Over the past year, there have been many touching animal stories that made us say "awww" and demonstrated the amazing capacity of animals to love. Here are 15 stories that happened in 2010 that we think are worth revisiting.

1. Blind Dog Has Her Own Seeing-Eye Dog: You usually think of seeing-eye dogs helping people, but in this case, a cute little King Charles spaniel is befriended by an older German shepherd (pictured above). The pair aren't just friends -- the shepherd protects the spaniel, who is almost completely blind.

2. Sweet Reunion Between a Man and the Gorilla He Raised as a Baby: We love a good getting-back-together story, and this reunion of a man and a gorilla he raised from infancy really moved us. They say elephants don't forget, but neither do gorillas, it seems.

3. Cat Returns Home Five Years After Hurricane Katrina: An incredible five years after Katrina slammed the Gulf Coast, one Biloxi, Miss., resident got a call from a shelter that had her missing cat. The kitty, named Scrub, was microchipped before the hurricane and had been living about 15 miles away, in Gulfport, Miss.
