Just like us humans, dogs can also make friends with their neighbours, their best friendship sometimes starts from over a fence.
But for our neighbors’ stories , the height difference stood in the way of their amazing friendship, until their neighbours found a sweet and inspiring solution.
Dog brothers Bambino and Vito are great Danes, so they are taller than the average dogs.
The brothers are tall and have no problems to see over their neighbor’s yard so when a chocolate lab named Giuseppe moved in months ago they were happy and excited.
But the sweet lab wasn’t as tall as the neighbours and struggled to meet his beloved neighbours.
“He has tried many times to jump up and get a good whiff of his big doggy friends whenever we’re all outside,” Afton Tarin, owner of Vito and Bambino, told The Dodo.
Gieuseppe’s owner Robert Carnes watched from behind the fence how his pooch tried so hard to see his neighbours and told him in a joke way “If you only had a step stool.”
After saying it he realized that the idea wasn’t as crazy after all, since he had a step stool he placed in front of the fence so his dog could use it.
Finally the furry friends were able to meet each other face to face.
Robert took a picture and shared it with the neighbours who thought this was such a sweet photo and shared it on Instagram.
“My initial reaction was to bust up laughing,” Afton told The Dodo. “Seeing his little feet fully extended and his tail all blurred out from wagging too fast, I couldn’t help it. So stinkin’ cute.”
“It definitely gives you that feel-good feeling.”
The new neighbours are now friends and often walk the dogs together.
This is such a sweet friendship and all thanks to a step stool, go boys thrive away.
