Throughout our lives, we are going to have many friends. Some of those friends are going to stick around for a lifetime and we can tell them anything, realizing that they would never divulge any secret information. On the other hand, other friends are going to come and go so quickly that they can really only be referred to as an acquaintance. When you really stop to think about it, however, the first friends that we often have are members of our family. They are siblings, and if you have a brother or sister, you realize that things don’t always go perfectly, but there’s a lot of love there underneath.
Perhaps that is why our lives are touched so much by the following story. It’s about a relationship that took the people that witnessed it for themselves by surprise. Of course, we realize that human siblings often have a very close bond but did you realize that the same bond can also exist among animals? We don’t often see it, because animals are typically separated from each other when they are very young. They were just getting to form that bond when suddenly, it was taken away from them.
