So glad you stopped in to learn more about a very sweet little friendship! This story comes to us straight from the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. In it we can find that friendship is not a human construct, that certain animals, too, seek out pleasurable company simply for company's sake. Tarra and Bella are inseperable friends, as you will see from the video. They share meals, sleeping quarters, play together when feeling lighthearted, and comfort each other in the hard times.

The catch? Well Tarra is an elephant (as you may have guessed) and Bella is a dog. They make quite a pair! So grab those tissues cause you're gonna need them.



They were just so sweet together. If only our friendships could be so simple.

You're probably going to be uspet that I waited until now to say that Bella has since gone to doggie heaven. Staff at the sanctuary believe she was attacked by coyotes and killed, and then carried nearly a mile by her friend Tarra. The love remains, surely, as elephants have such very long memories.

Something very odd to me at the end of the video I linked- the newscaster mentioned that Tarra had recently become very protective of Bella. Could it be she had some presentiment of Bella's tragic future?

Agreed! I know it's the law of nature and all but can't help but hope she gave them a few parting shots.
