Time and again, dogs have proved that "man's best friend" is more than just an expression. A black Labrador retriever named Grace is exemplifying that in an entirely new way and being hailed as more than just good companion. She is being called a loyal friend to the end and beyond. A motorist in La Puente, California, captured video of Grace lying down next to her friend, a yellow Labrador retriever who had been struck and injured by another vehicle.
Grace lies patiently next to the other dog as cars whiz by dangerously close to the lane she and her companion are positioned in. She does not seem bothered by the noise or the busy street as she stays by her companion's side. The motorist who shot the video put out safety cones to protect the dogs and then called animal control.
So far, the video has been viewed almost 200,000 times on YouTube. Unfortunately, Grace's companion did not survive. As for Grace, she is up for adoption at the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter. Shelter workers say that she appears to have been well cared for, but no owner has come forward yet to claim her. With all the attention she's getting on the Web and in the news for her loyalty, Grace should have no problem finding a new home.
