As Tahnee Reid explained, she has never witnessed a more authentic friendship than the one that her three-year-old dog, Mr. Jenkins, and her five-year-old guinea pig, Maple, have.
The two besties not only have identical marks but they also share their passion for habits such as eating veggies, napping at the same time, and playing.
According to the 35-year-old animal lover, she was initially worried about how her dogs would get along with Maple. Fortunately, however, all of her fears disappeared after realizing how strong a bond Maple formed with Mr. Jenkins.
“I really can’t believe how close they are to each other. They’re total best friends. At first I thought Mr. Jenkins would be too much for Maple. But they just adore each other,” Tahnee admitted.
“I think their friendship first blossomed over their mutual love of carrots. I’d give one to them each and they would just hang out and eat them together, enjoying each other’s company.
“Their bond grew from there and Maple now follows Mr. Jenkins everywhere. She is his little shadow, and I think he secretly likes the fact he has a little sidekick next to him.
“Even though he is younger, Mr. Jenkins really takes on the parental role with Maple. He checks in on her and is happy to give her a groom throughout the day.
“They really do have this amazing and strange little friendship. It captures the hearts of everyone that meets them or sees their photos.”
