These three animals are the best of friends. They were found in the basement of a drug dealers home. They were all babies at the time. They were brought to an animal sanctuary where they continued to love each other as siblings. Last August, Leo was put down when they discovered tumors in his liver. These three animals survived abuse together and are the most adorable trio. I chose this article because I saw a video on You Tube before with these three animals. I am sad to here that Leo died and I would love to find out how Baloo and Shere Khan are now doing without their brother. I imagine after being together for so long that they must have been confused and lost without Leo.
Mabel the hen was ready to be cooked for someone's dinner when a family saved her. She is an indoor pet and decided to take over momma dog duty. When the momma dog goes outside to play, Mabel roosts over the puppies. She keeps them warm by sitting on them and makes noises when someone disturbs them. I chose this friendship because the picture made me giggle. I like how Mabel doesn't care that these pups aren't like her, she just takes care of them. I think that everyone should be more like Mabel and care for everyone even if they aren't like you.
Bubbles the elephant was brought to the Myrtle Beach Safari in 1983. Bella the pup was an abandoned dog brought to the Safari sanctuary. These two became close friends because they both love water. They spend most of their days together swimming and playing in the man made swimming area. I chose Bubbles and Bella because I love to swim and I think that I could be great friends with them. Wouldn't it be fun to swim with an elephant and dog?
