Whooo’se Your Buddy?

I remember my old man telling me, “Bo, be careful of the company you keep, for it says a lot about you.”

I couldn’t agree with him more, but for whatever reason, I just couldn’t get him out of my life. At least he was a well trained, treat giving machine.

The same can not be said about a Basset Hound named Beryl, who likes the company of a feathery friend.

Check out his story from the The Telegraph.

Beryl the Basset Hound, who is a grand old dame at 16 years old, and four-year-old tawny owl Wol struck up a friendship when their owner realised they both loved watching television in the evenings.

Sara Ross, who shares her home in Tenterden, Kent, with the animals said: “They are both rescue animals and they’re like best buddies. Wol needs full-time care and one day I was giving him a bit of exercise and he just plonked down on Beryl’s back. She doesn’t mind, she’s really laid back and a bit of a pussycat really.

“She didn’t mind at all and now you can’t keep them apart.

“Four times-a-week you’ll see them settle down to watch what’s going on in Albert Square. Beryl barks when it’s over and Wol gets a bit upset too, with a bit of flapping.

She added: “They are inseparable. They love cuddling up and watching television together.

“It won’t come as a surprise that they love nature documentaries, but they also like soaps like Coronation Street and Emmerdale.”

She added: “I’ve never known two animals who are so different hit it off quite so well. They just love being around each other.”

I know two animals who have hit it off even better. Ever hear of Turner and Hooch?
