Peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and milk. Carrots and peas. Bert and Ernie. The Lone Ranger and Tonto. Kermit and Miss Piggy. Batman and Robin.
Wha do all of these have in common? They make awesome partners/sidekicks. You can have them alone, but they work well together. And these are just a few. Truthfully the world is full of these amazing teams. Perhaps you have one of your own.
In our house we have Ollie and Billy. Ollie happens to be a slightly bedraggled Opossum and Billy is a scruffy Buffalo. The dog insists they go over where he goes. He prefers to have both of them with him. If you bring only one, he will seek out the other one and pout until they are all reunited.
The funny thing is, he didn’t get them at the same time. Billy had been in his life about a year before Ollie arrived. When he got Ollie, the first thing he did was run to get Billie and put him beside Ollie. Then he promptly flopped down on top of both of them and fell asleep. That has been the beginning of an inseparable relationship between the dog and his favorite stuffed, squeaky toys.
I’m not sure what superpowers they have, but it must be something amazing because I can’t explain the bond otherwise.
