    poignant and uplifting.....:clap2:

    the video tells the sorry....he wouldn't leave his buddies side till they came for them both...



    Here‘s an English translation of the camera crew’s words upon discovering the pair (h/t Yahoo):

    We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.

    He has a collar. He must be someone’s pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.

    Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.

    Where?

    Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.

    The dog is protecting him.

    Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.

    I can’t watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.

    Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.

    Yes! Yes! He is alive.

    He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.

    Oh good. He’s getting up.

    Dogs are far better friends than humans. They think we are wonderful even when we're not.

    The canine duo in Sendai has since been rescued, according to several news reports. According to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, "Many of you have been asking about the YouTube dogs. As far as we know they have been rescued and are safe in Ibaraki. We are still waiting for 'after' photos but will let you know as soon as we hear an update on this," they write in a wall posting on their Facebook page.

    Maybe the callous conservatives can learn something from a dog (how many Americans are left without healthcare?).

    I saw this yesterday. Dogs are the best! If those dogs end up for adoption they need to stay together.

    I agree that dog's are the best friend a human can have.

    Your extremist and extraordinarily naive views of Conservatives are very childlike, are you 12 or have you even reached that age?
