True Friends

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 veteranarians 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.

We should all be so lucky as to find this level of companionship at least once in our lives.

All Gods creatures should be able to see beyond their own small persona as these two have. Difference is in biological form and custom only. Look at their eyes and see the comfort and peace. We should all be so lucky as to have such friends. The dog does know this creature will outgrow, outlive and possibly inadvertently harm him but stays nonetheless. Loyalty and love are not just a human trait. Thanks and keep the dog safe the Orang is a child in all ways.
