The owl and the greyhound

Oh, too cute! A greyhound puppy has adopted a baby owl. From the Mail Online:

In the childhood fairytale it was the owl and the pussycat who were the very best of friends.

But in real life it is this greyhound and owl who have formed a rather bizarre friendship at an animal centre.

The six-month-old dog, Torque, adopted tiny baby owl Shrek when she was taken from her mother for her own protection after just three days.

Keepers feared Shrek’s mother would eat her first clutch if she became stressed.

Adoptive dad Torque is now guarding the rare bird at the home of head falconer John Picton.

They spend their evenings together watching Eastenders and Coronation Street. [continue, see photos]
