Dog Refuses To Leave ‘Dy.ing’ Elephant’s Side.💖
A Dog Named Pancake Has Been An Important Part Of An Elephant Sanctuary In Thailand.💖
In the animal kingdom, friendships can arise from any species and don’t differentiaze sizes or colors. Although there are species that due to the order of the food chain do not get along.
Pancake has been an important part of an elephant sanctuary in Thailand ever since she was found as a stray three years ago.
From that moment on, she has spent her time with the rescue elephants and has been a source of huge emotional support for them.
She Knew She Was Needed.💖
The people and animals at BLES are no stranger to the arrivals and departures that occur there, especially since the sanctuary focuses on taking in elderly elephants after they can no longer work.
A few years ago, an old elephant named Sao Noi ‘pas.s.ed aw.ay’. When Sao said that she had taken her last breath, Boon Thong, was seen standing next to her, stroking her with her trunk to comfort her.
In fact, it is not uncommon for other BLES animals go get involved in the important things that happen or are about to happen.
When Pancake realized something was wrong with Boon Thong, she rushed to her side.💖
Five years ago, she was rescued from a camp where she was forced to carry tourists on her back. And because of this her spine suffered alot of damage and was about to break. Fortunately, he came to BLES at the age of 60.
But soon Boon Thong learned just how different the sanctuary was from the life she had known.
Arriving at her new place, she was finally able to be free, learn her likes and dislikes, roam and forage in the woods – all things she hadn’t been able to do for most of her life.
And so Pancake and Connor both sat with Boon Thong for hours this week, as they did the most difficult work of all — remembering her life and ultimately ‘say.ing goodbye’.
Boon Thong wouldn’t have given up her life at the sanctuary for anything — and when she lay down this week, it was only because she finally had to let her life go.
She knew she was needed, to offer support and she quietly lay beside Boon Thong, until sunset — until the final breath.
Blessings for Boon Thong on her trip to the Rainbow Bridge, and for Katherine and Pancake who shared their love and support with Boon Thong. Love is not limited to one species but can be shared with all.💖
RIP sweet baby! Such kindness is a wonderful tribute for a beautiful soul.🙏💖
