This is Sweet

a friend sent this to me recently, and I just had to share it:
  
Suryia and Roscoe - Best Of Friends 


Friends forever.....The orangutan was in a rescue and not doing well.  This old hound wandered in absolutely emaciated and the orangutan snapped to, like his buddy had just arrived.  He stayed with the hound night and day until he was well and found a reason to live.  They are now inseparable.  Isn't that sweet?
 


 

Doggy paddle's the order of the day here for the couple who live at the Tigers sanctuary in Myrtle Beach , South Carolina .  
 

Suryia and Roscoe spend hours together every day - they're particularly keen on swimming. 

The two mates see the funny side of most things.  
 

There's always time to chill.  
 

 
A dog's not just a man's best friend, he's an orangutan's too.

  12. This was awesome! I shared it with my son. It reminds me of the story of Owen and Mzee, orphaned hippo and giant tortoise. Books have been published about them.

  21. This is one of my all-time favorite fur-baby stories! The first time I read it and looked at the pictures, I was in tears of joy for these two unlikely friends. If only we humans could get along so beautifully.

    Just wonderful.
