These Two Pets Are the Live-Action Version of Pinky and the Brain

We’ve got your daily cute fix right here, with Tydus and Trez, two South African friends with very different backgrounds. While Tydus, a 4-year-old Alaskan Malamute, is a giant goofy teddy bear, Trez, an African Grey parrot, dreams of taking over the world. Sounds like the live-action version of Pinky and the Brain to us.

“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. The two’s online presence includes more than 160k followers on Instagram and features on websites like 9gag, The Dodo, and Unilad. “We also promote good and healthy animal care in a very informative manner,” write their owners.

Taking of an Alaskan Malamute and a parrot sounds like hard work to us, and the owners admit 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 friend, 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”.

Need we say more or are you already convinced you should follow these two on Instagram?
