Long-distance Friendship Between A Dog And A Donkey Is Maintained

My name is Buster. He lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his family, but a precious part of his small puppy heart is elsewhere.

It all began while Buster was on holiday on Ireland’s Dingle peninsula with his father, Traolach Buachalla. The small puppy met someone special while strolling to the beach – a lovely donkey named Jack who was hanging out in a neighboring field.

He and Jack clicked right away.

“They were just very nice to one other the first time they met,” Buachalla told The Dodo.

That beautiful, unusual meeting, on the other hand, wasn’t meant to be a one-time event.

Since then, Buster and Buachalla have returned to the peninsula for vacation almost every year. And, sure enough, every time they drive by the field, Jack dashes over, and the dog-donkey feud resumes where it left off.

Buachalla recorded it for his pals back home, who couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

 

Despite the distance and infrequency of their meetings, Buster and Jack appear to have found a way to keep their relationship alive.

Buachalla described it as “extremely sweet.” “I’m not sure whether this is typical of donkeys, but my dog seldom shows as much interest in other animals as he does with Jack.”

Jack had a surprise for Buster this year: his new donkey companion, Jill.

“These are real people’s names,” Buachalla explained. “I double-checked with their proprietor!”

Jill and Buster were also a good match. (She’s probably heard all there is to know about him.)

 

We want to continue the tradition for many years to come.
