Dog watches over injured dog friend after tsunami hit

Emotional video of a faithful dog standing guard over his injured pal after they survived the tsunami in Japan shows firsthand the struggles animal rescue groups will face in the coming weeks to save the lives of pets that are now alone and frightened. The clip was filmed by a crew from Fuji Television and is narrated in Japanese, but no translation is needed to understand the heartbreak the dogs are experiencing. (The video will bring tears to your eyes.) Ohmidog website reported that people in Japan are writing to the TV station asking them to disclose the location of the dogs so they can be rescued. The outcome of this tragedy is unknown at this time. But as the woman who revealed the story wrote to Ohmidog, “…ask your readers to pray for the dogs’ safety.”
