(Newser) – The video is like one of those tear-jerker Budweiser Super Bowl ads with animals, but this one happens to be real. It's about a goat named Mr. G who got rescued from squalor and transported to the Animal Place sanctuary in Vacaville, California, reports Fox. Problem was, rescuers didn't realize how attached Mr. G was to a burro named Jellybean. Mr. G. didn't eat for six days and moped about in what seemed to be a depressive funk—until rescuers reunited him with Jellybean. "You might want to grab a tissue," advises Katie Dowd at the San Francisco Chronicle. "Mr. G’s reaction is so sweet and so incredibly human."

We would have an average of about 150 head of black Angus cattle on our farm. We had one horse named "Sugar." One day we saw something in with the cattle that turned out to be a "Nanny Goat." We kept her out in the open, so the Owner could easily see where she was, but nobody ever clamed her. My Dad was getting up in years and decided to sell all his livestock. The Nanny Goat was a constant companion of Sugar's, and my Dad stipulated that they had to be sold together. They were bought by a couple with young children, who were just starting out with a farm.
