This is the adorable moment a ‘big baby’ Dalmatian sits on its owner’s lap on a swing.
As John Brant and pet pooch Payton went for walkies, they stumbled across a playground near their home in San Diego, California, USA.
Taking a seat on one of the free seats, John lifts the four-year-old on to his lap and cradles him close.
Swinging back and forth, Payton looks completely at ease with the situation.
John said: “Payton is my big baby.
“He loves being on the swings.
“I was worried when we got our puppy called Myles, as Payton had been the only dog in the house for years.
“They’re inseparable now though, almost like father and son.”
