This is one of the cutest relationships I have ever seen. 😊😍

We all know the story of Mary and her little lamb. A girl and her trusty fleeced companion. As the story goes, wherever Mary went…well, you know the rest. That sheep would follow Mary anywhere she did go, but what if I told you that dedicated companions f the animal world were not limited to sheep?

Cheryl Allison was enjoying a lovely day in the park when fate flapped its wings at her.

Out of nowhere, a large goose ran up to Cheryl. I don’t know about you, but if that were me, I would be running in the other direction. Nothing against geese, but strange animals running at you can be alarming, to say the least. Cheryl however, saw the opportunity to make a new friend.

A self-professed “city girl”, Cheryl didn’t know what to do with her new pal.

She did what any animal-lover would do- have a good ol’ chat. After honking with Honk for a minute, Cheryl tried to leave. Honk, on the other hand, had other plans.

Honk continued to follow Cheryl, wherever she went.

He even followed her into the road, where she had to stop cars in order to prevent him from getting run over. Eventually, she had nothing to do but lead him back to the park. Finally, Cheryl got away, but don’t worry, she came back.

Cheryl would continue to visit Honk in his park.

Honk would continue to receive visits from his favourite human, but not without a touch of trouble. When Cheryl would find Honk, he would often be wandering into the road. Cheryl began returning to the park to collect trash and litter in order to make it a better home for her beaked bestie and all the other wildlife there.

Allison realised that Honk is not your average goose.

Honk is a domestic goose, meaning that he can’t fly.

It’s possible that Honk was once a pet or domesticated farm animal. Sadly, this can happen often. Families get pets such as ducks or geese and when they finally get bored of them they’re often abandoned in parks or ponds.

Allison knew that she would have to help Honk out for good.

Cheryl found a wonderful new home for Honk, the Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. Here Honk would be taken care of, kept safe and be fed. Not only that, but he’d be around other domesticated birds, just like him!

Turns out, Honk is quite the stud.

Honk quickly made his own gaggle of friends, Gandy, Beth and Brenda. There even formed something of a love triangle among the companions. Eventually, however, it seemed a true relationship formed as Honk fell head-over-heels for Brenda.

In fact, the two even got “married”.

Well, at least as married as two geese can get. The event was hosted to raise money for the shelter, and let’s just say that the whole affair seemed adorable to say the least.

Now Honk lives a happy life.

But don’t worry, he still gets regular visits from his best human friend Cheryl. Together, they raise awareness for mistreated and abandoned domestic birds and have even released a coloring in and activity book.
