Default Faithful dog

I came across this news article out of Japan. I hope these two dogs live out the rest of their lives together. This story warmed my soul.

Here's a copy of the video with translation.

That is amazing. But as you know people underestimate the intelligence of their pets. And obviously from this story they do have almost human feelings.
Now I have never told the following story but it took place in my home in 2005. First of all, our Angel which she was in this story was tragically ran over in my driveway by a barn builders wife who was bringing lunch to her husband and workers as she sped up my drive way talking and not watching as Angel went out to greet them! She ran over my Angel (Labrador) in 2006. But in 2005 at 2:00am in the middle of the night. Angel woke us up whining and releasing a short series of low barks. Something totally unusual in it's sound than normal. Felling something was wrong I got out of bed and searched through the house. As I went into the Kitchen I could smell the presence of what I thought was gasoline. She the Lab was by my side as I opened the door to the two car garage. Much to my surprise I found the garage floor was filled with gasoline and the deadly fumes that could have easily caused a major fire. With a refrigerator and some electrical items in the garage. Obviously, I could not move the vehicles at that time due to danger of spark and so forth. What had happened was the portable generator that is stored in one corner of my garage had developed a hole in the float bowl and emptied the 5 gal gas tank out in the floor. Bottom line Angel was truly and Angel and probably saved our life that night. God Bless Her and may she be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for us!
If you are a pet lover look up the Rainbow Bridge.

Got a couple waiting for me already.

Sorry to hear about your Lab. Tough way to lose a friend. I'm sure it was tragic for the lady driving also.

Thank you also for your thoughts.
But really did not bother her that much! Her response was "Sorry I ran over your dog I didn't see it!" And no more! No tears and no real physical response. I have been through a lot in life and experiences but I was so mad I was literally Numb! I knew things were not good so I ask all of them to leave the property at that time including the workers. Contacted the husband later and he came and finished the barn. I have never been mad enough before to actually feel numb. But she was a phenomenal pet. We now have Baby Girl who also is a Pointing Yellow Lab and looks just like Angel. She is a different girl but we see a lot of character similarities. She is like glue to me when I am home and of course loves to swim!

Take Care and thank you for your kind thoughts. And also thinking about your wonderful pets that are at the Rainbow Bridge waiting. Who have made our world a better place to be because of their love and dedication to us.

Great story, Sniper. I have had several very faithful companions in the course of my life. I currently have three dogs right now. I could no sooner turn my back on an animal in need than a human in need.
