In the Telegraph, an article about a rescued Bassett Hound and an owl who watch tv together:
The pair have become inseparable since meeting at an animal refuge, and are quite happy to cuddle up together on an armchair.
Beryl the Basset Hound, who is a grand old dame at 16 years old, and four-year-old tawny owl Wol struck up a friendship when their owner realised they both loved watching television in the evenings.
I'm hoping this is a good omen for 2009. It's not exactly the lion lying down with the lamb, but it's close enough for government work. Plus it's just really pleasing to me on a level I can't articulate.
