Helping a friend

I've noted many times how all living creatures are equally affected by natural disasters. Bush fires, floods, eathquakes  - we're all in it together.

Here's another example.

Days after the Japanese earthquake a dog was still watching over an injured dog. When it saw an approaching TV crew it went to them and led them to its injured friend.

I found it in the UK Daily Telegraph, and the story's here.

For myself as a dog lover, that footage humanises the current crisis in Japan more than any of the other videos i've seen.

I can't comprehend the scale of human suffering currently taking place in Japan, but I can remember how sad my dog was when his sister died.

At least we humans get warnings...most of the time.

I've always wondered about my cats that if a natural disaster does occur here would I go back to rescue/search for them (if they weren't with me in the first place) and gladly the answer in my head has always been yes.

Anon@12.22 thank you, I've fixed my inexcusable mistake. I hang my head in shame.
