Coyotes And Badgers: A Friendship Like No Other

It has come to the worlds attention that coyotes and badgers are often in some sort of partnership when it comes to hunting. 

It's a pretty rare phenomenon to see two different species of predators working together to get their next meal. 

According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, "Studies have shown that this unusual relationship is beneficial for both species. The coyote can chase down prey if it runs and the badger can dig after prey if it heads underground into its burrow systems."

Who knew?! Pretty amazing to see these two work together! And thanks to the Peninsula Open Space Trust, a recent video of the duo, on the hunt, has come out. 

Twitter user, Russ McSpadden, shared the video and sparked a thread about this wholesome friendship that users have come to love.

Blind Bison Makes First Friend After Years Of Solitude

A blind bison named Helen has been roaming the fields of Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for years, all alone. This was due to the fact that Helen had nervous disposition, she purposely would separate herself from other animals. 

Until now. Oliver, a young Jersey calf has fought his way into Helen's heart with his gentle and kind manner. Since being introduced to Oliver, Helen and Oliver have been inseparable. They do everything together, so much so, that Oliver's fur has even changed in shade to match Helens!

Gwen Jakubisin, at the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, told USA Today, "The change in [Helen's] demeanor is incredible, her joy is palpable."

With around 250 farm animals currently at the sanctuary, Helen has slowly started to reach other to other animals and is extending her social circle -- all thanks to her new courageous friendship with Oliver. 

Helen has also become something of a surrogate mum for Oliver. Jakubisin said, "Betsy (Oliver's mom) usually drops Oliver off at "daycare" and roams around while Helen watches over him for the rest of day, and she's cool with that. I catch them grooming each other, which is amazing because I don't think Helen has ever had that opportunity to express that motherly instinct before." 

We all need love. No matter what shape or form it comes in. And Helen and Oliver is simply further proof of that. 

Here's to you, Helen and Oliver! We adore your unlikely friendship and have learned from it.

Abandoned Newborn Giraffe And A Guard Dog Become Best Friends

Friendships have no boundaries, not even among different species. 

An abandoned newborn giraffe, named Jazz, was in a dire situation when he was first rescued a week ago by wildlife workers in South Africa.

But thankfully, Jazz was pulled out of a coma and is on the road to recovery -- all thanks to his new best friend friend Hunter, a guard dog at the wildlife rehab center. Under the attentive licks of Hunter, Jazz has been able to to gain back strength. 

According to a Facebook post by The Rhino Orphanage, Hunter is equally taken with Jazz, as Jazz is with him. Hunter, who also assists in anti-poaching efforts has reportedly, "fallen head over heels" for Jazz.  

"Just when we thought it couldn't get any cuter, sweeter and more heart-warming, this happened," the center wrote about a video (shared below) of the pair nuzzling each other, adding that the bond between the animals is "astonishing."

Hunter, is a Belgian Malinois, and "stays in the room all day with Jazz."Hunter doesn't even allow his brother Duke to come close to Jazz, according to the center. Hunter was so upset when Jazz was in a coma that he "didn't want to eat."

We're happy Jazz and Hunter have each other.

"In this story of kindness, friendship, and the fear of being left behind, a friendship takes flight as a mouse that wants to fly and an injured bird cross paths. 

Final film from the School of Visual arts. I directed, background painted, animated, and did about half of the cleanup/coloring myself! The rest was handled by my awesome team in the credits. 

Thank you to Colin Andrew Grant for the fantastic score, and thanks to SVA for the two grants that helped me produce this film! And thank you all so much for watching. 

This was a huge labor of love for me, and I'm so glad I finally get to share it!"

This Adorable Love Story Between 5- Year-Old Boy And His Dog Has An Important Message

If you ever need proof that dog is man's best friend, look no further than Instagram page of  Reagan the labradoodle and "Little Buddy"—his family's foster child—who do everything together. Reagan was adopted by Oregon resident Sandi Swiridoff when he was just 11 months old. Swiridoff was overjoyed when the puppy—a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle—instantly hit it off with another special 11-month-old: her foster grandchild. From snuggling in bed and throwing miniature pajama parties to strolling outside and lounging by the lake, the duo does everything together—and, with their matching clothes and costumes, they do it in style. Understandably overwhelmed with cuteness, Swiridoff began documenting their heartwarming bond on her Instagram page, Reagandoodle. Now, five years later, the account has over 490,000 followers. Its popularity has also given way to an Etsy shop, where Swiridoff will be selling her still-in-progress picture book about Reagan's relationship with Little Buddy. The book is set to bring attention to the the importance of foster care, and proceeds will benefit Foster Parents' Night Out, a non-profit organization.
