REAL-LIFE FOX AND THE HOUND BEST FRIENDS WILL MELT YOUR HEART

Meet Tinni (the dog on the left) and Sniffer (the fox on the right). 
They are truly the BEST FRIENDS who live together in the Norwegian Forest.

Photographer Torgeir Berge is Tinni’s guardian and has watched the development of his dog’s incredible relationship with this wild fox.

Torgeir and his writing partner Berit Helberg are planning on publishing a book for children and adults full of fairy tales and Berge’s beautiful photos.

These two must have been destined for friendship!

The author and the photographer agree that some of the proceeds of the book will be donated to an organization that combats fur practices that harm animals like Sniffer.

As Helberg writes, “in this way we can be the voice of the animals.”

One thing is abundantly clear: Sniffer and Tinni LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH.
bf8
They love to play.
bf9

And they love to rest.
bf10

They could talk for hours.
bf11

They have similar interests (traipsing, jumping, stick carrying, hanging out with each other).

Berge explains that while Tinni and Sniffer might seem like an unlikely duo, they are actually very much the same.

And anyone who looks at these pictures can see the affection and understanding that they share.
bf14

If only humans could all be as kind and accepting as this pair.

Love is love.

And when you’re the best of friends, the rest of the world stands still.
