Therapy dog and pet rat make unusual friendship

Written by Bronwyn Hall

What do you get if you cross a therapy dog and a pet rat? Sounds like the intro to a bad joke, doesn’t it?

Well, if you follow Chicago based therapy dog Osiris and Riff, the pet rat, on Instagram (@osirisandriff) you’ll know it’s the recipe for a very¬†unusual friendship.

Osiris is a three year old Dutch Shepherd and Riff the rat is just three months old. What these two get up to in their day to day relationship will blow your mind!

From cleaning each other (admittedly, it might take a little longer for Riff)…

These guys know how to have a good time! Even if they just stay at home and take a nap with their human.

We salute you Osiris and Riff!
