    Default Bassett Hound and owl strike up unusual friendship

    The pair have become inseparable since meeting at an animal refuge, and are quite happy to cuddle up together on an armchair.
    Beryl the Basset Hound, who is a grand old dame at 16 years old, and four-year-old tawny owl Wol struck up a friendship when their owner realised they both loved watching television in the evenings.
    Sara Ross, who shares her home in Tenterden, Kent, with the animals said: "They are both rescue animals and they're like best buddies. Wol needs full-time care and one day I was giving him a bit of exercise and he just plonked down on Beryl's back. She doesn't mind, she's really laid back and a bit of a pussycat really.
    "She didn't mind at all and now you can't keep them apart.
    "Four times-a-week you'll see them settle down to watch what's going on in Albert Square. Beryl barks when it's over and Wol gets a bit upset too, with a bit of flapping.
    She added: "They are inseparable. They love cuddling up and watching television together.
    "It won't come as a surprise that they love nature documentaries, but they also like soaps like Coronation Street and Emmerdale."
    She added: "I've never known two animals who are so different hit it off quite so well. They just love being around each other."
