These Puppies Got to Spend a Magical Day With Fish Friends at the Georgia Aquarium
The adorable video will instantly make your day better.
Just because everyone’s in quarantine doesn’t mean a puppy can’t have a nice day out.
Much like the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, which continues to post videos of its adorable penguins exploring the other exhibits while the aquarium is closed, another aquarium in Georgia seemed to up the ante when it comes to adorable animal visits.
The Georgia Aquarium teamed up with the Atlanta Humane Society to give two adorable puppies an amazing day visiting some new fish friends, Insider reported.
The aquarium posted a video of the special day out on Twitter.
The two dogs, Odie and Carmel, are a pair of terrier-mix siblings who seemed very curious about all the sea creatures they met during their visit. According to Insider, Odie and Carmel got to meet manta rays, whale sharks, and lots of colorful fish at the aquarium’s Ocean Voyager exhibit. Currently, the Georgia Aquarium is closed for the time being due to the outbreak, but employees are still there to take care of the animals.
Spending time outside the shelter can be great for training puppies for new situations, according to a spokesperson for the Atlanta Humane Society to Insider. “It is important to keep animals engaged and stimulated,” they said. “By introducing the puppies to a new space, they are able to learn and explore.”
Not to mention, seeing puppies witness something new and exciting is the perfect way to brighten your day, even while many people are dealing with the struggles of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We at Georgia Aquarium want to bring joy to peoples' day, especially during this time,” a spokesperson told Insider. “And what better way than puppies?”
Very good point.
And the best part is that Carmel and Odie are adoptable. According to Insider, the Atlanta Humane Society is only doing limited adoptions at the moment, but the two pups will be available for adoption once the organization can reopen after quarantine is over.
