The close friendship of this “couple” makes many people admire. Do you have a soulmate like this?
Over the past 8 years, even though they haven’t seen each other often, the dog Gunner and the Delta dolphin have always maintained their close friendship with ‘kisses’.
Notably, this is not the only emotional moment between these two animals of different species. It is known that the couple has been friends since childhood and up to now, this friendship has lasted for 8 years.
Gunner – Golden Retriever puppy first met his Delta dolphin friend when he was only 8 weeks old at the Florida dolphin research center. Unlike other hyperactive dogs, Gunner does not run or jump but just lies still and watches the dolphins swim.
Attracted by Gunner’s calm attitude, Delta, who is a friendly dolphin, immediately came closer to get acquainted and even brought toys to play with Gunner.
Faced with Delta’s goodwill, Gunner quickly responded and learned how to play with his dolphin friend by grabbing the toys he was given.
8-week-old Gunner and 4-year-old Delta became best friends from the first time they met.
Marie Blanton – senior trainer at the center and Gunner’s owner, shared that she and her colleagues tried to build close relationships with dolphins to study their personalities. That’s why she wants to expose these dolphins to as many different things as possible, including her new 8-week-old dog who accompanies her to work every day.
Two friends were excited to see each other.
Marie Blanton said: “The first time I brought Gunner to the port, I thought he would bark loudly or show excitement when meeting dolphins, but he did the opposite. He lay down to watch and was extremely calm. This is what attracted me.” attract Delta’s attention.”
Since that first meeting, every time Marie Blanton brought Gunner over, Delta the dolphin would appear at the dock immediately with his toys. The two animals began to rejoice and play together.
And when he was tired, Gunner would lie on the dock and watch Delta play.
After this, the time Gunner spent following his mistress to work gradually shortened. He only comes to the center a few times a month, but the friendship between them has not diminished.
Now, when Gunner is 8 years old and Delta is 12 years old, that friendship still holds strong even though they don’t see each other often. Ms. Marie Blanton confirmed that the couple always recognized each other immediately and that Delta was always the first dolphin to greet Gunner.
