Animal Friends thread
« on: May 26, 2012, 01:49:33 AM »
As many of you already know, the animal world is not always "red in tooth and claw" and fraught with survival-of-the-fittest nightmare fuel suitable for a riveting National Geography documentary filmed in slo-mo; sometimes there's outright friendship, kindness, and empathy demonstrated by the fur-and-feathers set that puts us bipeds to shame.
So as a corollary to the Funny Animal Videos thread, post your cute, your sad, your outright squee videos of animal BFF's, and celebrate them.

A nice story of dog and human friendship: "Stray dog runs to Tibet with Chinese cyclists"

according to the comments, it's a fully grown female elephant seal (but of course there are some other suggestions).

The cat one is great -- the cat is like W..T..F.. $@&@$%#^

[I think it meets the requirement of this thread, since it's cat meeting a virtual cat].

We've all seen plenty of these, but you still have to marvel at the pure happiness dogs display when they see their friends.. We could learn a lot from them.

A bunch more soldier returns to dog videos here:
http://www.mentalflo...logs/archives/106498

#6 is pretty cool because the dog is scared of the "stranger" at first before he recognizes him.

NOTE:
The only thing that detracts from these videos for me is the fact that there is a dog in my building who will react this insanely to every person he meets, whether its the first time you see him or the 100th.  So.. some dogs are just drama queens..

My dogs go mental if I leave the house for 3 seconds and react like I have been gone for a lifetime lol

Someone really needs to make a satire video of these soldier returning home videos.. Something like: "Soldier returning from store", "Soldier returning from bathroom", etc.

OK, its only 1 animal, and it's not a video (It's a gif, so close enough), but it is cute as hell!
