When you see the video below, you may be shocked to see the devastation caused by the Japanese tsunami, and the resiliency of the two dogs still alive in the blighted area. Amidst the rubble two dogs that appear lost or homeless somehow remain vigilant, though one is injured. The other stands guard and tries to offer emotional support by touching the injured one. Some people say no animals have emotions, but how would one dog be so caring, and determined without emotion and empathy?
If you look closely at the brown and white dog, you can see a collar, so it wasn’t a stray before the destruction, and you get a clue about its’ former life. Heroism is generally thought of as restricted to humans, but this video clearly shows it isn’t. It was reported the two dogs were taken to an animal shelter.
