Sibling rivalries are just the worst, right? Apparently not for Lottie and Grizzly, the best friends/siblings from Sudbury, Ontario who are taking the Internet by storm.

Lottie the Border Collie and Grizzly the German Shepherd love each other so much that the dogs taught themselves how to hug each other, the duo’s owner Taylor Duguay told Buzzfeed Canada.

According to Duguay, Lottie, who is a trained show dog, was learning to ‘sit pretty’ when out of nowhere she just hugged Grizzly.

“They where positioned closely beside each other, and when I asked them both to ‘sit pretty,’ Lottie very gently placed her paws on Grizzly,” Duguay told Buzzfeed Canada. “I almost died of cuteness.”

Ever since, Duguay has taught the duo how to hug on cue, using the command ‘who’s your best friend?’ “Now when I ask Lottie who her best friend is, you can even catch Grizzly getting ready for the hug and leaning into her,” Duguay told the Daily Mail.

However, she notes that the pair is pretty much attached at the hip even without her commanding them to hug.

“Lottie and Grizzly have been inseparable since day one,” Duguay said to BuzzFeed Canada. “Lottie truly believes Grizzly is her own puppy.” Considering how many dogs like human friendship over other dogs, this is pretty impressive (and adorable!)
