In Asia, many people said that elephants and dogs would never be friends because elephants did not like dogs and dogs were afraid of elephants.
Once upon a time, there was a royal elephant, who was fed well and cared for. In the area of the royal elephant's shed, there was a poorly fed dog
The hungry dog would sneak into the elephant's shed and steal the rice that fell from the elephant's mouth. Over time, the dog would eat nowhere else and eventually grew to be bigger and stronger. The dog also lost his fear of elephants.
"Friendship is one of life's most wonderful things."
The two animals spent so much time together that they evenutally became inseperable, to the point neither would eat without the other. They became 'best friends' and wanted to be together all of the time.
One day, the dog was taken away by a villager. The elephant fell into a depression and was not motivated to due anything. The royal king sent a wise minister to examine the elephant. The minister said the problem was the elephant was without the dog, so the king ordered people to find this stray dog.
The elephant and dog were back together again! and this tale teaches that: Even 'natural enemies' can become 'best friends'
