Unlikely Animal Friends

Unlikely Animal Friends, "The Chicken and the Chihuahua" (Friday, Feb. 27, 10/9c, NatGeo WILD)

You can't possibly need any more inducement to watch than the show's title. For this half-hour of adorable pairings, a silkie chicken (the fluffy kind) and two-legged Chihuahua hang out on the front desk of an animal hospital; a cat climbs a mountain with her human partner; and a goat and donkey form a bond that cannot be broken by distance. And the misery you've accrued over the week will melt away like so much cotton candy in your mouth.
