    This was a lovely, touching show. I found all the odd couples special but Jack and Charlie was truly heartbreaking because Jack is alone now. I love PBS and this is one of the best stories of love and friendship! Keep up the good work!

    How can anyone question the emotion and compassion of animals. I think humans have a lot to learn. Thank you for showing this incredible story for us to learn from.
