Dogs are just amazing creatures. It’s no wonder so many of us choose to share our lives with them. Recently in China, a male dog stayed with his dead female dog friend for over 6 hours after she was hit by a car. He licked & nudged her and even lay down next to her even though they were in traffic. Heartbreaking.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen dogs behave this way. There is the black lab in California who stayed with her dead companion, the pair of dogs who stayed together in Japan after the tsunami, a dog in Chile who hauled it’s mortally injured friend off a very busy highway, and the New York dog who protected his mom after she had been hit by a car.
