Just the other day I posted the story of the tiger cub and the young dolphin who are friends in the making out at a zoo in California. Then today I get sent this video that cranks the inter-species friendship bar up a notch.
At an animal sanctuary in Tennessee that mostly specializes in retired circus and zoo elephants, an odd friendship has blossomed. It seems that the elephants kind of pair off right away. They find another elephant and they become BFFs. Well, this one elephant found a best friend in one of the stray dogs that live in the sanctuary. The two are inseparable. Even when the dog was recovering from back surgery the elephant stood vigil outside the recovery area. Waiting for him.
You should check out that video because it's really amazing.
Elephants and dogs getting along like best friends. Maybe there is hope for this planet after all.
Nah! Not with us in charge.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the friendly animals are doing it.
