OPTICAL ILLUSION ALERT: Do you see a donkey or a penguin? Why a Donkey and Penguin?
Many people comment that a donkey and a penguin seem odd together. Personally, these are my two favorite animals. I put them together simply because I want them to be together in my world:) I believe the best things come from the most unlikely combinations!
I’ll be the first to admit that donkeys and penguins are very different, even living in different parts of the world. Imagine the possibilities when these two get together; this is where the bond blossoms. The humble and often neglected donkey has strengths and weaknesses far different than those of the penguin. Penguins are a little less humble and much more popular with the crowds.
Humble, patient and curious together
The donkey has a reputation for stubbornness. However if you ask anyone that has known a donkey as a friend, they will tell you that is not the case. Donkeys are very soulful, protective and loving. They are hardy workers, and they think before they act. If a donkey is told to do something unsafe, it will likely not do as told. The donkey uses his own judgement and does not succumb to pressure, a trait to be admired.
And penguins? For birds that can’t fly, they sure are popular! They get away with a lot because they are adorable and well-dressed. Behind their cuteness, they are also deeply devoted and social beings. And who can resist that waddle?!
