Dog refuses to be separated from his elephant friend in his last hours of life

 Friendships in the animal kingdom can originate from any species and do not discriminate based on size or color. Although there are some species that do not get along due to the order of the food chain. The others have no excuse not to relate, especially if they have come from terrible circumstances. They appear to recognize that they have suffered in some way and make connections fast.

Pancake is a very affectionate dog. Three years ago, he was saved from the streets and sent to an elephant refuge.

When Katherine Connor, the founder and CEO of BLES, saw Pancake, she adopted her and brought her to the shelter. She has adapted quite well, despite the fact that she is not even quite elephant-like, and she is aware of everything.

In fact, it is fairly uncommon for other BLES animals to become involved in critical events that are taking place or are going to take place.

She was rescued five years ago from a camp where she was forced to carry tourists on her back. As a result, her spine had been severely damaged and was on the verge of breaking. He arrived at BLES at the age of 60, which was fortunate. Where he was able to live a peaceful life and learn about the things he enjoyed.

She was completely exhausted when she arrived, but the setting forced her to get to know others and start a new life.

When Boon Thong arrived, she struck up a friendship with another senior elephant named Sao Noi, who died two years ago. Boon Thong accompanied Sao Noi when she was going to die, standing next to her and caressing her with his trunk to let her know she was attended.

This time, it was Boon Thong's turn to bid farewell to the underworld, but she was not alone.

Pancake had a feeling something was wrong, so she stayed at Boon Thong's side when he became ill. She merely kept her company, but because there was nothing she could do to make her leave her alone, Katherine and Pancake agreed to join her in her final days.

A challenging task, but one that made Boon Thong feel honored. Pancake and Katherine stayed by Boon Thong's side for nine hours on his dying day.

Pancake, with his great heart, never left Katherine or Boon Thong alone. She realized it was vital to offer assistance. And she remained quietly with the elephant till sunset, till the last words of encouragement. These are the words that BLES officials posted on social media.

Her grave was decorated with fruits and flowers as a memorial. Furthermore, her body will be laid to rest next to that of her good friend Saint Noi, at a location where she can finally be happy and live a complete life.
