Friday morning smile!

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 two 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 pastime, 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!!!!!!!
