This is the cutest friendship in the history of friendships. The lucky photographer who knows this pair is planning to release a children’s book.

The author and the photographer agree that some of the proceeds of the book will be donated to an organization that combats fur practices that harm animals like Sniffer.

    The photos are so beautiful of these two incredible friends. I have no doubt this book will be one that everyone who loves animals will want to add to their collection. To even imagine animals such as this precious fox being kept on a heinous fur farm, breaks my heart. They suffer their entire unnatural lives, only to be cruelly killed for their fur, by anal electrocution or some other equally sickening method. Steel traps are also another plague upon animals like foxes, beaver, coyotes, and others. I question the heart of anyone who could hurt animals like these for the purpose of sport, fur, or a so called trophy.

      Thank you for your comments, Marie, I completely agree. The fur industry is my most hated exploiter.
