Fox and dog meet in the woods, form adorable friendship

It's the stuff of Disney fairy tales: A fox and a dog stumble upon each other in the woods and become fast friends. That's what happened last summer, when Norwegian photographer Torgeir Berge went out for a walk with his German shepherd Tinni, and they encountered an abandoned baby fox. 

"He was a puppy and probably his mother had died, so he sought help and company, and food," Berit Helberg, who is co-authoring a book with Berge on the unique friendship, told in an email.

Since then the fox, which Berge dubbed Sniffer, has been a regular addition to their walks in the woods, coming around to play with 4-year-old Tinni for a couple of hours on most days. Berge started taking photos of the pair and eventually solicited advice from Helberg, who belonged to the same nature photography group on Facebook, on how to turn his work into a book. Helberg offered to write stories to accompany the pictures, and they hope to bring the friendship to life in a book sometime next year.
