A long time ago there was a King who was a lover of all animals, particularly elephants. He constructed a vast stable for his elephant. A caretaker was hired to ensure that the requirements of the royal elephant were taken care of.

In the afternoon, a wandering dog walked into an elephant’s stable at the Royal Palace. The elephant was reclining under a shaded tree. The dog noticed the food left behind by the elephant and then ate to the fullest. The elephant spotted the dog consuming the food leftovers.

The dog soon began to gain weight and became extremely healthy.

They were informed about the dog who was alongside an elephant, and who was also his closest companion. They also discovered that the dog was missing for the past couple of days. The King contacted the Chief Minister of his office, informed him about the situation, and asked to come up with an answer. On the advice of the Chief Minister, the King made an announcement throughout the kingdom that the owner of the dog must return it to the owner immediately and be compensated in a lavish manner.

He informed the King that he bought this dog directly from the person who looked after the elephant of the royal family. The caretaker was contacted immediately and he admitted to selling the dog despite the fact that there was no legal reason to sell it. The King ordered the dog to be taken back to the stables, along with the elephant. The caretaker was instructed to pay back the farmer’s cash. The caretaker was also required to take care of the dog as the elephant. The elephant in the royal household was pleased to see his pal returning.
