A grief-stricken dog proved his loyalty by standing over his playmate’s dead body for 10 hours after the poor pooch was hit by a car and killed.
Devoted dog Blackie was forced to watch as his companion was struck by a passing vehicle as they played in the street in Yuen Long, Hong Kong, at around 4pm yesterday. But instead of fleeing in terror to mourn the loss of his pal, he risked his own life by remaining next to the dog’s corpse, protecting it from passing cars.
A local resident who arrived on the scene at around 7pm said a kindhearted motorist eventually stopped and dragged the dog’s body to the pavement. Refusing to leave, Blackie stood guard over his pal’s body for 10 hours.
At around 2am, the resident, whose last name is Li, finally managed to get animal control workers to come and take the dog’s body away, reports Shaghaiist. But even with his friend gone, Blackie watched over the spot until 5am. See more photos from the scene below…
