A photographer in Norway was walking her dog Sniffer, when the pooch made a most unlikely friend. Torgeir Berge started photographing Sniffer and his new fox friend, named Tinni, as they romped about in the forest. The closeness of the two inspired Berge to use them as inspiration for a children’s book, which will aim to raise awareness about the fur trade.
