One of the strongest bonds that exist is the bond between siblings.
They are the people we grow up with.
They are with us for most of our lives, even longer than our parents.
“The sibling relationship is life’s longest-lasting relationship, longer, for the most of us by a quarter of a century than our ties to our parents,” wrote Stephen Bank and Michael Kahn in The Sibling Bond, according to Huffington Post. “It lasts longer than our relationship with our children, certainly longer than with a spouse, and with the exception of a few lucky men and women, longer than with a best friend.”
But this bond also exists for animal siblings.
“The unique bond of pet siblings is as important as humans having a life-long companion. In addition, to developing skills that allow for learning and growth, such as communication and socialization, the bond is immeasurable,” writes Trupanion.
This was obvious when cockapoo siblings Monty and Rosie were reunited by chance during a walk.
The two pups went wild after seeing each other after being split apart.
They immediately recognized each other and then went in for some hugs and kisses.
Monty and Rosie were born in the same litter in June.
Their bond was evident even then.
“There were six of them,” Rosie’s mom, Susan Killip, told “But Monty and Rosie were always together.”
“She [Rosie] never saw Monty again until about 3 weeks ago as Jean and David [Monty’s owners] live in the next village so we never see them,” Killip told The Koala.
But that didn’t stop Monty and Rosie from recognizing one another. They reunited without skipping a beat.
“It was so lovely, they both just jumped up and hugged each other,” Killip said. “It was amazing they remembered each other after 10 months of not seeing each other.”
And, of course, posted on the internet.
Libby Pincher’s dad ended up sending her a picture of the happy brother and sister duo and she posted their conversation and the photos her dad sent on Twitter.
