    Boy, they just couldn’t get enough of each other. They obviously had alot to say on a first date!

    Uh… orcas eat seals. Dog barks and seal barks sound similar. Their heads are shaped similarly. I kind of doubt that was a playful gesture. Possibly it was… but I wouldn’t let my dog play with an orca whale.

    I looked more into it and it turns out this whale was “Luna.”

    He was stranded as a baby and grew up without other orcas. He sought out companionship from humans and other animals. So he was being playful with that dog.

    Sadly, Luna was hit by a boat and killed. But the websites above tell his story with interesting details.

    I think the Orca fell “in love” with the doggie!

    I’m surprised the dog didn’t jump into the water! If it were my dog, I think I’d be having a “heart attack”! Cute to watch.

    Oh, Elaine — that’s terrible.
