Have You Seen the Viral Video, The Animal Odd Couple (a Dog and an Elephant)?

The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, TN, exists for two reasons:

  • To provide a haven for old, sick, or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures, hardwood forests, spring-fed ponds, and heated barns for cold winter nights.
  • To provide education about the crisis facing these social, sensitive, passionately intense, playful, complex, exceedingly intelligent, and endangered creatures.

At this sanctuary is a dog, Bella, and elephant, Tarra, who have been best friends for years.  They are inseparable.  One day, Bella had a spinal cord injury and was paralyzed.  Don’t worry, this has a happy ending, but watch the short video to see the effect this had on Tarra:   bit.ly/PAMc

“Echo: Queen of the Elephants, is a must see documentary by the same filmmakers as PLANET EARTH.  It tells the story of Echo, the elephant matriarch, as she battles the elements on the last journey of her celebrated life. Each day is a new fight for survival and an opportunity for triumph for Echo and her family.  As she nears the end of her life, she must find the strength to win her final battle, to save her family as she prepares to pass on the reigns of her African kingdom.  Coming up on Animal Planet on Mar 11, 2010, 9pm EST; Mar 12th, 2010, 12:00 am EST:  and Mar 12th, 2010, 4am EST.

About Robin Barr

I was born in New Jersey, and when I was 3, my parents moved to Southern CA where I've lived since in Covina, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, Laguna Niguel and now Mission Viejo. I love dogs and cats and compassionate about all living creatures. What do I do for a living? I invent problem solvers. Have you seen Cold Sores Begone™ or Canker Sores Begone™ in health food stores or online? Mine. I like using stuff that won’t kill me later so both remedies are non-toxic, safe enough for small children, and topical (I don't swallow pills easily). If you want to prevent a cold sore from materializing when you feel the early tingle symptom, apply a few drops of Cold Sores Begone™. Done. If you're plagued with those painful ulcerations inside the mouth (canker sores), apply a few drops of Canker Sores Begone™a few times a day, and it should disappear in 2-3 days. I was elated when PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH magazines told the world my two products work as promised. Afterall, I'm just an accidental entrepreneur. Read the circumstances of how I came to be a small business owner here, scrolling down to the paragraph header that starts with "If you're curious...". Everything above it is a repeat of this bio.
