Your morning adorable: Poodle and parrot are best friends

We could hardly contain our delight when we saw YouTube user vpaulsmith3‘s video demonstrating the friendship between his poodle, Teddy, and parrot, Gizmo.

Teddy wants to play with Gizmo so badly, and Gizmo seems to return the sentiment (although he’d also like to investigate vpaulsmith3’s video camera). We love the moment, around two minutes in, when Teddy just can’t take it anymore and starts yipping impatiently.

These two are such good pals that, after Teddy required surgery and was recovering, post vet visit, at home, his faithful bird Gizmo tried to cheer him up! (He also tried to steal the plastic spoon from which Teddy was eating, but what do you expect? He’s a parrot.)
