Mr. G the Depressed Goat Was Reunited With His Best Friend Jellybean the Donkey


HP – For 10 years, a goat named Mr. G and a donkey named Jellybean lived together in neglect “on the property of a woman who could barely care for herself, let alone the dozens of dogs she hoarded and three barnyard animals,” Animal Place stated. After the creatures were rescued, the Grass Valley, Calif., organization took in Mr. G, but sent Jellybean off to another sanctuary. That didn’t sit well with the goat. “Mr. G refused to eat,” the rescue center stated. “He spent his days lying in a corner of his stall, barely lifting his head. Staff tried every treat -– molasses, sweet grain, apples, wetting down food…nothing worked.” Nothing, that is, until a volunteer offered to make the 14-hour roundtrip journey to bring the burro to Animal Place and reunite Mr. G with his best friend. Watch the video above to see what happened next. Just be sure to have a couple of tissues handy. “Never doubt the depth of emotions other animals possess,” Animal Place wrote. “Mr. G’s grief was as deep and mysterious as a human’s. His joy at reuniting with Jellybean was as beautiful and inspiring as a human’s.” The rescue center says the two will remain together from now on.


Without this video, I think I might have ended it all today. No money, sore as hell, basement is flooded, and the room won’t stop spinning. But maybe we can have happy endings? Mr. G got his best friend back, so perhaps there’s hope for all of us yet?

However, I can’t help but wonder, was Jellybean just as depressed too? What if Mr. G is a stage 5 clinger and Jellybean was like “finallyyyyyy no more Mr. G, I’m free at last!” and then next thing he knows he’s in a truck getting hauled over to Mr. G’s place. So on the other hand, maybe life will always suck after all.
