A True Story of Friendship of a Donkey and Horse.
Friendship and Love
This is a true story of Friendship the friendship of two animals. I heard this story from a family member. She has some friends who owned a horse and a donkey. They told her about the love of two best friends.
Do animals feel and have feelings of love? Do they care enough to mourn the loss of someone they love? I believe they do. Dogs show love often for humans and their animal friends.
Here's how this beautiful story goes. When the family would take the horse for a ride or away from the donkey for a short time he would be sad and would bray until they returned him.The two had a very close bond.
The horse was getting old, they knew he had little time left. They explained to the vet about the friendship of the two animals and ask him what they could do when it was time to put the horse down. The vet told them to let him see them bury the horse.
The Final Day.
The day finally came. This was a sad day for all but more so for the best friends. He loved his horse friend so much. They buried him near the donkey and they had him watch as they buried him. He could see they had put his friend in the ground.
The next morning the lady of the house put a bucket of feed out. When she went out later she found the bucket on top of the horse's grave with only half the feed in the bucket.
The day after she had found the bucket on the horse's grave, she put another bucket of feed out for him, and then watched out the window. She saw him eat half the food and take the bucket and place it on the horse's grave. After five days, he stopped putting the feed on the grave. Maybe he realized the horse was not coming back. He must think of his old friend every day
Donkeys are herd animals they easily attach to other animals like the horse. They can become depressed when losing a friend from their herd.
Animals Don't Feel
People say animals don’t feel or love. I believe they do and I think this kind of story proves it.
We had to put our dog, Reno down last week. When Reno was younger our cat was dying we had taken Spencer our cat to the vet. The vet had told us he was a senior citizen and it was time to let him go. He said to give him over night and see if things would get better if not then to bring him in the next day. We laid our beautiful cat down on the rug he always loved to lay on. The next morning my husband was getting ready to take our much-loved cat to the vet. We knew we could do nothing more for him. Reno walked over by the cat and laid his big body beside him and gently laid his head on the cat's stomach. Something he had never done before. He knew the Spencer was sick. It was like he was trying to comfort him. I had never seen anything like it. This was a big dog that seems to never care about the cats in our home. I guess he did care about our Spencer.
Our Springer keeps looking for Reno. He wouldn't lay on Reno's dog bed I tried putting a new blanket on it and still he wouldn't lay on it. Here's a picture of him shortly after I put the blanket on. He puts his body part way on the pillow.
I put Doc's bed underneath Reno's bed. Doc’s bed is the red plaid pillow. Reno's pillow is pink with the brown cover. Doc flipped Reno's bed off of his bed tonight. I just set it up like this today. He is just determined not to sleep on Reno's bed. Reno's bed is the better pillow and I wanted Doc to start using it, but I guess he just won't do it.
