Disabled Dog Was Sad Because No Dogs Would Play With Him. Now Watch How This Donkey Cheers Him Up.

We’ve all had to go through some type of growing pains back when we were young, but a few of us had it worse than others, a lot worse. For a one year old Anatolian Shepherd named Kolina, her growing pains were literally just that. She was born with a spinal condition common in larger breed dogs that’s known as wobbler syndrome, which makes it difficult and painful for her to move. Dog’s who suffer from the disease have compressed spinal cords and sometimes the nerve roots are also compacted tightly together as well.

This is what causes them to experience neurological issues and leads to stiff, painful neck aches. It also causes dogs to walk in a shaky, wobbly manner, while some of them are unable to walk at all. For Kolima, standing is a lot of work and quite painful, so she prefers to lay on her side and crouch low most of the time. Her health problems and difficulties with walking, sitting and standing, and just moving around in general, caused her further issues in terms of her social life.

While most other puppies her age were romping around, chasing each other, and play fighting, Kolima had to sit out. Her wobbliness kept her from doing normal dog things and that made making new friends hard for her. However, life is not as sad and depressing as it may sound for her all thanks to Paolo, Kolima’s best friend in the whole entire world!

As you can see here, Paolo is a donkey and he loves his Anatolian Shepherd friend to pieces! According to the pairs owner, Felice Caputo, Paolo has always been the typical donkey, which is to say he’s “mischievous and stubborn.” When the six year old donkey first met Kolina he barely glanced her way, but then when he saw that she was disabled, something in him changed.

Rather than ignore or write her off, he greets her warmly and plays with her every single day now. The cute couple absolutely adore each other and when you see them play together, you’ll understand the uniquely special bond they share. It’s simply heartwarming and awesome to see, and it’s a true testament to the power of friendship.

He Was Taking A Nap On The Ground When A Cheetah Appeared And Did The Strangest Thing.

Working with wildlife is both risky and rewarding. It can be a difficult job to capture the best pictures of these animals, as well as tiring. One man never expected this would happen when he decided to lie in the grass for a nap.

Dolph Volker is a volunteer at the Cheetah Experience in South Africa, where the population of these big cats are being preserved. They can be extremely shy creatures who don’t take very well to human interruption in their daily lives. But Dolph has been working for months to gain the confidence of these animals, and all of his hard work has paid off.

Take a look at this video!

When he lies in the grass, one of his best cheetah friends comes over and starts licking the side of his neck. Soon the cheetah settles down for a nap beside Dolph and passes out for the rest of the day, purring away. Share away, people!

Swan Mom Adorably Carries All 8 Of Her Babies Under Her Wing While Swimming

Richard Meston was at Bicton Park Botanical Gardens near Sidmouth, Devon in England, when he came across a mother swan and her babies.

The cygnets were splashing in the water around their mom. When one started to get tired, he made his way up onto his mom’s back. The mom didn’t seem to mind, and even gave them a nudge to help him up.

Soon after, the other babies followed suit. One by one, they each waddled up their mom’s back and sought shelter under her wing. Once they were all settled in, the mom put down both of her wing’s on top of them as if she were protecting them from falling.

She kept looking back at them to make sure they were all still there. Then she swam across the pond with them.

“Mute swans are very protective of their young and will vigorously defend them from any threats,” said Julia Newth, of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. “But this one is definitely showing the gentler side of her instincts in giving her young a lift on her back.”
