Friendship, bonding, and love are forces that have incredible power in this world, but sometimes it is necessary to recognize the right moment when we need to use them.
Thus, they often come to the fore in unexpected situations and have such an impact that, for a moment, the world simply stops and everything falls into place as it should.
Today’s story about an unexpected friendship between a dog and a butterfly will show you what that truly means and what an impact it left on all those people who witnessed it.
Unlikely Friendship That Made The World Stop For A Moment
One beautiful spring day, Rylee Boland and her French bulldog, named Mochi, went out to enjoy nature in the back yard of their home in San Diego.
As always, her rambunctious pup was running around, channeling the tremendous energy that had built up in her during the time spent in the house.
Suddenly, to Boland’s great surprise, she just stopped next to a wall and stood still, stunned and looking at something.
A colorful little stranger occupied the attention of the little Bullie. It was a monarch butterfly, who proceeded to land on their back yard wall to warm his wings in the sun.
Although Mochi is typically tough to control herself, in this case, she was very calm, as if she felt that she would scare her guest if she did some mischief.
“She was so sweet and did not want to hurt it,” Boland told The Dodo. “She is very well-behaved and has the kindest heart.”
This butterfly felt it, too, and it didn’t bother him that Mochi moved her head slightly towards him. It looked like she wanted to pet him, which was adorable.
This heartwarming interaction lasted for about 15 minutes… a time that Boland couldn’t help but take a few pictures and share these touching moments with the world.
This Touching Scene Melted Everyone’s Heart
Maybe there are many more incredible moments such as this one… who knows? But, it always takes the right person in the right place so that everyone can witness something so beautiful.
That person was Mocha’s mom, Rylee, in the back yard of her San Diego home, who didn’t selfishly save the scenes just for herself, but made sure that we could all enjoy them.
The popular Twitter page, WeRateDogs, took care of everything with their post of Mochi and her butterfly friend.
“This is Mochi,” reads the tweet. “He found a garden friend. Would like to know where they got those wings and if maybe they come in his size.”
Our Bullie received a 13 out of 10 dog rating for his gentleness with the monarch butterfly. We would still say that this dog and her butterfly deserve a higher rating, at least 14/10. And, many followers in the comments agree with us.
In addition, the other comments were more than positive, and this scene captured the hearts of many dog lovers as well as all people of goodwill.
Even today, Mochi has not forgotten about her little friend, and in honor of their relationship, she sometimes dresses up like him.
And, then the world seemed to stop again for a moment.
