Rescuing dogs in the aftermath of Japan’s earthquake

NPR’s Scott Simon reports:

A news crew from Fuji TV saw a couple of dogs this week, lying in the wreckage of Mito, Japan.

A dog with brown and white splotches seemed to hover over one with gray, black and white splotches. Both dogs looked grimy. The second dog didn’t seem to move.

When the dog with brown and white splotches came toward the crew, they thought it was warning them to stay away. But it returned to the other dog, and put a paw on its head.

Then they understood: the dog was sticking by his friend, and asking for help.

Update: Thanks to tcmum for letting Scottie News know about the YouTube video of the dogs. Here it is:

  1. The video can be seen on Youtube. The latest update seems to be that both dogs were rescued & getting veterinary care.

  2. The video is sad; however, a true demonstration of real friendship. My God be with all the animals.
