The mom behind the photo app is shocked about how much attention her son and his puppy are getting on social media. Their sleeping pics have already garnered her over 80,000 Instagram followers — and counting!

Jessica Shyba, the mom behind now-famous @mommasgonecity Instagram account, can’t believe how popular her nearly 2-year-old son Beau and his puppy Theo have gotten! How could she be surprised, when the pair’s too-cute naps are the highlight of our Instagram feed refreshing? Jessica spoke out about how the photos started — and shared the most adorable behind-the-lens details!

Theo & Beau Instagram Pics Go Viral: Boy & His Puppy’s Sweet Napping Pics

Jessica was floored by the response she got from fans across the world! Her photos started after her dog, Theo, had trouble sleeping alone — but he quickly captured the hearts of pet lovers worldwide, and #theoandbeau was born!

“I’m completely flabbergasted. It’s beyond anything I’ve ever dreamed,” she told KTVU about the attention. “I think there is just so much bad news in the world, all the time every day, that is all we see.”

“Each day, Theo meets us at naptime and waits patiently for Beau to fall asleep,” Jessica told KTVU. “By that time, he’s also sleepy, so when I hoist him on to our bed, he stumbles over to Beau and plops right down on top of him. And there they sleep, entwined, for at least two hours.”

Theo and Beau’s pictures bring a sense of peacefulness in their interactions. “Based on the responses that I’m getting, it’s the peacefulness and the natural way that they are together,” Jessica said of the mass appeal. “It’s sweet and it’s innocent and it’s lovely and people appreciate it and I appreciate it.”

Jessica’s precious updates have extended into Vine videos — and yes, we really appreciate them!

Jessica Shyba Urges Fans To Donate To Pet Shelters

Jessica is using her pup’s rise to fame as a chance to help out other pets! She asks that people inspired by her son and dog’s bond to donate to their local pet rescue shelter. She adopted Theo – a part Boxer, part Shepherd, part Labrador Retriever – from the Santa Cruz SPCA, and he was actually one of 11 pups rescued from the same litter, according to KTVU.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are Theo and Beau your favorite Instagram sensation?
