This first match made in heaven comes from photographer Roberto Saccon, who was watching out of his car window in São Luís, Brazil, when he couldn't believe the sight that met his eyes: a monkey riding on a dog's back. Luckily he was carrying his camera, so he jumped out of the car and followed the unusual couple. The dog's owners lived nearby and allowed Saccon to shoot some photos, telling him that only one of their two dogs had formed the special relationship with the cute little monkey.

It's hard to tell what's guiding the behaviour of this funny pair, though it looks like the frog may be getting steered by the mouse's tiny paw. Is the mouse being rescued from highwater by the frog or is that just one opportunistic rodent hitching along for the ride? Either way, it's a shot that has become a bit of a classic on the old intertubes, scoring high in the cutesy stakes.
