The film, which is based on a Great Depression-era story by author Sara Gruen, will follow a veterinary student who leaves his schooling after his parents are killed and instead takes up with the circus. Tai hails from the Have Trunk Will Travel conservation and will play the stubborn elephant who seems untrainable until Pattinson's character wins her over. The HTWT website says Tai is "very intelligent and loves to take naps and play". She also "likes people and every other elephant she sees".
One thing is for certain — sharing the screen with Pattinson is no peanuts part!

We've all got someone (or two or three . . .) on our gift list who rocks to their own special beat. So this holiday season, treat them to something spectacular that's easy on the eyes, music to their ears, and perfectly in tune with their personal sense of style.
Not only do Beats Solo HD headphones deliver the superior sound Beats by Dr. Dre products are famous for, but they also look as good as they sound — drenched in colors that are red like a heart, teal like Miami, white like snow, and lots more.
I can think of a couple new faces I'd like to add to this faceoff (Carlo and Azuza, for starters). While I coo away at these new cuties, check out all the familiar zoo babies that are still as cute as ever. From itty bitty bears to birds too tiny to fly, try to pick a favorite in the Which Baby Animal Is Cuter? game.
Need I mention, every time you play you're eligible to win big? We'll be giving away a $500 grand prize every month — you must be logged in, and you'll be entered once each time you play. (Check out the official rules here.) What are you waiting for? Get started!
While it's hard to resist the temptation to pet a pooch, remember that there are a different set of rules to follow when meeting a working dog. You should never interfere with the duties at hand, and keep the following four things in mind before you approach:
- Remain calm. Do not behave in a way that would distract a dog or take away concentration even for a minute while busy. The pup's primary responsibility is leading someone else, so make sure your mannerisms are respectful.
- Ask first. Before asking if you can greet the dog, make sure the twosome has completed the task at hand. Never just stick your hand out to rub the dog or put it in the dog's face — he's busy!
- It's not snacktime. Because guide dogs are allowed to enter places that civilian pups cannot, offering treats can tempt the dogs to beg or accept food in restaurants. Treats also hinder his performance by drawing that attention to you and not his owner.
- Stay out of the way. Do not block a guide dog's path or call out to him. Also, keep in mind that while very talented, the dogs cannot read lights, so don't honk your horn or call out to the pedestrians to go ahead if you pass by in a car.
If my parents had been a bit more willing, I would have filled our home up with pets! From the salamander I caught in a creek and the squirrels I'd try to chase as a tot to my actual dog and cat, my love for animals didn't hatch overnight.While fondly recalling my menagerie, I came across this very question in the PetSugar Q + A community group asking about favorite childhood pets. I think my kitty named Precious was my favorite since I remember picking her out at a shelter more clearly than I remember the day we brought my dog home. Think back to the pets you had as a kid — or wished you did — could you name a favorite?
