I previously wrote about the thirty year friendship between two elephants, Jenny and Shirley. And then I saw this story.
I tried not to cry into my Morning Breakfast blend coffee. I failed.
This is a little like the relationship that inspired my book Luella, which was based on a real life friendship between a young duckling and a dog.
People who believe that animals can't have deep meaningful connections the way that people do are seriously lacking in their mental faculties... That's the nice way of saying it. Normally, I would call those people "big dumb doodie heads", something that my nephew Jack would say.
Although, Jack hasn't said that YET, I'm already psychologically preparing for that moment so I don't laugh too hard.
Here is something to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy on this cold January morning.
Thanks to Dooce.com for posting this story,
