The gorgeous dogs have been watching over the grandkids since they were babies, posing for pictures as they play games together, dress up and give each other cuddles.
The giant poodles, otherwise known as royal poodles, aren’t actually a separate breed of dog, they’re just bigger versions of the standard breed and can weigh more than four stone.
Riku, Gaku and Qoo are all pretty similar in size making them look like a fabulous trio. Riku – who is Mame’s best friend – is eleven years old while Qoo is thirteen years old and Gaku is three.
And the little gang of kids and doggos have amassed quite a following too.More than 500,000 people tune into the grandma’s Instagram account, @tamanegi.qoo.riku, where they can see an abundance of cuteness.
We caught up with the grandma who tells us she’s had Qoo since 2007. In 2008, she then got Riku. The most recent of the gang is Gaku who is just a few years older than the youngest grandchild Mugi.
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Have you ever wondered why your dog curls up in a ball when they sleep? It’s actually an age-old instinct to keep themselves warm and to protect vital organs while they sleep.
Little Mugi has also taken to the dogs and is often photographed hugging them or even wearing matching clothes with them.The grandma tells Metro.co.uk: ‘My grandchildren and dogs are good friends. They’ve all been together since the kids were born.’
We wish we had these adorable poodles as childhood friends.
