I don’t know about you but this post made me smile and found it to be uplifting at a time when I can use whatever it takes to keep my tank full. Enjoy as we humans can learn a lot by these odd relationships.
No matter how adorable, dangerous or strange animals are, there is one thing that is for certain: they are better than people. They don’t hold grudges, judge or condescend. Animals don’t ruin your day just because they can. All they want to do is act naturally, and in some cases, when they do, it’s the cutest thing in the world.
Take these 15 unique animal friends, for example. These odd couples couldn’t be more different from one another, yet they embrace their friendship. When do humans show such acceptance and love? We should learn a thing or two about how to live from these adorable animal pals.
1.) Tinni the dog and Sniffer the red fox
These two met in the forests of Norway.
And they hit it off right away.
This real-life fox and hound have been friends ever since.
2.) Torque the dog and Shrek the owl
Solent News and Photos
Torque adopted the owl chick when he was only 6 months old himself, but he became a great mom to the bird.
3.) Bubbles the elephant and Bella the black lab.
Even though Bella is a fraction of Bubble’s size, they are best buds.
They love swimming and playing together.
4.) Fred the Labrador and Dennis the duckling
This duckling’s mom was killed by a fox, but Fred stepped in as a surrogate parent.
5.) Mabel the chicken and her puppies
Mabel became a family pet after being injured. When she came inside, she began looking after the family’s puppies. Aww.
6.) Milo the dog and Bonedigger the lion
Milo took Bonedigger as a cub under his wing, because the little lion had a metabolic bone disease.
Now, the lion is still best friends with Milo and his friends Bullet and Angel.
7.) This stray cat and fox
These two were spotted playing on the shores of Lake Van in Turkey.
Their wild friendship is adorable.
8.) Manni the wild boar piglet and Candy the dog
This wild boar piglet was found starving in a field.
A family rescued him and their Jack Russell Terrier befriended him right away.
An animal photographer caught this real-life Bambi and Thumper playing.
10.) Bea the Giraffe and Wilma the Ostrich
The two met at Busch Gardens on a 65-acre enclosure.
The space is completely open, they just choose to be around each other.
11.) Shere Khan, Baloo and Leo
These three animals were kept by a drug dealer, but were rescued together.
Now, at the rescue, they are three happy and healthy friends.
12.) Kasi the cheetah and Mtani the labrador
Busch Gardens Tampa
These two were raised at Busch Gardens Tampa together.

13.) Suryia the orangutan and Roscoe the blue tick hound
Together, these two live at an endangered species reserve in the US.
One day, Roscoe followed the orangutan and her handlers home. He never left.
14.) Kate the great dane and Pippin the deer
Kate adopted Pippin as a fawn. Eventually, the deer moved back into the forest, but still visits the family from time to time.
15.) Anjana the chimpanzee and tiger cubs
The tiger clubs were flooded out of their enclosure during a hurricane.
Luckily, Anjana and her handler were happy to take care of them.
Humans have always been mesmerized by the beauty of the animals that share this world with us. Because of that, many great photographers dedicate so much time trying to capture them in their best moments. Here are 20 examples of that:

I suppose, since it’s their instinct, these goats climbing around on cliffs aren’t literally insane. It’s just what they do.
I am very rarely at a loss of words but when it comes to attending my first dog memorial I seem to be. I have tried to write this post numerous times but it never came out right. So, what I have done is post pictures of this special day in February, made a video as tribute to my friend/colleague Sandi and a quote Sandi said to me….I was honored and really touched. We have three dogs and will inevitably experience this loss.
Final resting place
This is a special post…please scroll down, take a look at the pictures and read the little story. Then, pay tribute and watch the short video. Best in HD and wide screen. I know many of the readers of this BLOG can relate. The love we have for our pets is a very personal relationship but in the end I think we all feel the same way when they have to leave us.

Explore the wilderness with us… Within the next 10-15 years we will see the last-remaining wilderness area on earth dominated by the demands of growing human populations and undermined by accelerated climate change. When the earth’s last wild places are gone, all we will have are fenced off protected areas dependent on constant intervention to persist and marginalized by the demands of sustained development in emerging markets. Guides, rangers, researchers, ecotourists, photographers, artists and conservationists around the world apply themselves everyday to sharing, studying, photographing, writing about, protecting, conserving and celebrating the “wild” with their guests, co-workers, colleagues, and local communities. These amazing photographs are a window into their world, a world where the lions, elephants, orangutans and leopards still reign supreme and we can dream of that perfect morning in the wilderness…
The Bush Boyes and Ranger Diaries have teamed up to bring you the “Top 25 Photographs from the Wilderness”. These stunning photographs are selected from hundreds of submissions and are intended to bring the beauty, freedom and splendor of the wilderness to as many people as possible around the world. Please submit your best photographs from the wildest places to the Ranger Diaries wall (www.facebook.com/rangerdiaries) and stand a chance of being featured in the “Top 25 Photographs from the Wilderness” published each week. This initiative is all about SHARING and CARING about wild places. Please “Like” this blog post and share this link with as many people as possible… So begins the “Ranger Revolution”… Anyone can be an “honorary ranger” if they share and care about the wilderness, stimulating positive change for wild places around the world… Join the revolution now!

Our Best Friend, the Dog, has been around for thousands of years. When man learned to harness dogs for his use, there began the creation of an unbreakable bond that would grow and last forever.
Through selective breeding by humans, the dog has developed into hundreds of varied breeds, and shows more behavioral and morphological variation than any other land mammal.
