We humans aren’t the only ones capable of loving or making a bond. In fact, “If the kindest souls were rewarded, animals would outlive us all.”
If one hasn’t loved an animal in their life, their soul remains unawakened. The connection between both species is very important. However, the relationships and bonds formed within the animals can be even more powerful.
We humans can learn a lot from them as they love unconditionally. They don’t judge or discriminate. They just love.
A fascinating story about a relationship between an orphaned turtle and rescue dogs has been revolving around the internet. The Rocky Ridge Refuge shared the story a couple of years ago.
The young turtle was roaming alone on a river stream when an individual tracked her down, rescued her, and took her home to feed and look after her. The kind person hoped to find her loved ones.
However, as the days passed, there was no sign of her family or any other turtle at all. The idea of adopting the little one still worried him a little.
She had pups of different breeds in his home, and she was afraid of their reaction to the turtle.
Se gently placed the turtle near the pups and their reaction was unexpected. To his astonishment, they were not only welcoming but were delighted to have such company and happily accepted her.
Some of the puppies also belonged to known potentially dangerous breeds, yet they showed love to the cute addition. They quickly went beyond accepting her and included her in the family.
The rescue dogs and the orphaned turtle got along pretty well and their bond has become inseparable over the years.
The puppies soon started to mature, but they still cared for Crouton like he was one of them.
