  1. What a sweet story. Companionship is vital–whatever your species. As Henry Brooks Adams noted, “Accident counts for much in companionship as in marriage.” :-)

  2. I just read it in adinparadise!!!! I am so not kidding! And then it’s you, the same story in my RSS feed! I love that goose!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  3. Don’t you just love this Goose!

  4. I have fallen for a goose..and I haven’t even had coffee yet. Love before coffee – it’s a good way to start the day.

  5. I saw this story on TV a couple days ago and enjoyed it. Nice to see again. Soul mates. (smile) Thanks for sharing.


  6. What can one say, David??? That was absolutely delightful..

    • Wasn’t though Carolyn! Felt like I was watching a segment on Charles Kuralt’s Sunday Morning program.

      • Not being an American, David, I had to go a’googling. Youtube had a video of Charles Kuralt’s final Sunday Morning Program. On it was featured the flight of the Snow Goose. The video was very touching; particularly toward the end; a man overcome with loss. The ‘On the Road’ stories must have been very heart warming….

      • I haven’t seen that segment on the Snow Goose, but Sunday Morning is something special. It has that pulse slowing, peaceful feeling. Not sure how they’ve managed to retain that feeling all these years, but they have. I will check out the Snow Goose. Thanks for pointing me to it.

  7. A wonderful way to start my Sunday. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming story.

  8. Animals are amazing creatures and love seeing people do good for others.

  9. Animals always throws a surprise to me.

  10. I love it, David. So glad you reblogged it, so that more people can enjoy. :)

  11. I adore this story… Makes me sniffly every time I see it. :)

    • Sounds like this clip made its rounds and it was the first time I’ve seen it. Glad that I did. It is one of those stories that you would keep coming back to. Makes me wonder – are that together again today?

      • I actually looked to see if they’re still together, since the park’s construction and relocation of the animals… And Maria’s in the children’s zoo! She’s uber-famous, and even has a FB page. :) And I’m SURE still visited daily by her love.

      • Wow. Maria a rock star! Thanks for sharing. Great story getting better.

  12. It’s all about love and connection. :-) What a lucky man…and what a lucky goose.

  13. Sweet!
