March 8, 2010

We’re thinking of getting Pooker an orangutan. Also an elephant.

    I’d have loved to watch the video, but National Geographic says that it has been blocked from my country on copyright grounds. Huh? So, of course, now I’m curious. I bet Pooker would love an orangutan and an elephant.

      Oh no, Kate! It’s a sweet story about an orangutan (riding the elephant in the screen shot) from a rescue organization who falls in love with a wayward hound. They adore each other, and the orangutan makes all the silly faces and hugs the grinning dog, and makes you melt. If I find another source for it I’ll let you know.

    I have seen this before, but do not tire of watching it. I don’t know which I like more, the hound or the orangutan. The relationship between them makes one think.

      I know! They didn’t even blink, just fell in love with each other.

    aww! Such sweetness! I loved watching Suriya rolling and spinning with the hound. Wouldn’t life be better if we humans moved like that? Kisses to you, the boy and the hound.

      Right back atcha! (The boy says he wants an orangutan to ride on his back while skis…)

    how cool… what a great example of animals at play… showing it to my zoology class today!

      How cool, Wayne! I hope it makes them smile as much as it did for us.

    so sweet, monkey biscuits and all!

      the monkey biscuits might be my favorite part, next to the camera-facing hug.

    decided to show it to all my classes as a feel good end to their learning. ;’)
