A different kind of friendship

Story highlights

  • Diana Bagnoli's portraits show the special bond between people and their animals
  • But these animals aren't your average pets: they include alpacas, pigs, rabbits and geese

(CNN)Fifteen years ago, Chiara Sgambati's family was given a goose egg.

They already had plenty of chickens at their farm in northern Italy, so instead of eating the egg, they put it under a hen and hatched it.
    Today, the goose roams freely in the garden and has become part of the family herself. Her name is Letizia.
