Random Hearts: Dolphins!!

So if the pineapple post didn't give it away then perhaps this dolphin post will let on that Miss t-w-h and Miss Me are in Hawaii!! 

Relaxing in the sun, enjoying the beach, eating the yummy golden pineapples.... And watching the dolphins frolic and play! 

Dolphins are so amazing because they are so human, you can't take your eyes off them because they are so smart and playful... It is like you are just waiting for them to notice you and start talking, or at least smile at you. 

Dolphins are social animals who live in groups called pods... These pods can form such tight bonds that if one of the dolphins falls ill or is injured, it is not uncommon for another member of the pod to stay with them and help them to the surface to breath. 

But this behavior is not even strictly towards their own kind... In once in Australia a dolphin was seen helping to guide a female Pygmy Sperm Whale together with her calf out of shallow water where they had stranded several times!!

So basically, dolphins are smart and kind. 

Sadly, some people don't have either the appropriate sized heart or brain to respect these beautiful and loving creatures. 

Humans actually hunt dolphins... As hard as it is to face it is true. Thousands of dolphins die due to this horrible act every year. 

Please help to stop cruelty towards the magnificent beings. 

Check out these organizations and become involved. 

Because remember, they may just save you....

Surfer Todd Endris needed a miracle. The shark — a monster great white that came out of nowhere — had hit him three times, peeling the skin off his back and mauling his right leg to the bone.

That’s when a pod of bottlenose dolphins intervened, forming a protective ring around Endris, allowing him to get to shore, where quick first aid provided by a friend saved his life.

“Truly a miracle,” Endris told TODAY’s Natalie Morales on Thursday.

Great post!! Dolphins are such awe-inspiring creatures. There is nothing like the experience of coming face to face with a dolphin in the wild. They seem so engaged and so incredibly human.
