Many people comment that a donkey and penguin make an odd match, and that is exactly the point!

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.


Donkeys have 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 donkeys are told to do something unsafe, they will likely not do as told. Donkeys use their own judgement and do 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?!

Together, the donkey and penguin are a curious and unstoppable duo.  As long as they accept and appreciate each other’s differences, they bring strength and comfort to one another.
