An Elephant's Best Friend

A friend of mine recently shared a story about an odd couple at an elephant sanctuary in Tennessee. This lovely story is about a friendship between Tara, an elephant and her best girlfriend, Bella, a dog. Yes, that's right! These two are inseparable. When Bella the dog got injured and had to remain inside while recovering, Tara held vigil outside and Bella was brought outside once a day to see Tara. Tara even scratches Bella's belly. What a sweet story and it just goes to show that dogs are not only a man's best friend nor are friendships limited to just your species.
