Forbidden Love: Penguin And Pup Play 'Hard-To-Get' (VIDEO)

By Serge Bielanko |

Star-crossed lovers.

So, I ran across this video on Jezebel the other day and right away I knew in my guts that I was going to have to share it with my fellow pet people.

Most of us know that things usually get pretty comical when two animals/birds/fish are separated by some sort of human barrier that they don’t quite understand. It’s a collision of galaxies in a way, the absolute wild kingdom smashing headlong into the wildly altered world of man-made walls and partitions and the like.

Case in point: these two critters.

I ended up watching this video about fifty times just because I can’t ever get tired of this dog’s earnestness. I mean, this guy wants to meet this penguin now and he is having a difficult time coming to terms with the aquarium glass keeping him from the hug of a lifetime.

And Mrs. Penguin is not exactly uninterested either.

Between each of their desperate attempts to connect with the other it’s probably a good thing that neither of them had a sledgehammer or a half-stick of dynamite handy, otherwise there would have been some mopping going on that day.

In fact, it would seem to me that if it weren’t for that dumb thick glass, these two might just lock eyes and arms and never see the rest of the world again.

Love at first sight?

That’s hard to say.

But then again…
