I love this Story!!!!!!! Take the Time!!!!

After losing his  parents, this 3 year old orangutan was so  depressed he wouldn't eat and didn't respond to  any medical treatments.  The veterinarians  thought he would surely die from sadness..   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 treated.   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 da y  in all their activities.   
hey 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. 
They have found more  than a friendly shoulder to lean on. 
Long  Live Friendship!!!!!!!  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 touch  the hearts of others.......while it  lasts!

  1. TIGERS is part of a notorious private animal breeding network that both the AZA and PETA-- normally not the best of friends-- would like to see shut down. Orangutan babies such as Surya are often inbred and immediately pulled from their mothers to be raised for the entertainment industry. "Doc" Antle (he's no real doctor) is nothing but a showman who makes a lot of money by letting tourists sit and cuddle his orangutans & big cats for a nominal fee. Unfortunately, he managed to get on Oprah, Ellen and NatGeo-- and has probably raked in millions of dollars as a result. Shame on them for not doing their homework in their desperation to attract and entertain viewers! Here's a little more info about him: http://www.911animalabuse.com/00abusers/bhagavandocantle.htm

    TIGERS' videos and photos are everywhere... and it's really sad that this garbage gets so much attention-- especially when the situation in the wild is so desperate. All of TIGERS' vapid platitudes about conservation were literally tacked onto their video clips and promo materials after the fact in order to try to whitewash their sordid reputation. They do nothing for conservation in Borneo. We've checked....

    Orangutans are not clowns! Hopefully there is a special place in hell for people who put orangutans in life vests and throw them in the pool... Surya and Roscoe will not be together very long-- unless Roscoe doesn't mind having his legs and neck broken by an over-exuberant pre-adolescent orangutan who doesn't know his own strength!
