In Reference to: Bella, Tarra's Companion, has Died
I do hope that Tarra is given plenty of time to mourn Bella.
When my old Boston Terrier died a couple years ago, I laid out her body for my other animals (one other dog and two cats) to "visit" and they did. Also for the next week they took turns sleeping in her bed.
Such intelligent animals as elephants would need even more time to mourn--give her that, whatever she needs. And when the time is right--another companion (we have since adopted another--rescued-- Boston).
