Goodbye little Shaba...

This morning I am saddened...I received an email telling me my little adopted baby elephant Shaba in Africa passed away in the night... they say elephants never forget... I will never forget you little sweet baby... I am too sad to post her little picture but I found this one called Animal Heaven... of course ALL God's precious creatures go to Heaven... I love you little Shaba... rest in peace...


  1. Oh, Julie, I am so sorry to hear about Shaba. I will say a prayer to St. Francis. Shaba is now at Rainbrow Bridge where she has so many new friends and I know my little mama girl, Hannah, ran up to her and wiggled her little boxer butt and barked at Shaba and said HI, wanna play?


  2. Oh Julie Marie,
    I am so sorry to hear about little
    Shaba. I am sending you an extra big hug my dear friend.

    Much love to you,

  3. Oh I'm so sorry. A hard time of year, to hear of loss. Hugs...

    But Happy Christmas to you and to yours.

  4. How sad. I guess her 'work' was done here. I am sending you lots of positive thoughts and prayers now. And hugs across cyberspace!


  5. Oh Julie...I'm so sorry to hear that Shaba passed away! One day you two will be reunited and Shaba will take you all over exploring all of God's wonderful creations and his sweet creatures.

    Thank you for making a difference to Shaba while here on earth, I know she's grateful.

    Big ((((HUGS)))) to you sweet friend!

  6. Julie - I am so sorry to hear this dear animal passed away. You know elephants never forget and when your spirits reunite I know she will trumpet just for you!

    Blessings to you dear friend,


  7. Oh Ju Ju I am so sad to hear this... I can't believe that Shaba passed away... I knew that Little Shaba was weak but I really thought things would get better... Elephants don't forget and I know Shaba is happy and has plenty of food and water now... Shaba is probably running with the other elephants that she knew... I haven't checked my emails yet so I don't know if I got any word on this... That is a pretty picture and I know Shaba is in a paradise!!! I know how excited you were and me and Ellie are sooooo sorry Ju... If you need anything please let us know. I know you get so attached, as we all do... Please know you helped Shaba all you could from here... Love you Lots...

    Just Remember SHaba like this in this beautiful Picture filled with beautiful animals and colors and keep her in your heart always....
    Love Filly

  12. Such sad news - my thoughts are with you.

  13. Oh Julie Marie I am so very sad to hear this news of your beloved Shaba. I know she is in a happy place and will meet you someday. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of everyone...people and beautiful animals, the world is a better place because of it.

  14. Dear Julie Marie,

  15. Julie Marie, That is so sad. One can truly become attached to an animal whether near or far. Being a baby it might not have been able to have the strength that it needed to go on in this world. You did a wonderful thing for the short time Shaba was around.
    Take Care,

  16. Hello, Julie Marie,
    I am sorry to hear of Shaba's passing. I know your heart is broken because I know how much you love all of God's creatures. Thinking of you and sending love! Vicki

  17. Oh how sad. I'm so sorry. Animals hold such a special place in my heart too! I'm so sorry!
