In this world, there is nothing cuter than unlikely animal friendships. This particular friendship between Aayla the rescue seal and her buddy, Stanley, a two-year-old dachshund, formed after a vacation trip.
Aayla and Stanley first met at the Sea Life Trust Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Cornwall, while Stanley’s owner, Melanie Talbot, was vacationing there.
DOG OF THE WEEK 🐶 We’ve decided as we get so many incredible dogs visiting us, we wanted to share our favourite each…
During their very first encounter, Aayla swam straight up to Stanley and befriended him. The pair then spent 20 minutes posing together for pictures.
The adorable pictures were shared with the official Facebook page of the Sea Life Trust Cornish Seal Sanctuary.
The page wrote, “DOG OF THE WEEK. We’ve decided as we get so many incredible dogs visiting us, we wanted to share our favorite each week (trust us, it is hard to pick!) This [week’s] winner is Stanley, who shared a magical moment with Aayla.”
Melanie wonders if Aayla mistook Stanley for a small seal since, at the time, he was wearing a fleece jacket and snood. However, regardless of whether or not it was a case of mistaken identity, the comments section on the post shed some light on the fact that Aayla loves nothing more than booping noses with furry friends.
