There is no difference in size or color between animals in the animal kingdom when it comes to friendships. Although there are species that do not get along because of the food chain. Even if they come from difficult circumstances, the rest have no reason not to relate to each other. They seem to realize that they have suffered in some way and quickly create connections.
Despite being a small dog, Pancake is very loving. Three years ago, he was rescued from the streets and taken to an elephant sanctuary.
When Katherine Connor, founder, and CEO of BLES found out about Pancake, she adopted her and took her to the shelter. Where she has adapted very well, despite not being even remotely elephant-like, and of course she is aware of everything.
Other BLES animals often take part in important events when they happen or are about to happen.
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 a lot of damage and was about to break. Fortunately, he came to BLES at the age of 60. Where he was able to lead a life of peace and learn to know the things he liked.
Upon her arrival, Boon Thong connected with an elderly elephant named Sao Noi, who had died two years ago. During the final moments before Sao Noi died, Boon Thong accompanied her. He stood next to her and stroked her trunk to let her know he was with her.
This time it was Boon Thong’s turn to say goodbye to the underworld, but she was not alone either.
Pancake sensed that something was up, and when she saw that Boon Thong was feeling ill, she stayed by his side. She simply kept her company, but there was nothing to make her leave her alone, Katherine and Pancake finally gave themselves the task of accompanying her in her last days.
Boon Thong felt honored to have been given such an exciting task. Katherine and Pancake spent nine hours with Boon Thong on his last day.
“Pancake, with that beautiful heart, did not leave Katherine or Boon Thong alone once. She knew it was necessary, to offer support. And she stayed silent with the elephant, until sunset, until the last encouragement”. These were the words that BLES officials wrote on their social networks.
Fruits and flowers were placed on her grave as a tribute. Additionally, her body will rest next to that of her good friend Saint Noi, and in a place where she can finally be happy and lead a full life. Here is a touching story that shows animals have feelings and are empathetic.
