A mom's photos of her baby and puppy snuggled up for naps together every day are going viral. Warning: Extreme cuteness ahead.

New Mexico mom Jessica Shyba began posting the adorable pictures of her napping son Beau with puppy Theo with the hashtag #theoandbeau on her Instagram account, mommasgonecity, which now has north of 76,000 followers, and her blog of the same name.

The pictures have since been shared countless times, including on TV shows like “Good Morning American” and “The Today Show.” Shyba, along with the two photo stars, have been pulled along for the ride, the Santa Cruz Sentinel said.

All the attention — appearing on “Fox & Friends” and invites to be on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and others — has been a little overwhelming.

“I haven't eaten since yesterday," Shyba told the Sentinel. "I'm trying to find a connection with it. It doesn't feel real to me."

The sweet pictures of her 23-month-old napping beside Theo, an 8-week-old rescue puppy, started when Theo fussed and whined about sleeping by himself, Shyba told the Sentinel. He had lived with other puppies in a crate when they adopted him from the Santa Cruz SPCA, so Shyba and her husband, Justin, gave up and allowed him the freedom to roam.

He ended up cuddling with Beau, following the boy to his bed at naptime, Shyba told the Sentinel.

On her blog, she wrote, “The following day, Theo met us up in my room for the nap time ritual, and so began what I can only describe as the most organic and beautiful friendship I have ever witnessed.”

Shyba hopes to publish the photos in a book that will benefit the Santa Cruz shelter.

Meanwhile, the photos continue to flood the internet community, which remains awestruck.
