Two dogs, named Messy and Audi, live across the street from each other in Thailand.
Oranit Kittragul heard Audi crying often every time he was alone in the backyard, so she would let Messy out into her own backyard in an attempt to calm Audi down.
Messy would start barking like he was trying to tell Audi that it was okay, and Audi would instantly stop crying. We’ll never know what dog’s barks mean, but maybe they really are talking to each other!
The two had never even met face-to-face before, but they were already the best of friends through the long-distance communication.
One day, Audi got loose and ran to Messy’s backyard fence. He jumped up and put his two front paws on the top of the fence, and Messy did the same. Finally, for the first time, these doggy pals had the opportunity to give each other a warm embrace. And that’s exactly what they did!
Luckily, Kittragul witnessed the hug and was able to snap photos of it. She posted the pictures online, which ended up going viral and were featured in publications all over the world.
The photos brought smiles to many people’s faces and reminds us how kind animals truly are.

Kittragul brings messy to visit Audi in front of Audi’s house sometimes, but the two have yet to have an official playdate. Hopefully their owners can make that happen soon! Their friendship is absolutely heartwarming!
