first wobbly steps.
However, as this comedic collection of dog related snaps show, they don’t stay that size for very long.
Owners have been taking to Twitter to show the dramatic differences in their pet pooches when adulthood transforms them – often in just a few months.
@Munoz0702, who is based in the US, began the thread after he posted a tweet saying: ‘Messaging that lady on Craigslist was the best decision of my life. Happy 1st birthday to my girl!’
He then proceeded to show just how much his pet had changed in a year, leaving him holding with just one hand to barely being able to carry him with two.
