And You Think You have Odd Friends?

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 08:40

Aggie sent me this, and again I hope it is true. We all need someone. All of us.

an oldie but goodie

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.
Reminds me how wonderful friendship can be.

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…..even if they are a little hairy at times.


  1. I have seen this story and pics on the net some time ago. It appears to be authentic. There are several stories like this on the net of different species adopting and caring for each other, and of course developing a great (albeit unusual) friendship. This reminds me of one I saw of an elephant and a dog who became inseparable.
    For me stories such as these, simply make the world so nice, and it warms the cockles (whatever those are) of my heart.

    Hello Carlitos…I think positive things create positive energy and negative things do the same negativity. So I try to be positive, to spread positive, and to help the world be a more positive place for all of us. Hugs
