Dog siblings cross paths on the street & recognize each other before their owners even have a clue

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 The Dodo. “But Monty and Rosie were always together.”

Killip’s friend had adopted Monty and were looking after Rosie for about a week. But the two dogs didn’t have contact after that and were apart for 10 months.

“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.”

The moment was just insanely adorable. The two pups were literally hugging and embracing each other.

It was a moment that just had to be photographed.

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.

“So, Dave was out walking his dog, and there was a couple walking towards him with a white version of his dog,” her dad wrote. “Turns out they are brother and sister from the same litter. But instead of just playing like they do with other dogs, look at this.”

Obviously the post immediately went viral. It was retweeted more than 196,000 times.

According to Your Dog Tufts, some believe that littermates are able to recognize each other if they spend the first 16 weeks of their life together, but there isn’t hard scientific evidence that confirms this.

“Did they truly remember each other as littermates, or did they just have a good feeling about each other? Who knows? Dogs of the same breed often gravitate toward each other, so it’s not possible to say. What we know is this: the scent of another dog stays with a dog for a long time. So a littermate not seen, er, sniffed for years may have a comforting, familiar scent to a dog who comes across him or her after a long period of separation. But whether the dog is processing that it’s a familial connection, we’ll probably never know for sure,” the website reads.

But Pincher and Killip didn’t need any evidence. This bond was plain to see.

And the good news is that Monty and Rosie will see more of each other.

“We will keep in touch,” Killip said. “[It’s] a bit difficult at the moment, but after this is all over, we’ll be having doggy walkies together.”
