Sniff! Darcy the Guide Dog Gets to Know Polly the Pig
Looks like it's love at first sniff for Darcy and Polly!

While these two creatures may seem like opposites, there's a definite attraction between the new friends, who have gotten to know each other as part of a training program for guide dogs in Melbourne, Australia.

Polly is a 12-month-old pig. Darcy is a 12-week-old Labrador puppy. It might seem odd, but as part of guide-dog-in-training Darcy's socialization, the pooch is hanging out with Miss Polly and the two have become fast friends. They've even been caught nuzzling and sunning together on the grass.
