If any of you got the midweek blues, here are some photos and a little story that will have you feeling warm and fuzzy in no time. Recently, some residents from a city near the Kaveri River in southern India saw a sight they'd never seen before, and luckily for the rest of us, someone captured the moments on camera. The photos are of a wild monkey, which, after having found an abandoned puppy, decided to adopt the little creature as its own. Too sweet!

When locals noticed that a rhesus macaque that they'd see around was suddenly walking around with a little puppy, they were left scratching their heads. But their curiosity turned into amazement when they saw the monkey taking care of the helpless pup, even guarding and protecting her from other wild dogs. As it became clear what the deal was, pedestrians started to leave food and water for the unusual parent and child, and what the monkey did with the food touched the hearts of everyone who witnessed. Just as a caring mother or father would, the wild monkey would feed the pup first, sometimes even letting the dog drink or eat whatever was there. That is what you call unconditional love.

Unfortunately for now, but probably better off in the long run, the little puppy was taken to a local shelter to be put up for adoption. No doubt this loving monkey and the little doggy are missing each other right about now, but maybe they'll bump into each other again someday. If and when that happens, I know of a monkey and a dog in India that'll be crying rivers bigger than the Kaveri that day.

Pure love!
