Attachment in Action
“Emotions are the gifts of our ancestors. We have them and so do other animals. We must never forget this.” — Marc Bekoff
Here are some fun videos illustrating how relationships come in all shapes and sizes. It is emotions that bind us…
Best Friends – a kid, a dog and a puddle
Elephants Never Forget
The Orangutan and the Hound Dog
Tara, the Elephant, and Bella, the Dog
Love knows no bounds.
Tortoise helps out a friend.
The lyrics of Lean on Me, that accompany this video, says it all: “You just call on me brother, when you need a hand; We all need somebody to lean on; I just might have a problem that you’d understand; We all need somebody to lean on; If there is a load you have to bear; That you can’t carry; I’m right up the road; I’ll share your load; If you just call me; Call me if you need a friend.”
Family – A Duck, Several Dogs, and Humans
Individuals who make up your family are not all biological. You can create your own trusted circle of animals – human or otherwise – with whom to share your life. These special connections can help us cope with the normal stressors of life and contribute to our community.
