You may have heard the story about the bond between an elephant, Tarra and a stray dog, Bella who lived together as friends in a Tennessee animal sanctuary.
The original story was reported by Steve Hartman on CBS's Sunday Morning:
They were so close, in fact, that when Bella got injured a few years ago and had to spend three weeks recuperating in the sanctuary office, guess who held vigil the entire time? Twenty-two hundred acres to roam free, and Tarra just stood in the corner waiting. Home video of their reunion shows how inseparable they'd become and remained, right to the end.
Unfortunately the end of the relationship came last week. Fair warning, keep the tissues handy.
Here's the original story about the pair.
Y'all know I'm a sucker for doggies, but now I think I'm a sucker for elephants too.
