An Odd Couple


Here’s Daisy Mae (at six weeks old) meeting Boss, the big guy.

The pair have been friends ever since. Boss allows Daisy to use his tail as a fly swatter, rest in his shade, or follow at his heels.

If she gets in his way on a ride, he’ll gently push her aside with his nose. If he comes up to her resting in the shade, he’ll put his head down to check on her.
If a pair of different species can get along so well, why do we humans find so much to disagree about?
Go to My World Tuesday to see a cornucopia of fascinating photos.

  1. We could learn a lot from animals! I love your full moon shot below, with the clouds in front of it.

  2. I've asked that question more times than I can count. And the only answer that ever presents itself is that animals are just as happy to want what they have as have what they want.

    Great photos, and a great story.

  11. I hear your voice crying in the wilderness. There is something very odd about humans.

  12. Daisy Mae and Boss set an excellent example of not only getting along with somebody different, but more important making friends.
