elephant and dog in TN sanctuarySteve Hartman has a sad update to one of our favorite stories from 2009 involving the elephant sanctuary in Tennessee. A story of compassion between the most unlikely of friends.

For nearly a decade, Tara the elephant had been best friends with a dog named Bella — a mutt who wandered onto the sanctuary grounds and into the heart of the gentle giant.

Although the last chapter of this story is sad, the same compassion that warmed your heart the first time will surely make you smile again.
