Dog refuses to abandon friend amidst the rubble in Japan

At once heartbreaking and beautiful, this video is a testiment to the loyalty and friendship a dog is capable of. It reminds me of images from our own Gulf Coast, post-Katrina, of animals who refused to leave their front porch as they awaited the return of their people.

*Update: CNN has reported that both dogs in the video have been rescued and are receiving veterinary care.

More posts to follow on what is being done to assist in the wake of the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan and what you can do to help.

Here is an English translation of the voiceover exchange between the two reporters in the clip (translation courtesy of Toshiyuki Kitamura):

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.


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.

It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It's just amazing that they survived through this all.

Characterisation is wafer-thin.
