20 Perfect Pairs of Pets

Pets often come best in pairs. Two pets will keep each other company and entertain one another. They also provide you as the owner with double the fun!

My two corgis Ty and Eve compliment each other quite well by being opposites in many ways. Ty is shy and reserved, while Eve is rambunctious and outgoing.  They also are different colors.  Yet, they make a good pair of companions and spend plenty of time together playing.

I love the following photos of pairs of pets, many of which could be twins. Also included are some examples of excellent photography.  If you enjoy animal photos, this is for you, since two is always better than one!

    Did you know that Prairie Dogs can be kept as pets? They can, although there are some challenges to dealing with their semi-hibernation schedule.  These two are happily sharing a healthy snack.
