Remembering Bella

Oct 31, 2011

If you are a reader of our blog, you will know that one of our loyal customers and favorite charities is the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. 2 years ago, the sanctuary became famous when CBS News featured a story on thier animal odd couple, Bella the dog & Tarra the elephant. (see below) Thier story is a tale of love and friendship we could all learn from.

Sadly, on Friday we received the heartbreaking news that Bella passed away. Click here to read the full letter from the CEO of the Elephant Sanctuary. You may want tissues handy when reading this story. Please share this story and keep Bella’s memory alive!

    Aww, what an incredible story. It’s amazing watching that huge elephant dote on that little dog!! One misstep and she could’ve been squashed puppy, it shows how much Tarra loved Bella that she was so aware of their size difference and was careful not to harm her little friend. Bonds between different animal species are so fascinating.

    I agree with you, their story is so amazing. Two different race but one feelings. I was so touch when Tarra touches Bella’s feet gently.

    That is a very touching story. I almost cried watching the video. I’ve seen cat & dog relationships but that is common. But a dog & an elephant. That is something. Poor Bella. I hope you are in dog heaven now. :(

    It is very unfortunate incidence. The animal lover will be shocked after reading it. I also take care of my dog “rocky”. My neighbour has a cat & a dog pets. They both playing together and their fine-tuning is fantastic.
