Sniffer And Tinni: Real-Life "Fox And The Hound"

Sniffer, the wild fox, and Tinni, the dog, are just like Disney's "Fox and the Hound," except this time, they remain best friends and there's no heartbreak involved. 

It's a real-life Disney movie that's even more Disney than the Disney version! Hounds and foxes, typically, do not get along, That's why it was a surprise to Tinni's owner, photographer Torgeir Berge when their interaction blossomed into a real friendship. 

Lucky for us, Torgeir Berge captured some really lovely photos of the pair and now we can all have the "Fox and the Hound" version we all deserve.

This handsome ginger cat is the purrfect papa to this tiny chick, who has decided to never leave the cat's side. 

It doesn't seem like the cat minds too much, though... and we can safely say that neither do we. 

Enjoy some parental love! Unlikely friendships are the best kind of friendships.

Blind Bison Makes First Friend After Years Of Solitude

A blind bison named Helen has been roaming the fields of Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for years, all alone. This was due to the fact that Helen had nervous disposition, she purposely would separate herself from other animals. 

Until now. Oliver, a young Jersey calf has fought his way into Helen's heart with his gentle and kind manner. Since being introduced to Oliver, Helen and Oliver have been inseparable. They do everything together, so much so, that Oliver's fur has even changed in shade to match Helens!

Gwen Jakubisin, at the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, told USA Today, "The change in [Helen's] demeanor is incredible, her joy is palpable."

With around 250 farm animals currently at the sanctuary, Helen has slowly started to reach other to other animals and is extending her social circle -- all thanks to her new courageous friendship with Oliver. 

Helen has also become something of a surrogate mum for Oliver. Jakubisin said, "Betsy (Oliver's mom) usually drops Oliver off at "daycare" and roams around while Helen watches over him for the rest of day, and she's cool with that. I catch them grooming each other, which is amazing because I don't think Helen has ever had that opportunity to express that motherly instinct before." 

We all need love. No matter what shape or form it comes in. And Helen and Oliver is simply further proof of that. 

Here's to you, Helen and Oliver! We adore your unlikely friendship and have learned from it.
