Cute - however, a donkey would have caused the dogs injury, and taunted him once handicapped...

I can’t help wondering what caused the spinal injury.

My eyes are leaking... sniff... sniff... I need a Kleenex.

Good story. Elephants live much longer than dogs. I hope Tara has many doggie friends to come in her life. It will be very sad for her when Bella’s time on earth is ended.

I’m so glad I saw that.
The problem is that dogs don’t live as long as elephants, and sooner or later that poor elephant is going to lose the dog.

Did you see what Jay Leno did with this video?

Showed all of cudley, cute stuff....and then had the elephant suck the entire dog up into its trunk.
Very funny video edit!

Great story - though I could have done without the little ‘life lesson’ from the reporter at the end.

Cute story.

Funny how I’m seeing all these “Taras” now. My DOG (6yo) is Tara; maybe I’ll name my next elephant Bella.

But how old is the elephant? After all, she’s “retired”.

Re: names the same, it’s kinda like driving a new vehicle. You always seem to notice the other ones like it on the road.

Re: your NEXT elephant’s name, so, what was the first one’s name??? lol.

My son got her as a pup when he was a student at Texas Tech and shipped her to me in Seattle where I lived at the time. She was born and bred in El Paso. He never would tell me why he chose the name, and I always assumed she was named after the Lubbock soil which is yellowish red.

I’ve largely call-named many of my pets for Gone With the Wind people (and now, estates).

However, Tara’s official name is “Terra Maria”, using the Latin for earth/land as well as Maria/Mary. IOW, the Latin name of Maryland.
