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
The 2 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 past time,
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.
Long Live Friendship!
They have found more than a friendly shoulder to lean on.
I don't know... Some say life is too short, others say it is too long,
But I know that nothing that we do makes sense if we don't
have Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends who Care...
Even if they are a little hairy at times.
