In San Bernardino, California, a two-year-old terrier mourned the death of his companion, and although his best friend had been struck and killed by a vehicle along a busy street, Felix didn’t leave his side. All night cars slowed down to avoid hitting the dog, who just refused to leave; fortunately a San Bernardino Animal Control officer arrived to help.
The compassionate officer tried to lure Felix away from his friend – attempting to explain to the forlorn dog there was nothing anyone could do to help, but the loyal pooch just couldn’t be convinced. And when the officer tenderly picked up Felix’ dead companion and placed him in the truck, Felix obediently followed. What humans can learn from their canine friends.
