Fox Glance: During a regular trip through the forest, of which my actual intent was landscapes, I encountered this stunning little Red Fox.

Although we now only have dogs, I am a cat lover too and these pictures just make me smile….

I have decided to share adorable photographs revealing the forever friendship of cats and dogs. Checkout!
