    A very touching photo that caught my attention when I was browsing on a social networking site. It shows how loyal a dog could be on their companion in life. True enough, dogs have a heart bigger than most people in the world.

    I think I had seen this photo and read the story before and it was really touching.
    Dogs are really loving and caring creatures that is why they are considered great companions even to mankind.

    :(That’s really sad. It brings me to tears thinking that he’s calling for a rescue for his friend, pleading that somebody heed their needs and yet… nothing came and he’s staying with his friend not knowing he’s dead and he’s protecting him and patiently remaining on his side until he wakes up, get on his feet and play with him again… =(

    It reminds me of the movie Hachiko. It is based on true story of an akita breed dog who patiently waited his matter in a train station for years not knowing that his matter will never get back because he had passed away. I can't help my tears from falling when I recall the sad parts of the scenes.

    Oh, yes. I’ve watched it four times and for the 2nd to the 4th time I cried like the first time I’ve watched it. Hachiko’s undying devotion and loyalty to his master speaks of true love and when you see a dog suffer out of love, it’s just heartbreaking.

    This is heartbreaking:( Hurt and unhappy dogs are the saddest thing in the whole world. Looking at these photos brings tears to my eyes.

    I saw this some weeks ago I think, it was so sad, but dogs are known for this kind of thing :( I can vouch for street dogs having mates and a social life humans might know nothing about, the bond can be too strong sometimes.

    I have the same feeling, and that is why I dislike the dog breeding business. So many poor dogs end up in the street because of that ugly and unethical business. Just the other day I saw a very cute, but dirty french poodle in the street, looking for food and water.

    Yes, I have also seen many incidents similar to this before. A dog caring for his companion, whether dog or man. This is one of the few reasons why I truly believe that dog has emotions. It's absolutely undeniable.

    Oh no, this is so sad:( I hope someone will take care of that poor thing. French Poodles are so cute, friendly and cheerful!

    I hope so too, if I were living alone I'd have taken that dog in, nurse it back to health and maybe keep it... if not just find her or her a new home. If more people did that i think we'd not have such a huge issues with homeless dogs here :( If only there weren't so many amateur breeders...

    I hate amateur breeders who do this only for money. They're so selfish:confused:
    If I could, I'd definitely adopt a homeless dog too. Unfortunately, my landlord doesn't allow pets. Also, most people in my family suffer from allergies and this is why my parents got a Yorkie. Yorkshire Terriers are hypoallergenic:)
