    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A dolphin swam up to two distressed whales that appeared headed for death in a beach stranding in New Zealand and guided them to safety, witnesses said Wednesday.
    The actions of the bottlenose dolphin -- named Moko by residents who said it spends much of its time swimming playfully with humans at the beach -- amazed would-be rescuers and an expert who said they were evidence of the species' friendly nature.

    Me too, Pharlap! :clap: :dance:

    With all the bad news, sad news, devastating news that we all read on our forum - this was exactly what I needed to see on this Sunday morning.

    Thank you for posting this "feel good" story, Indy Gal. I agree - Tybee would have loved it. :blowkiss:

    Smiles .. :)

    I love Dolphins. My granddaughter and I were just talking about them today. Years ago there was movie that I loved (and dammit, I forget the name now.) It was about a man and his wife who taught two dolphins to talk. The ending was so sad, I cried. What the heck was the name of that movie.:waitasec:

    Thanks for sharing, it was a great story! I have loved dolphins since my first trip to sea world as a little kid.

    Was it The Day of the Dolphin with George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere BeeBee? They taught Dolphins to talk and then the dolphins were kidnapped to use in an assassination plot :(
