THIS IS SOO CUTE!

VIRAL VIDEO YOU HAVE TO SEE!

JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, MISTER G, A RESCUED GOAT IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WAS INCONSOLABLE. EVER SINCE HE WAS RESCUED FROM A HOARDER.

Pathetic, pitiful, forlorn, depressed.

MISTER G JUST DID NOTHING BUT MOPE AROUND AND REFUSED TO EAT.

HE WASN'T SICK, SO IT WAS A MYSTERY UNTIL STAFF LEARNED MR. G HAD A LONG LOST FRIEND - A SMALL DONKEY NAMED JELLY BEAN.

ANIMAL CONTROL SAID HE WAS RAISED WITH JELLY BEAN AND CRIED A LOT WHEN THEY WERE SEPARATED.

SO GET THIS, A VOLUNTEER DROVE 14 HOURS TO BRING JELLY BEAN UP FROM SO-CAL.

THE YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE REUNION NOW HAS MORE THAN A MILLION VIEWS. Return to index of stories...


GOAT AND DONKEY-SOTVO


He was suddenly up, lively. You could see his nostrils flaring. His eyes lighting up when she's being unloaded.

ONCE THEY FINALLY REUNITED, NOT ONLY DID MISTER G PERK UP, BUT HE STARTED EATING AGAIN.
