Dear MEL Topic Readers

Mourning dog waits for 80 days in road where owner died

Dogs are mostly loyal. Unlike another popular long-domesticated pet animal, cats, they learn to do what the owner expects them to do maybe for a reward or a praise. Some dogs are so loyal that they keep waiting for the owner at a place where they used to meet or spend time together often, or where the owner passed away.

The former case was demonstrated by a famous Akita dog, named Hachiko in Japan. The loyal dog awaited his master’s return for nine years after his death at the train station at the precise time when they used to meet. His statue is still placed in front of the busy Shibuya station in Tokyo.

Now there is another case that a loyal dog stays in the middle of a busy street where his owner was killed. Ever since the owner of this lonely dog died on the road in the capital city of Inner Mongolia, China last August, he has been staying there. It is not clear whether he doesn’t know the fact that his owner is gone forever, or he just doesn’t want to recognize it. Whichever the motive might be, he hasn’t accepted any offer of help by other people.

Enjoy reading the article and see the video and think how much longer this poor dog will stay around there, particularly when freezing winter is approaching in Inner Mongolia.
