Bonedigger The Lion And Milo The Wiener Dog Best Buddies At The Zoo: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Bonedigger and Milo are truly BFFs  despite their noticeable differences.

Bonedigger happens to be a ferocious carnivore, a 500-pound lion and the undisputed King of the Jungle.


Milo, on the other hand, is an 11-pound dachshund who could hardly strike fear in the heart of any living creature.

But the two  `both five years old` were introduced to each other when they were very young, and they`ve been all but inseparable ever since."


I love walking, jogging or just plain walking with my pooch Mandy; she is this man`s best friend. But Mandy also likes to spend quality time with my two cats, Ebony and Tico. Mandy allows the cats to nibble at her food, play with her tail, and even sleep next to her.

A dog being friendly with a house cat is one thing, and a canine being chummy with a lion is a horse of a different color.

Watch in amazement as the ferocious looking Bonedigger allows the tiny pooch to clean her teeth! These unlikely pals are a big hit in their enclosure at the Garold Wayne Zoo in Oklahoma.

We have much to learn about friendship and love from the animal kingdom.
