The show offers a look at how animals are able to bond with different species thanks to specific circumstances that cause them to become friends and support each other. It also highlights how intelligent and sensitive certain animals are and how these gifts allow them to bond with fellow animals and humans in ways that make their relationship look a lot like a caring friendship.

It's full of positive messages about animals and wildlife and underscores the many roles animals can play in the lives of humans and other creatures. Animal lovers will thoroughly enjoy it, but even the toughest viewers may have a hard time not smiling at some of what's featured here.
