Two sweet dogs in Thailand have become BFFs after months of communicating solely through barks. Their names are Audi and Messy, and for the longest time their only contact had been via their barking over the fence at one another. Recently, however, they got an opportunity to meet face to face, and as you can see from the picture it was love at first sight.
Best Friends Furever
Oranit Kittragul, who lives in Thailand, is the owner of Messy, the pretty yellow Lab pictured above. According to Kittragul, Audi, the husky, was often heard crying in despair after being left alone in his yard. Feeling sorry for the dog, Kittragul would send Messy out, who is said to be friendly and sweet, in the hope of providing Audi a little canine companionship. Messy’s barking seemed to make Audi feel better.
No More Tears
“I don’t know what they are communicating, but he stops crying,” Kittragul is reported as saying. The soothing friendship went on this way for a while until one day Audi managed to get loose from his yard and made his way over to Messy’s yard. Sensing each other’s presence, they immediately took the opportunity to leap up on the fence that was still dividing them and say hello in person.
“He ran to my dog and they hugged each other,” said Kittragul. And she’s not in the least surprised at Messy giving Audi comfort, due to the animal’s loving and affectionate nature. Thankfully, she was able to snap some pix before the magic moment was lost.
The event took place back in February of this year, but it has recently gained traction to become a hit on the Internet. While Kittragul’s motivation in sharing the picture was merely to share the sweet story with the world, she’s apparently not afraid that the fame and notoriety will go to Messy’s head. “He’s an animal, I don’t think he will respond to the spotlight,” she noted.
Until We Meet Again
Reportedly, the two BFFs have not had another opportunity to get in any more face time, but there’s always hope. In the meantime, they continue to communicate the same way they always did, by barking across the yard. If you have a story like this to share, please tell us about it in the comments section below.
