Hund + Sjøløve = Sant (Dog + Sea Lion = True)

Border Collie Vilde meets Sea Lion Amy in Bergen, Norway. The original story is here, and this is a bit of translation c/o Google Chrome:

“The dog has a very strong herding instinct,” says Frits Martem, dog owner and zookeeper at the Bergen Aquarium. “It’s much interesting to study for the dogs. We have seen both crocodiles, seals and penguins, says the owner. But when they approach the pool where the sea lions live, it starts to tingle extra amount of dog body.”

“Sea lions Amy is a little over two years old and is considered young. She is very playful and active. I think this is a meeting between two excited animals with much profit,” says aquarium director Kees Ekeli jokingly.

“Interspecies fun from the lovely city of Bergen. 🙂 Kind regards, Reidun, devoted fan.” Sendt fra min iPhone.
