A simple, silly, yet sweet photo of Pelusa. Suz sent me this photo the other night saying Pelu was practicing for sanctuary. I looked at the photo and had no idea what Suz was talking about, I jokingly told Scott that she was working too hard.
Suz explained that Pelu heard that everyone loves when the other girls wear their hay hats, berets and bangs, so she was trying it out. Funny thing is, Pelu never throws hay on herself. She dusts with sand, but never tosses hay, so this was a first. Pelusa got a tiny bit on one part of her head, but the rest all landed on her neck. With the rest going in her mouth, which brings a different level of joy all together.
Pelusa is such a love, it’s hard to look at her and not be grateful to have a chance to bring her to sanctuary, to offer her an elephant family and a real home. She has always been a heartbreaker, but for us, not just because of what captivity has done to her, but because of how strong you feel her in your heart when you think about what her future will bring her. We all await the day we can bring her home to Brazil and her sisters.
Please continue with positive thoughts, prayers and love to help get Pelusa through her time of waiting on CITES approval.
