Does it get any cuter than this?

My dad sent me this via email and thought it was just so cute that I wanted to share it so from my dad to all of my blog pals.....enjoy.....
Does it get any cuter than this?
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.

An orangutan and a dog are a bit of an odd couple, but why not! This is such a touching story of friendship Jo-anne.

Such a shame, because I couldn't see the pictures either, but the general message is there, and how wonderful is that, that these two lonely creatures found comfort and love with each other. Lovely story.
