Have a lovely day!

The lesson of love from our dogs just keeps rolling along.

Neighbour Dordie had the following sent to her in an email and, subsequently, passed it on to me.

I share it with you and hope that it brightens your day.


After losing his parents, this three-year-old orangutan was so depressed he wouldn’t eat and didn’t respond to any medical treatments.  The veterinarians thought he would surely die from sadness.

ATT00001The zoo keepers found an old sick dog on the grounds in the park at the zoo where the orangutan lived. They took the dog to the animal treatment center; the dog arriving at the same time that the orangutan was there being treated.

ATT00002The two lost souls met and have been inseparable ever since. The orangutan found a new reason to live and each always tries his best to be a good companion to his new-found friend. They are together 24-hours-a-day in all their activities.

ATT00003They  live in Northern California where swimming is their favorite past-time, although Roscoe (the orangutan) is a little afraid of the water and needs his friend’s help to swim.

ATT00004Together, they have discovered the joy and laughter in life and the value of friendship.

ATT00005They have found more than a friendly shoulder to lean on.

ATT00006Long Live Friendship!
I don’t know… some say life is too short, others say it is too long.

But, I know that nothing that we do makes sense if we don’t touch the hearts of others… While it lasts!

May you always have – Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends who Care… Even if they are a little hairy at times.


Shared with you with the fondest love of Jean and me and all our furry friends.

      1. Yes that is the reason Paul.. I changed it.. simple for WP as My private one I used was getting swamped and I was missing important emails.. in the back long of hundreds.. If ever you email me. please use the one you will have logged that you used before.. 🙂 All my comments have been held where ever I am been today.. 🙂


  1. Inter-species friendship like this always moves me so much. This particular story is both wonderful and amazing. The love that these two share…. Did you know that their story has been made into a book. I’ve bought it for my (future) grandchildren.


  2. A perfect friendship, a hound and an orangutan. I looked at the pics closely and in each photo both animals have the same expression in the face and in the eyes. Perfectly mirrored. Pictures and friendships don’t get any better. I find this so interesting.


  3. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely story Paul. There are no words I can say. So beautiful to see them together. I hope we all human beings who are all one can see and understand the animals and nature. Then it would be such a wonderful world instead of fighting and creating hell on this beautiful earth.


    1. Welcome! Yes, we share your dream as do many others. Nature can be tough, perhaps even cruel, but we humans have a capacity to create, as you say, a real hell. Thank you so much for your reply.
