A Beagle and a baby possum become the best of friends and live happily ever after. It sounds like the plot of a children’s book, but what you are about to read is a true story, with video evidence to prove it.

Molly the Beagle became depressed after losing her entire litter of puppies at birth. The mourning mom was having a hard time in life and needed something, or someone, to cheer her up.

When a baby possum jumped on top of Molly’s back just a few days later, a ray of sunshine entered the doggo’s life.

“They’ve been inseparable ever since,” Molly’s owners, Elle and Sara Moyle, told 9News in southwest Victoria, Australia.

Since possums are nocturnal animals, the little critter spends her days sleeping in the trees on the dog’s property. Never fear though, Molly keeps an eye on her pal, which the family named ‘Poss.’

Although it’s unclear how long the friendship will last, one thing is for sure. Molly just needed a possum on her back to help her feel happy again. Watch the video below for all the feels.
