JAPAN - A touching example of loyalty was discovered in the quake aftermath. Two reporters discovered a dishevelled-looking dog in Arahama, Sendai. They saw the dog sit next to the body of another dog, keeping watch over it. At first, the reporters thought the second dog was dead, then they saw it stirring. The healthier dog was also seen gently putting its paws on its wounded friend. Click on thumbnail to view (Photos: Internet) Both dogs were rescued and have received veterinary care.
