Thank goodness for best friends. They can always be counted on to cheer you up, watch your back, stand by you in the toughest spots.

Missy the dog’s best friend will even cuddle on her belly.

Tennessee’s Monroe County canine is inseparable from a pig named Tenderloin.

The animals live a few miles outside Madisonville with their owner Kayla Watson.

They walk together, relax together, and can’t seem to get enough of each other.

“It’s like she has separation anxiety when she gets away from her, she just likes walking with her and laying on her a lot! It’s a little cuddle buddy,” Watson said of the pig’s devotion to the dog.
