The devastated dog remained with the female puppy for two days until a kindhearted person buried her.
Witnesses in Pixian County, southwest China’s Sichuan Province, reported they observed two dogs, a grey one and a brown one, lying in the middle of the roadway.
The brother, weakened by the ravages of time and illness, lay motionless on a soft blanket, his breathing shallow and labored. His sister, filled with a mix of sadness and devotion, nestled close to him, her warmth embracing his frail body. With every ounce of her being, she sought to bring comfort and solace to her beloved brother.
The brown puppy was shielding the body of the grey one from getting hit by any passing automobiles by springing up and barking whenever one went near.
They stayed in the same position for many days until a person took them to safety along the side of the road.
The onlookers, deeply moved by the scene unfolding before them, could feel the weight of the sister’s love and the depth of her grief. It was a moment of pure vulnerability and raw emotion, where time seemed to stand still. In that fleeting instant, the power of unconditional love transcended the boundaries of species, leaving an indelible mark on all who bore witness.
Another member of the public then dug a hole to bury the grey dog. Even then, its sibling rushed into the hole too reluctant to leave its partner.
Finally, the brown dog was retrieved by employees from a nearby animal protection shelter where it is being cared for.
