Long Live Friendship

Another e-mail find from Pauline from paulinesfashions.

After losing his parents, this 3 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. The zoo keepers found an old sick dog on the grounds in the park at the zoo where the orangutan lived and took the dog to the animal treatment center.
The dog arrived at the same time the orangutan was there being treated. The 2 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.
They 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.



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



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



Long 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.

This is a tear jerker! God gave us animals to teach us about the important things in life. This is one to remember!

Beautiful story, Pauline. Reminds me of a program on National Geo about unusual friendships between different species. There was a segment about older dog and young oranguatang - might be this one. They had awesome videos of the two wrestling, orangutang hand feeding the dog or "walking" him on leash (while rolling on the grass). Thank you for sharing :)

this was so great, Pauline. I shared this with James and he enjoyed -- rather than 'endured'-- this post on the computer that I insisted he HAD to see lol It is very heartwarming! Thanks so much :)
