    Great rendition Flashy & a testament to 'Man's Best Friend'
    I had seen a similar TV story of a dog that went though all
    kind of trials in saving an incapacitated teen, in a remote
    location on a family farm,(Texas I think)- Will try to find vid.

    OK, so am I stupid for having tears in my eyes now (seriously) ?

    However, please be careful associating human emotions to animals. They have their own emotions and can sometime emulate ours, but usually are not the same.

    Amazing Story. Thank you

    This is a very heartwarming story. And to think that in China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea they eat dogs.

    Well. Then again, I suppose there is really not much difference in the larger picture between eating dogs, rabbits, deer, chickens, pigs, cows -- buffalo stew, ostrich meatballs, stuffed rabbit, lemon-butter braised duck. --- Flesh is flesh, and meat is murder.


    We're all one big family, when all is said:

    Vegetarian here! Not many of us in Texas. LOL

    If you want another great dog story (true) look up Greyfriar's Bobby. Talk about unending loyalty.

    Dogs were humans' first friends in the world. We've been through a lot together. Right now I have two who spend a great deal of time helping me keep my sanity.

    I have no tolerance for anyone who abuses dogs and I think anyone who eats them is a fucking barbarian.
