Stories regarding dogs in pop culture tend to revolve around three things: their bravery, their wonderfulness as pets and the strong bond they can develop with their human masters. The 'strong dog-human bond' is such a popular angle to any dog story that it has been the basis of lots of movies, novels and stories. But there is one angle that pop culture tends to miss, and that is the bond between dogs themselves. Stories about dogs loving and sticking up for each other aren’t too common, but they are beautiful. One such story is that of Taco and Merrill, two dogs of different breeds that shows how wonderful such a bond can be.
