There's one thing all dog lovers know: dogs are part of the family. And once they're in, they're there to stay.

This is exactly the mindset of Stasha Becker and her son, Julian, who are the proud owners of two Newfoundlands. Max and Bruce are treated like regular family members — the four do everything together, and Stasha documents their life on Instagram.

Right now they live in Japan, but the family just embarked on a two month road trip across the United States. Talk about bonding! See some of Stasha's stunning shots below.
