In the animal world, friendship can arise in any species and does not depend on size or color. Although there are species that do not get along because of the order in the food chain. The rest have no reason not to communicate, especially if they have come out of difficult situations. They seem to realize that they have suffered in some way, and quickly establish connections.
Pancake is a very loving dog. He was rescued from the streets three years ago 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
Five years ago, an elephant was rescued from a camp where she was forced to carry tourists on her back. And because of this, her spine was badly damaged and was about to break. Fortunately, she came to BLESS at the age of 60. Here she could lead a peaceful life and learn what she liked.
Boon Thong, upon her arrival, made a connection with another elderly elephant named Sao Noi, who died two years ago. When Sao Noi was about to die, Boon Thong accompanied her, standing next to her and stroking her with his trunk to let her know she was accompanied.
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.
On Boon Thong’s last day, Pancake and Katherine stayed by her side for nine hours.
“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.
