Love Never Ends

Love Week concludes with a tribute to these friends: A baby elephant and a sheep may not appear to have much in common, but at the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa these two animals became the best of pals.

Two years ago, eight-month-old orphan Themba the elephant (the name means 'hope' in Xhosa), struck up a friendship with wooly Albert after arriving at the reserve's animal hospital when he was just six months old.

Themba's mother had fallen off a cliff and died. The loving friendship that developed between Themba and Albert became known around the world. Sadly, on February 5, 2010 Themba died unexpectedly, and Albert misses his good friend.
