While humans may be more intelligent than animals, we have a lot to learn from our furry friends when it comes to unconditional love.
Take dogs, for example. When we see someone who doesn’t look, act, or speak the same as us, we tend to focus on those differences. But dogs? They see the potential for friendship — even in other species. Just ask Jose Fumero Hernandez, who recently captured the most precious exchange on camera.
Jose is a professional horse rider and show jumper based in Madrid, Spain, and as such, spends a lot of time around stables. He’s also been lucky enough to witness the bond between a bulldog named Homer and Corelli the horse.
The two are so adorable together that Jose couldn’t resist whipping out his phone and recording. He uploaded the footage to Facebook with the caption, “Brothers from a different mother. Corelli and Homer cuddling in the morning at the stable!” Thousands of hearts melted as they watched Homer snuggling up to Corelli before the horse playfully jerked his head away…
…then brought it back down for the sweetest nuzzle.
The gentle giant always makes sure to keep still as Homer jumps up and hugs his face over and over. Homer doesn’t see a huge, looming critter that could easily stomp on him. He just sees his buddy, whom he adores.
Clearly, the feeling is mutual between these cuties!
Despite all their differences, the one thing they do share in common trumps everything else: their love for each other. The world would live in harmony if everyone followed their example. Share these sweet friends with an animal lover in your life!
