There's no love quite like that between a boy and his dog. Or a girl and her dog for that matter, either.
For proof, look no further than the portraits 19-year-old Alicja Zmyslowska takes of dogs in her native Poland.
"Since I was a child I loved animals," Zmyslowska told Bored Panda in an interview on her inspiring photos. "When I was 4, I got two beautiful cats but my biggest dream was still to have a dog. In 2006 this dream came true."
The animal lover's dog portraits truly capture each animal's individual spirit, from the goofy and playful to the serene and inquisitive.
