Weekend Video Diversion: The Orangutan and the Hound

November 21, 2009

This video is not new, but it’s probably the best example of an unlikely friendship that I’ve seen and one of my all-time YouTube favorites. It serves as a great reminder that we can find friendship in many shapes, sizes and places. Enjoy the rest of the weekend…

Hi Tim,
I laughed out loud when the orangutan wrapped his arms over his head and fell backwards, directly backwards. Man, I’ve felt that way on too many occasions!

I loved this, Tim. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything else like it! It’s amazing how much joy I felt from watching this – pure joy.

“…find friendship in many shapes, sizes and places.” You’re right on, Tim!

Have a great weekend and thanks for another great diversion! I’ve have really come to look forward to your weekend diversion posts. Thanks so much!

It’s great that you recognize the companionship and friendship that us animals can bring.
I want to hang out with the dog and orangutan, too!

What a great example of what really matters in life! It like pure joy watching them together! (and I haven’t seen this before – so awesome!!)

Hi Tim,

Amen to that…friendships do come in all shapes, sizes and colors. This video did an awesome job of displaying it. It was a joy to watch. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Hi Lori: I agree with you…I’ve never seen anything like it, either. Truth be told, I’m a sucker for Orangutans…they might be my favorite “wild” animal. But these two are special…especially watching that little smile at the end from Surya. Thanks for your friendship and stopping by…hope the rest of your weekend is great!

Hi Pearl: I bet Surya and Roscoe would love to hang out with you, too. I really think pets are good things for us humans…you keep us grounded.

Hi Lance: I know what you mean about the joy you felt watching this…among other things this video is a great reminder about the importance of friendship. Thanks for stopping by and commenting…hope the rest of your weekend is great!

Nadia: I’m glad you enjoyed this…it reminds me also, that I should be watching more Animal Planet type of programming because it is fascinating. Thank you for your support and friendship and have a great weekend!
