Feel-Good Friday: All Creatures Great and Small

We have some really unusual animal friends to share for this Feel-Good Friday post.  I know we've shared unusual friendships before and we will share them again but this one. . . . well. . .  if Hollywood made this into a movie people would call it totally unrealistic.

The friendship is between Bonedigger and Milo, and if for some strange reason you happen to have both a full grown lion and a wiener dog do not try this at home.

When Bonedigger was born he had a disease that left him slightly crippled. Milo and some other dachshunds at the G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma sensed his disability and began to care for him and protect him. Nearly 500 lbs and five years later, the friendship continues.

The park manager of the G.W. Exotic Animal Park, John Reinke, says this friendship only exists because of the connection they have from Bonedigger's early life. It wouldn't be likely that such a relationship would develop, nor does it seem like it would be smart to try, with a new dog and Bonedigger right now.

Click on the picture below to watch a very (too) short video and Milo and Bonedigger in action. 

One other feel-good fact?  Even though this park was damaged by the storms that affected Oklahoma, it is still housing domestic and wild animals that are homeless because of the storm system. 

 Now go enjoy the rest of your day and remember to follow the example this little wiener dog set for all of us. He helped Bonedigger when he had nothing to gain from that relationship, and now he is best friends with the king of the forest. By forest I mean the G.W. Exotic Animal Park but you get the picture. 

Please look through your pet pictures and find some with your pets holding something in their mouths. Then share them with me and the blog. Email me at .
