In a captivating viral photo, the two were caught on camera hugging each other lovingly, as if they had not seen each other for years.  But as it turns out, the two best friends meet often – at least weekly – and they are always the same happy!

This beautiful moment, which initially went viral on Twitter, was shared by WeRateDogs as a joke.  “Hugging for the first time in a year,” they wrote.  However, things are completely different for these two friends.

Simba – a mini Goldendoll – and Cooper – a Havanese – actually live in the same area, and go to the park almost every weekend.  In addition, Simba sometimes walks out of his backyard to visit his dear friend.

The two friends, both an adult a few months ago, know each other since they were puppies because they live in the same neighborhood in Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

“If they see each other on the weekends or Simba escapes from my yard,” said Roberto Gudo, owner of Simba.  “They love each other. My daughter and friend’s daughter are friends.”

The moment the two puppies greeted each other with affectionate hugs, they gained immense popularity online, while other parents encouraged their furry children to share photos showing affection for each other.  Here are some of them:

“Nice to see you”
