Julian Becker and Max the dog
Julian Becker and his 75kg pet dog Max have been creating something of a stir on the internet lately.
Five-year-old Julian's mother Stasha started taking pictures of the cute dog and her son every day before they got in the family car. With her husband away regularly in his role as a naval officer, the pictures began as a way of keeping the family in touch.
The Beckers live in Whidbey Island, Washington, US with Max the Newfoundland dog, but both Julian and Max were born in England. Mother Stasha says: "My boy still drinks tea every morning but has mostly lost the accent. Max still barks with a Yorkshire twang."
