What’s cuter than an Alaskan Malamute? An Alaskan Malamute with a parrot for a best friend. Tydus, a 4-year-old Alaskan Malamute living in South Africa, is said to be a giant goofy teddy bear around family, but more mature around strangers. Trez, on the other hand, is a mischevious African Grey parrot whose only goal is to take over the world.
Naturally, the internet has fallen head over heels with this dynamic duo. With more than 160k followers on Instagram, they have been featured on numerous websites and social media pages such as 9gag, The Dodo, and Unilad.
“Our page displays the daily life of Tydus and our African Grey Congo, Trez, Creating a blog type feel to it through the lens of our animals,” write their owners on the pets’ dedicated web page (you didn’t think these two wouldn’t have their own webpage right?). “This method has proven to be successful as many people have come to know the attitude and personality of both Trez and Tydus,” they write. “We believe this aspect is what makes our page so special and engaging. We also promote good and healthy animal care in a very informative manner. Today, our influence and followers continue to expand to new horizons.”
They add that Tydus’ coat requires a lot of care as it matts if left unattended for too long. “He has a large stature complimented with a big chest which is often overwhelming for people, not to mention all that fur makes him look bigger,” they say. His parrot buddy, on the other hand, is said to be highly intelligent, often telling Tydus to “stop it” and occasionally complimenting him with a “Good Boy Tydus.”
Can these two please get their own TV show?!
