"When they met Kirill realized he wasn't the only one in the world missing a hand. They have a special bond due to that," Doug told INSIDE EDITION.

According to Doug, they did the "stump bump" immediately after meeting. A photo from the introduction shows Chris holding out his stump for Kirill to feel with his hand.

"They always do a 'stump bump' when they see each other," Doug said.

"Other than that, it's only just two months we've been back so they are still getting to know each other while Kirill settles in to life in Canada. However, he does love to visit Grampy at the office."
