Do you have a special animal in your life? If you do, you probably consider them to be just as much of a part of your family as any human member of your household. When we first bring them into our home, they might be a stranger but they don’t stay a stranger very long. It doesn’t take much time until they are wrapping themselves around our heart and making us love them more and more each day.
One of the things that amaze most pet owners is the ability of their furry friend to show love. In fact, most people would admit that the unconditional love that their pets show is one of the things that endears them to the animal more than any other. In addition to showing love, they also have the ability to show empathy. It seems to be something that is built into them and we see it often. When we are feeling good, they feel good. When we are feeling blue, they feel blue. Sometimes, this empathy is also seen in the animal kingdom in ways that really take us by surprise.
That is why you are going to love these pictures. If you have ever had any doubt about the ability of an animal to show love, it is about to be erased. It all started with a little puppy in the winter.
He was out for a walk with his humans when he was spooked by a loud noise. He began running back and forth and slipped out of his collar.
Once he was free, he started running away and his humans could not catch up with him.
The owners went home after losing their puppy and were hoping he would be safe.
Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse. The temperature dropped at night and the wind was making things even worse. The little puppy was freezing.
The puppy was shivering because of the cold and if help didn’t show up soon, he was not going to make it. Fortunately, things turned out for the best in an unexpected way.
An animal was approaching the cold little puppy. It wasn’t another dog, it was a goose and the puppy was frightened. Even so, he was just too cold and worn out now to run away.
When the goose got to the puppy, it did something nobody could expect. It reached out with its wings and cradled the cold little puppy.
Goose feathers are ideal for keeping you warm. They work well for the geese but they also helped this little puppy.
It wasn’t long before the puppy was warm and had fallen asleep.
The goose kept the puppy warm all night. After the sun came up, some people passing by saw what the goose was doing. The weather was getting warmer but the goose wanted to make sure the puppy was ok.
The people who found this odd couple took some pictures. The goose then opened its wings so they could see the puppy.
At that point, the little puppy woke up from his nap and looked at the goose as if to thank it. It then looked toward the human strangers and one of them picked the puppy up.
The little dog was taken to the volunteers at a local rescue shelter. They shared the story and none of the volunteers had ever heard anything like it. It wasn’t long before the puppy was back with his owners.
One of the rescue volunteers told them about the goose keeping their pet warm. They had to show them the pictures so they would believe it.
It’s wonderful when we hear about the kindness that someone shows. In this case, it was an animal that showed kindness and we can all learn a lesson from it.
