A post from the Limerick Animal Welfare Facebook page went viral during the week. 

Why, you ask?

Well, because it finally proved to us all that love IS real. 

Pictured below is Jack, and his new friend – a swan – whom he took under his wing (heh see what I did there). 

Follow Jack and the swan as they undertake the journey of a lifetime together – crossing the road:

"G'luck Jack!"

All in all, probably the best love story of all time. 

It's one thing to help an elderly person cross the road – but to help a swan?! Legend.
