We, human being, fail to stand by our companions so often because we are more concerned about our own safety and well-being. We have come up with intelligent excuses to defend our incapability to commit for a single relation. However, there are other creatures in the same world that refuse to go by "human" rules of civilisation. One such incident in China will shake you to the core if you still believe in friendship.
It was just another street dog that rose up to the occasion and showed the world the true meaning of friendship. It sat by its dead friend on a busy road all night even after the temperature dropped to -13oC, according to Sky News. The YouTube video, which is both disturbing and touching at the same time, is now uploaded by multiple users as it has gone viral.
A Yinchuan onlooker informed that the dog has been by the side of its friend throughout the night. The video shows the dog showing no intention of moving away from its friend, which was killed in an accident on December 22. Local residents kept a stool beside the dogs to alert people who are driving in the busy road.
The sandy coloured dog is seen in the video earnestly following its friend when local residents moved it from the middle of the road to the pavement. The dog stood by the dead white dog even when it was kept lying on the pavement. It also followed its friend even when it was buried under a tree in a park nearby.
After its friend is buried, the dog ran away then. It is yet to be known what happened to the dog after the incident. However, the dog taught a valuable lesson to fellow humans who often fail to rise up to the "human" standards.
