(Not sure why the pictures didn’t show up when the first time this posted, but let me try this again and sorry for the weirdness.)

I looked into this and found it happened two years ago at a Russian zoo.  Since I found it in a number of places on the internet, I don’t think I’m violating anyone’s copyright to share these pictures, which are too cute not to share.  (Thanks, Ann, for sending them to me yesterday.)  If you’d like to see thirty pictures instead of just these, please click on this link, http://thechive.com/2012/01/10/a-baby-chimpanzee-is-adopted-by-a-mastiff-dog-amazing-30-photos/.

The mother chimp for some reason wouldn’t accept her baby, so one of the zoo’s employees took the baby chimp home.  His mastiff had recently had a litter (of puppies, naturally) and just adopted the chimp as one of her own.  The third picture, of the chimp eating with the puppies, maked me laugh out loud!  If you aren’t smiling, laughing or going, “Awwwwwww” by the end, (or all of the preceding at different times) you are way too hard-hearted and need to lighten up and get a life!!  :-)

Enjoy!
