Back in 2009, Austrian photographer Andreas Jakwerth was holidaying in the Tallangatta Valley in Victoria, Australia, when he met Douglas.

Douglas lived with the family Jakwerth was staying with.

It was love at first belly rub.

Jakwerth says, "Douglas was a baby back then, that's why he was so affectionate. He wouldn't leave our side, always begging (and biting) for more hugs and belly-rubs."

Cute!
