A Dog's Best Friend

A village dog adopts a wild monkey and the two become insperable. When severe flood waters hit northern Mozambique in 2002, causing misery and extensive damage to property and crops, many animals were left to fend for themselves. But villagers in Caia witnessed a bizarre friendship between a dog and a monkey. A skinny dog emerged from the bush with a tiny monkey clinging to its back. The villagers have named the pair Billy and Kiko, and they've been inseparable ever since.
