WINNIPEG — Like any new parent, Elizabeth Spence first started taking pictures of her son, Archie, when he was born almost eight months ago. She’s been posting them to her Instagram account. They sparked so much interest, she soon had thousands of followers.
Archie regularly drifts off to sleep with the family dog, Nora, sleeping right next to him, Spence said. The mother of three decided to have some fun with the pair. She posed them with a variety of items, such as lightsabres, dolls and teddy bears.
“The reaction has been 99 per cent positive. People are really happy to see that love, trust and innocence caught on camera,” she said.
“Some people are worried about it being dangerous, but I never leave them alone, I’m always in the room.”
Spence said Nora came from a rescue shelter eight years ago and is very affectionate and gentle.
“She puts everyone ahead of herself,” she said.
Nora also has a pup, Remington, who occasionally appears in the pictures (along with the family cat).
Spence said although many people see the pictures as unique, the napping and cuddling session is an everyday occurrence at her home.
“I will put laundry away while Archie is sleeping on my bed, and there is Nora sleeping away with him. The dogs and kids are always interacting.”
