Loyalty In The Streets – Standing By Your Best Friend Through Life and Death

December 24th, 2007 | by Ginnie | (Visited 423,341 times)

At Christmas time, we’re reminded of how important life is. The seasons can prove themselves to work just like any other time of year, never taking a day off for celebration.

I was sent these pictures of a dog standing by his companion after being hit by a car in the street. As you gather with friends and family this year, take a somber look at these photos and appreciate the chance to have your best friend hug you back.

After the accident, the dog stood toe to toe with cars until traffic came to a near standstill. I haven’t been able to get the rest of the story to find out what happened next, but as you can see, the dog drew in a crowd as people were amazed at the display of canine loyalty.

Remember this Christmas, to show your love for those you hold dear, and let them know that you care. You never know what’s around the next corner.

Even though some people regard dogs as being less important than humans, it doesn’t mean that they can sometimes be better friends than we can :(

    Actually, scientists can test if animals reason, the key is to first have a common definition of what “reasoning” means and go from there. There was a time where animals were surgically cut and opened alive because medicine, back then, believed that animals, a dog, do not have any feelings, therefore they couldn’t feel pain. Science basically tests theories until someone “proves” an accepted theory to be otherwise. Until someone proves otherwise, the theory lives on and is accepted as scientific fact. We can’t know what an animal is thinking and there are no scientific tests for that, but we can create scientific tests to see, for instance, if a dog can reason, limited as that reasoning might be compared to humans.

    When I was in China, people would stand around and gawk at people dying on the road from a car accident. No one would help while someone DIED. I’m suprised not at all that nobody helped the dog.

    @ bob: Who cares if the dog is dead! Someone could have taken it out of the street and what a horrible place to die too.

    I would have helped the dogs even if the other one bit me. I’d take them away from all those idiots taking pictures. I’m glad most feel the same way.
