There is a saying that basically says that if you create a good fence, you will create a good neighbor.
However, two Australian dogs are proving this statement wrong, in so doing proving that creating a good fence only separates good friends.
Cashew and Aeida are neighbors, not only neighbors but also best friends, and have been ever since they moved in next door to one another. They became so close that their owners had to throw in the towel at trying to keep them separate and place a doggie door in the fence, so they could mix and mingle whenever they wanted.
As a result of the lasting friendship, Aeida, a Staffordshire bull terrier, has also become very close with Cashew’s human family, especially the kids.
“Aeida is very friendly and loving,” Aeida’s owner, Nicole Ackehurst, said to The Dodo. “She really just loves everyone and anything — especially our neighbors’ children.”
So when Aeida would magically disappear each evening, Nicole just thought he was spending time next door at Cashews. Then Cashew’s owners sent her a text revealing the full extent of Aeida’s evening adventures.
“Our neighbors sent us a Facebook message with Aeida sitting in their bathtub,” Ackehurst said.
She found quite amusing, as the normally stubborn Aeida refuses bath time at her own home.
Given that both dogs are so close to one another, it’s only natural that they both integrate into each other’s families.
“I’m pretty sure our neighbors love having her over, just as we love having Cashew come over too,” Ackehurst said. “Aeida and Cashew are great friends and have such a strong bond. They’re both considered great parts of our families.”
