Look how cute this is!

The pool and eventually the river presented these two the opportunity to interact in a way that developed a deep and lasting friendship."

20. The sweetest friendship of them all?
via: Christa HubbardIt has to go to this adorable Pit Bull and blind chicken.
Peri the chicken was adopted by a family when she was just days old.
via: Christa HubbardBut 6 months into her life, she came down with a serious eye infection.
Sadly, her family were told she would lose her sight.
via: Christa Hubbard"We made adjustments to help her as she lost her sight: bowls on a throw rug that make noise, special low roosting bars, an ottoman in the living room to ‘watch’ TV with us in the evening and an extra-large ottoman in our room, next to our bed, for her bed," explained her owner, Christa Hubbard. "We hired a chicken ‘nanny’ to help her out when we weren’t home."
Peri formed an unbreakable bond with the family's Pit Bull, Taj.
via: Christa Hubbard"He was 3 years old and quickly took to helping her find her way. A seeing eye dog for a hen. These two spent the next eight years together. He would guide and protect her. They napped together, sunbathed together."
Sadly, Taj passed away in 2018."Taj died in July 2018 after a long battle with cancer. Peri was lost without her buddy — she knew he was gone. Taj was so important in Peri's life, so the family began to adopt pit bull puppies.
Now, Peri is just as close to her sister, Gracie.
via: Christa Hubbard"Gracie will bring Peri a toy, place it in front of her and wait. When Peri is out in her yard doing chicken things, Gracie can be found laying outside the fence waiting for her (Peri has a fenced-in area as we have a pool). When Peri is on her ottoman ‘watching’ TV, Gracie brings her a toy. First thing in the morning when we get up, Gracie checks on her sleeping friend."
Taj and Peri were inseparable, but it seems that bond has carried through with Gracie too.
