OK, we’ll admit it, animal friendships are the staple of every blog site from here to www.timbuktu.com, but animals are animals, so we had to get on the bandwagon sooner or later. Still, we’ve tried to keep things interesting and not just indulgent here, with an emphasis on the coolest as well as cutest match-ups, good photography, and interesting stories or explanation behind what’s going on in the shot.

Monkey on my back
This first match made in heaven comes from photographer Roberto Saccon, who was watching out of his car window in São Luís, Brazil, when he couldn’t believe the sight that met his eyes: a monkey riding on a dog’s back. Luckily he was carrying his camera, so he jumped out of the car and followed the unusual couple. The dog’s owners lived nearby and allowed Saccon to shoot some photos, telling him that only one of their two dogs had formed the special relationship with the cute little monkey.
