Dog and Monkey are Best Friends

http://www.maniacwo rld.com/dog- and-monkey- best-friends. html

Billy the dog disappeared during the big floods of 2002 in Caia, Mozambique.
But when he finally emerged from the jungle in 2005, he came carrying a little monkey on his back, Kiko. They were skinny and half dead, but they had made it through all these years.

Billy had defended Kiko from all the dangers of the jungle, including a bunch of savage dogs willing to have Kiko for lunch.

They are now inseparable. Kiko sleeps hugged to Billy. They eat together, do everything together, and they still are unconfident about humans...Only the two of them, forever.

(I can sure understand the "unconfident about humans" feeling. Based on what we know of how dogs are so brutally mistreated in Ethiopia it is not a stretch to think it is just as bad for them in Mozambique)

While at this website there is also a hilarious video of a "Rein-Dog" having a total blast in the snow

Mar. 9 - A village dog adopts a wild monkey and the two become inseparable.

When severe flood waters hit northern Mozambique in 2002, causing misery and extensive damage to property and crops, many animals were left to fend for themselves. But villagers in Caia witnessed a bizarre friendship between a dog and a monkey.

A skinny dog emerged from the bush with a tiny monkey clinging to its back.

The villagers have named the pair Billy and Kiko, and they've been inseparable ever since.

La "amistad peluda" que surgió tras una fuerte inundación

Una de las severas inundaciones que azotaron Mozambique, causaron miseria y extensos daños a bienes y cosechas y también a los animales. Muchos de ellos tuvieron que arreglárselas por sí mismos, incluso cooperar entre especies distintas para sobrevivir.


Billy

Tal es el caso de este perro llamado "Billy", que desapareció en Caia [al norte de Mozambique] durante las inundaciones de 2002.


Kiko aferrado a Billy

Sorprendentemente, el [delgado] perro ha regresado del bosque (!!) y con un amigo montado en el lomo: un pequeño mono al que los aldeanos han llamado "Kiko".


Billy y Kiko

No se sabe a ciencia cierta de qué manera surgió esta curiosa amistad, probablemente mientras luchaban para sobrevivir en la inundación. Sólo ellos saben lo que ocurrió en esos bosques atestados de agua...


�Desde entonces son inseparables!


Billy y Kiko

Billy y Kiko comen, pasean e incluso duermen juntos. Los dos amigos viven ahora con una familia propietaria de un bar, en Caia.


Billy receloso

La pareja evita acercarse demasiado a las personas, pero pasean felizmente por los alrededores.

Billy protege a Kiko contra perros hambrientos de las proximidades que han intentado convertir al pequeño mono en su "desaryuno".
