- 1494 days ago -
Bernal has been there many times for JoJo, nursing him through 37 injuries - eight were life-threatening. And at a shark attack, JoJo rammed the shark nose-first, sending the would-be assailant to the ocean floor. "I owe my life to JoJo now," Bernal says.

Thanks Angela for the video and beautiful story.When we realise how close we are to this beautiful intelligent creature we deplore their mistreatment and slaughter by our fellow humans ;despite our shameful treatment of them they still befriend and trust us.Could we be so forgiving?

Simply amazing. We all know dolphins are highly intelligent. Now it seems they also have all the emotions we have. Stupid us to be killing them.

"Within the garden of my heart, where flowers of friendship grow---there are blossoms of remembrance, forget-me-nots so blue---and purple velvet pansies, to tell my thoughts of you---and roses that will always bloom, whatever be the weather---whose fragrance is the memory of days we spent together."

Thanks Angela. Love, Janice Doe Banks
