When Harper Dee Mealey was born on August 21, 2023, her parents, Michael and Ash, had no idea she would break the internet.

Even though Harper is the Mealeys' sixth child, the Cleveland couple decided they weren't done with babies. Just a few months after her birth, they decided to make a furry addition to their family.

They got an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy and named the tiny dog Bailey!
