Golden Retriever Recognizes Cow He Met Months Ago and Now They're Best Friends | 22 Words

One woman from Ireland has captured the purest of moments between two unlikely friends, and it's left viewers an emotional wreck.

We love these unlikely animal friendships so much that we've compiled a list of some of the cutest for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy...

Nature is filled with incredible things and unlikely animal friendships are certainly one of the best!

Seeing a bunch of animals hanging out with other animals that you wouldn't expect them to is one of the weirdest and most wonderful combinations ever.

And the latest friendship between a cow and a puppy might just be our favorite yet...

But first, let's take a look at some of the most peculiar partnerships.

Tinni the dog and Sniffer the wild fox.

The pair met in a Norwegian forest.

And now they've become best friends!

While on a walk, Tinni and his owner, Torgeir Berge, were on a walk together in the forest when they met a wild fox.

The pair instantly hit it off...

And now every time they visit the forest, the pair meet up to play around with each other despite all their differences.

Isn't that just the cutest thing you've ever heard?

The experience has changed Berge’s mind about Norway’s fox-fur trade. He now wants to help work to ban the hunting of foxes. We love it!

Champy the horse and Morris the cat.

According to their owner, this pair has been best friends for the past 6 years.

And their loving bond makes for some good photo opportunities.

That rainbow really pulls everything together.

Champy loves to make friends with everyone.

"We live in NSW Australia," said their owner, "and have quite a few kangaroos on the property – Champy and Morris love to watch them."

Champy has tried to befriend a kangaroo but has not been successful.

But in the meantime, he has Morris to keep him company.

They even have cute outfits!

This photograph was titled: "You look this way and I'll look the other." They always have a watchful eye over the farm.

"Morris loves smooching with Champy’s eyelashes."

And apparently, they're affectionate with each other often.

Morris apparently hates riding bareback...

Because he always slips off! So these outfits are a necessity. What an amazing friendship they have.

Penny the chicken and Roo the chihuahua.

This unlikely combination found a love for each other while they were at Duluth Animal Hospital.

Penny the chicken was rescued from a laboratory, while Roo was found on the roadside.

“She was an experimental chicken in the program and she had run the course of the experiment, so that was it for her," Williams told the Gwinnett Daily Post. "I asked if I could have her instead of them doing anything with her. I brought her home."

And since then, they haven't stopped spending time with each other.

Did you ever think you'd see a two-legged dog and an overly fluffy chicken taking a walk in the snow? I's life's most simplest pleasures.

I'd give my heart for these two!

And those are just the facts.

Mabel the chicken and her puppies are the cutest things.

"After being saved from the pot due to a foot injury, Mable found a new wonder when she was moved into her owners’ home – puppies! For some reason, the year-old hen has taken to roosting on the puppies and keeping them warm!"

Look how cute this is!

"Hens, like all mothers, naturally want to protect, nurture, and care for babies. Since she doesn't have babies, but there are puppies around, she wants to mother the puppies, and by god, she's gonna mother them puppies."

Ponzu the golden retriever and Ichimi the kitten.

When Ichimi the kitten was rejected by her mother, Ponzu the golden retriever and his owner Jessiepon took her in and nursed her back to full health.

They quickly became inseparable...

The pair often play together and Ponzu even cleans and sleeps with Ichimi. Way too cute!

And finally, this brings us to our favorite unlikely pair.

A golden retriever puppy was beyond excited recently to see his cow best friend, after spending 6 months apart from one another.

Blanáid May, from Ireland, was walking her puppy back in August 2020 when she saw him licking a calf at a farm near her home...

And she later learned that the golden retriever had actually met the baby cow 6 months ago.

In the video, she explained: "Then he [the puppy] went away for 3 months. Then the calf came back and they remembered each other."

In the clip, the pooch seems overly excited about seeing his friend again, going straight in for kisses.

Her video has understandably left viewers in tears over the pure connection the two animals share...

One wrote: "Animals know more than us about getting along. This is so pure and precious." Another said: "This is just the most heart-swelling thing I've seen. We don't deserve these amazing beings."
