I have a small elephant in my house that has a big ears and a broad back. 
Its big ears keep me warm when I fall asleep and its broad back supports me when I am reading or painting with my parents. 
The trunk look shorter because of its big ears and broad back. But I love it because my nose and its trunk can touch each other.
-
The holes in the ears have been designed to be used as grips when the elephant moves.

The extended trunk design allows to uphold chair cushion.
