After losing his parents, this 3 year old orangutan was so  depressed he wouldn't eat and didn't respond to  any medical treatments.  The veterinarians thought he would surely die from sadness.   The zoo keepers found an old sick dog on  the grounds in the park at the zoo where the  orangutan lived and took the dog to the animal  treatment center.  The dog arrived at the  same time the orangutan was there being treated.   The 2 lost souls met and have been  inseparable ever since. 

The orangutan  found a new reason to live and each always tries his best to be a good companion to his new found friend.  They are together 24 hours a day in all their activities.  

They live in  Northern California where swimming is their favorite pastime, although Roscoe (the orangutan) is a little afraid of the water and needs his friend's help to swim. 

That was a funny story!

Together they have discovered the joy and laughter in life and the value of friendship.

They have found more than a friendly shoulder to lean on.. 

 Long  Live Friendship!

True story:  (this from a friend) -- On the subject of "half" when I was in home ec in 8th grade, I remember we each had to add an ingredient to a cake, and then the cake would bake for the next class to eat.  My classmate Cheryl next to me had to add 1/4 tsp of salt (see where this is going) so she added two 1/2 tsps. Glad we didn't get that cake.
