If you believe that dogs and cats can't get along, you'd better check out this series of photos of Ike the cat and Alice the dog.
Owner Doug Mahugh says Alice and Ike have grown to be close friends, and Alice seems to look to Ike as something of a role model. She watches him leaping and climbing, and she tries to do the same.
Doug says Alice was curious about Ike from the very beginning, and she was pretty pushy as a puppy. Doug and wife Megan's other samoyed, Jamie, would restrain Alice from the cats, apparently trying to keep her from experiencing their sharp claws.
The rest of the household includes Ike's brother, Fish, and the reserved tabby mix, Murg, who has no patience for the dogs and runs from them.
