Such a sweet exclusive from H2OforElephants:
"After reading the Entertainment Weekly article yesterday, no doubt everyone was wanting to know the answer to the question: did Tai the elephant remember Rob and Reese? It had been months since Tai had seen them, and Rob confessed he was “terrified” that Tai would not remember him. Well, the old saying “memory like an elephant” isn’t an old saying for nothing!
Kari at Have Trunk Will Travel, Tai’s human mommy, confirmed with WaterforElephantsFilm.com that Tai indeed remembered her co-stars!
"Hi Jen – The relationship that both Reese and Rob have with Tai is truly amazing. They arrived at different times and each one went to visit with Tai right away. There is no doubt that she remembers both of them. Rob certainly didn’t have to worry about not being remembered. Tai immediately started started patting him down looking for jelly beans. Tai travels with healthy treats like carrots and apples but Reese had someone run out and buy some sweet treats for her. Tai has an affinity for jelly beans so it’s lucky that she has the kind of figure that can carry a little extra weight. We can’t wait to see the photos from the Entertainment Weekly shoot. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous."
And there you have it! Such a happy ending to the wonderful story told in Entertainment Weekly’s photos! Make sure you pick up your copy on newsstands today!"
Thanks Jen and Tink.
'JELLY BEANS' Tai, you lucky girl! Not all of us can use that 'excuse' to touch, pat-down, Rob. haha
