What a faithful dog. Hope the owner will forever give this dog everything he deserves for the rest of his life. Animals do so much for us and in return we treat them like dirt. Some people even throw their animals away. God Bless all the animals in the world.

Amazing. A dog honours the 20 millennia or more of dogs' companionship with humans as their pack alphas!

If there was still any need, this beautiful story once again demonstrates the unconditional love of animals to their human friends, a love that is unfortunately too often countered with violence and abuse. Thanks Cher.
