Bringing a pooch into your life is a 15 to 20 year commitment. Unlike kids who grow up and leave the nest or a partner you might break up with, a dog is going to depend on you for the rest of her life. It's not the kind of decision you can make on a whim -- it takes special consideration and an understanding of the gravity of what it means to welcome a creature into your life, who will need you until the very end.

These photos, compiled by DogHeirs, demonstrate this promise, as people photograph their dogs as puppies and then years later -- they are constant canine companions.

That might seem like a lot to commit to, right? But ask any dog guardian and he or she will tell you that it's all worth it. Vet bills can be steep, and you might have to say goodbye to a couple of favorite pairs of shoes as Fido grows from puppy to dog, but while he'll shed his youthful quirks, he will never lose the smile that erupts on his face when he hears your key turning in the door.

These photos of dogs and their humans, then and now, illustrate the beauty of our relationships. While a lot of things in life may change, the love of a dog remains the same.
