Pet Chicken Helps Man Heal After Death Of His Dog

This is 43-year-old Dave Cox from Jacksonville, Florida, and he has a reason to smile once again.

Usually, the only other creature on Earth that could put a smile like this on his face would be his beloved pooch, a Blue Heeler dog named Cort.

According to the self-employed residential general contractor, he and Cort were very close.

But sadly, Cort passed away when he was 17, which left him devastated. The connection he had established with his pooch was gone, but he wasn't about to go out and adopt another dog anytime soon.

He didn't want a dog, but he hadn't ruled out the possibility of finding a new pet to keep him company.

He's still not sure what possessed him to choose a chicken. But in March 2017, he walked into a feed store in Destin, Florida, and walked out with a 3-day-old baby chick. It wasn't long before the two became inseparable.

Cox allowed Sammi to move into his home and he quickly started training her.

He wanted to make sure that she wouldn't fly the proverbial coop when he took Sammi out on a joy ride in his pickup truck. Eventually, Sammi started going everywhere with Cox, just like he used to do with Cort.

Not once did Cox feel as though he was replacing Cort with Sammi, because he wasn't.

As an adventurer, Cox was simply trying out a new experience with his pet chicken. So, what might have come off as a very unusual choice for a pet turned out to be one of the most positive decisions that Cox has ever made.

When Cox and Sammi aren't bonding, they're taking off on their next great adventure somewhere.

Photos like this one simply capture the love these two have for each other. On occasion, they stop to take photos, and it's hard to tell who photobombed who! Maybe Sammi just wanted a kiss from her human friend.

Cox points out that chickens are totally different than dogs, especially in the way they greet you.

According to Cox, Sammi won't jump up on him or lick his face like a dog would, but she recognizes his face and his voice. And despite their obvious differences, the two have formed a powerful bond and learned a thing or two about one another.

Cox is happy to have a new friend to look after, especially when visits the beach.

He has a new pal to go on adventures with and Sammi isn't afraid of jumping in the ocean and going for a swim. All that matters is that they stick together no matter where they go.
