What happened when two lonely geese, Frankie and Blossom, went on a blind date together.

Geese typically mate for life, and when Frankie and Blossom lost their longtime mates, they were lonely and alone.

Human matchmakers in two nearby Iowa cities brought them together and soon they were inseparable, sharing a lake, sharing meals, and sharing the joy of companionship.

Our story begins in 2018, when Blossom and her mate Bud arrived at the Riverside Cemetery lake, according to Dorie Tammen, the cemetery general manager.

They did everything together, including sometimes eating bread from Dorie's hand. But one day last August, Dorie found Bud had died, apparently after an animal attack.

Blossom isolated herself, walking alone, looking sadly at herself in reflective tombstones, and in office windows and mirrors.

So, Dorie wrote a personal message for her on Facebook.

It began: "Lonely, widowed domestic goose seeks life partner for companionship and occasional shenanigans."

Deb and Randy Hoyt, who run a horse rescue ranch about 51 miles away saw it.

They had a geese couple, Frankie and Gretel, but Gretel disappeared, apparently the victim of fowl play. Frankie looked everywhere for Gretel, honking in vain.

The Hoyts contacted Dorie to introduce the two geese. Soon, Frankie and Blossom were a couple and the Hoyts moved him to the cemetery lake.

A week later when the Hoyts visited him, Frankie greeted them, with Blossom.

Dorie told The Washington Post that Frankie and Blossom spend all their time together, and she posts updates on the cemetery's Facebook Page.

The Hoyts are thrilled for the couple. "The cool part of this story is, 'Hey, it can happen a second time,'" they added.
