BFF: The dog and the orangutan (9 Photos)

The dog’s name is Roscoe and the orangutan’s name is Suryia and they have been best friends since infancy. The unorthodox friends recently released a picture book about their relationship. In other news, they both swear they’re “just friends” but I don’t buy that for a second. I see love in their eyes.

      We have potatoes and vine ripened tomatoes – But we have no bananas!

    #9 A dog and an orangutan have a book, are famous and on The Chive. It's official – My life sucks.

  • Stafferty

    #5 Without the bananna, this could be documentation of domestic violence. Explains why Roscoe never looks the monkey in the eye.

    • Emilie

      Yeah, that banana was shopped in so this photo wouldn't hurt sales.

    • tret20

      i got the tangs part but the rest? umm…what?

      • The_Dood

        It took me a few tries but… I think it means: Tangs are apes, not monkeys. Also, (Tang is) a somewhat okay drink.

    Reminded of that jingle from the old kids doll.

    My Buddy….my buddy….my buddy and meeee.

  • EdWood

    And they called it "PUPPY Love".

    Or was that "MONKEY Love".

  • charles

    • DistractedIndividual

      The truth sure can suck sometimes….. Meh, thus the circle of life keeps on rotating….

      • VapeFace

        yeah, doesn't take away the fact that your a Debbie Downer. This post put a huge smile on my face.

        • Flicka

          Most semi-intelligent animals outlive dogs. It's the adult humans who buy parrots that confuse me. It's not nearly as sad to outlive your pet as it is to have a pet that'll outlive you.

  • Selmy

    Someone should shoot that monkey. I hate monkeys.

    The dog seems pretty cool though.

    • Jen

      b/c they are smarter than you?

      • Selmy

        Nah. You know how some people don't like snakes, or spiders or whatever? I just don't like monkeys. For whatever reason since I was a little kid, they always made me uncomfortable.

    • sooper truper

      actually its an orangutang…not a monkey. Any stupid monkey would know that!

  • Michael

    Debbie Downer moment: the ape will outlive the dog by decades. I'd hate to see the day the dog dies.

  • VedHead77

    Just signed up for the miniature "Lap Orangutan" wait list! Can't wait for mine to arrive! *rolleyes*

  • HayzeOne

    Do I smell a buddy movie??

    #5 that's pretty flipping adorable.

  • Victor Fernandez

    Chive to the broken-hearted 😦
    thank you chive, you guys are making this so easy to overcome
    Chive On!

  • echogeo

    True. I wouldn't be surprised if his tail was wagging a mile a minute though.

  • echogeo

    You can bet that if anyone tried to mess with Roscoe Suryia would rip their arm off & beat 'em to death with it.
