    Thanks so much for sharing this amazing story of Jessica!
    She is truly blessed in her ‘parents’.

    It was lovely seeing her and the dog snuggle up and sleep.
    I guess we humans have much to learn from our four footed friends!

    This is a wonderful video! I love animals and when they love you back
    nothing is better. God really knows what he’s doing. I wish I could say
    the same for humans more often.

    I love it. I didn’t grow up with pets, and I still have a difficult time touching them, and I sure don’t like them licking me, but, I really do wish I had a puppy so I could find out all the stuff I missed. Thank you for sharing this. Ellen Skidmore

    Well this did put a smile on my face. However I do wonder at the wisdom of taking a “wild” animal out of its natural environment and allowing it to be bedded, fed, and anything else like a human.
    No wonder Jessica won’t leave – I wouldn’t either if I had a great human family who wanted to look after me so well!
    Thanks for sharing, I think?

    What an adorable story. The best part for me was that Jessica (hippo was allowed to leave at any time. She was not being held against her will and that the treatment of her was so good and human. Thanks for the feel good video!!!!!!!!

    I just wrote “human” when I meant to write “humane…”

    If animal can understand the langauage of love and be faithful to thier owner, why can’t we human be the same to our lord – Almighty God.

    I think this is amazing. It’s what life is all about; “helping one another” it sure made me smile. God made us all to be happy and this made me happy.
    Thank you for sharing…

    I love this video….If a cruel animal knows how to give love in return so as a criminal knows how to love too..God is so great.He gives stories and testimonies that will inspire us …and reminds us that there is a Living God who controls everything…

  14. Nancyd says:

    What an amazing bond you all have. Animals are so cool. You open your heart and look at the possibilities

  15. Ramona Perry says:

    This has to be the most wonderful video I have seen for a long time. The caring and compassion, even to the point of going into her home for a snack. It is fantastic to see people interact with large animals . You can actually see the love and contentment in her eyes when she is being put to bed. It sure touched my heart. Thank you for being you.

  16. Carrie Logan says:

    This vidoe is great. It is so wonderful to see people be open to reach out to what ever animal God puts in our path. You can see that the hippo is very happy and without these people she would not have had a chance at life. I rescue and rehab small wildlife and it touches my heart to see others out there doing the same. Thank you for sharing this with me.

    simply amazing!

  18. Joan Vachon says:

    Can you imagine if you had a visitor over who was unaware that you
    owned a hippo and all of a sudden the door opens and in comes this
    hippo the visitor could faint.
    I really felt that it was a very warm, funny but heartfelt story.

    it was a very unussual pet; but, jessica and her family give the hippo unconditional love.. awesome! it only shows, how is human takes care of animals, being entrusted to them by God..

  20. Gail says:

    Love this!!!! W e can love anything if we have a heart to..God bless those who made the video and God bless Jessica..

  21. Jane Reid says:

    It is an interesting experience for this family. I am not convinced that Jessica loves her family, but certainly is dependent on them. The dog accepts her, sleeping next to her, but was stepped on when they both tried to get through the door. I question whether Jessica would care too much if she damaged or killed her accidentally. Wild animals do have that wildnest in them that turns on their keepers even after years of being given human love. I think many people believe that the animal thinks, reacts, and loves as the human does. They were not created this way.

    Sweet story. Warmed my heart and placed a smile.

  23. ivy says:

  24. Joeline Muller says:

    Fantastic.!!!! I tamed a lot of njalas, buschbuck, zebra, girrafe etc. Would’hve loved a hippo! Its right, they feel like family and you the same about them. Im allso staying in South Africa.

  25. Celestite says:

    This is not a “funny” story, as you put it, it is a truly inspiring and meaningful story. It demonstrates, what I have always known in my heart and soul, that all life is One…. Our Beloved Creator plays hide and seek with Himself through countless forms He creates and animates…. If we go just a little beyond the surface reality of appearances, we very clearly sense that the life in a hippo, a dog, a bird, a flower or a star is the same life that we call our own…. How truly AWESOME it all is…..
    Blessings to all……….
