Warning! This is lovely - but a tear jerker!
« on: October 18, 2017, 11:12:58 pm »
Hi all
Had this on a facebook feed - hope the link works as I'm not great with this type of thing! This made me cry - so a warning that it'll at least bring a lump to your throat (if you're not a psychopath!) I went to Monkey World over the school summer holidays and we had some great interactive moments with a couple of the chimps - so maybe this is why the clip has resonated with me? But also I feel it does really demonstrate the bond between humans and animals which I find comforting. Hope it works - hope you all get something from it  :-* :-*

You might have already seen it - but for those that haven't it really is very touching..

Well, it is sad - but death is a part of life and she was 59, I took comfort from the fact he went to see her and she recognized him and they said their final goodbye for now's! It's quite heartwarming and really goes to show how human's and animals can bond and have lifelong and meaningful relationships. But I did cry when I watched it - you can't not really  :-*
