Librarian Gets a Friend

Postby Tonyblack » Sat Oct 17, 2009 1:45 am

Friends forever .... The orangutan named Grant was in a rescue mission, depressed and not doing well. This old hound wandered in and the orangutan snapped to -- as if his buddy had arrived. He stayed with the hound night and day until he was well. In the whole scenario, the orangutan found a reason to live. They are now inseparable.

Image
Where you lead, I will follow. Best friends --Grant the orangutan and Roscoe the Blue Tick hound.

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


Image
Grant and Roscoe spend hours together every day - they're particularly fond of swimming.


Image
The two mates see the funny side of most things.



Image
There's always time to chill.


Image
For once, Roscoe's letting it all hang out.


Image
Grant, the three-year-old orangutan goes everywhere with Roscoe.


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

Aww that's so cute! Although, Grant looks a bit possessive. I wouldn't want to be there when Roscoe decides he needs more space :shock:
