We all agree that penguins are adorable. However, not all of us would jump at the first chance to keep one as a pet. However, one Japanese family took the chance. In fact, back in the day having a pet penguin was very peculiar and journalists were lining up to get interviews with the family. In the ’90s, Real TV managed to make a short documentary about the penguin who is named Lola and lives in a small Japanese village.

#1. This is Lola the penguin.

#2. The documentary was made in 1996 when Lala was around 10 years old. She had a luxurious life with an airconditioned room and roamed around the streets of his town.

#3. One day the family took her to the market and she kept going back. The family then put a backpack on her and decided to let her go fishing in the market.

#4. It must have been a sight to behold for the villagers.

#5. And how did the family get Lola in the first place?

#6. Apparently, she was caught in a fire and injured. She was stuck in a fishing net. That is when the family came in; they took her in and nurtured her back to health.

#7. By that time, she was too attached to the family and didn’t want to leave them. So the family decided to keep her and give her a comfortable life.

#8. Sadly, Lola passed away; however, her memory will always remain.

Here is a video of Lola.
