I guess 'habit' versus 'planning' would be a good way to sum it up, guys.

But like Irvine said, I'm not a goddamn monkey. And nor was my grandfather. My great grandfather, on the other hand...

One of our cats certainly appeared to be grieving for a couple days when our 18-year-old dog, whom she'd known her whole life and who'd always seemed to be her favorite playmate, died last summer--I really wouldn't know how else to describe her behavior. Of course, I can't know for sure that she really experienced something resembling 'recognition of death' as we'd understand that, but certainly her agitation, repeated trips to check the spot where he'd always slept, etc., didn't appear arbitrary, and she'd never acted like that on the many occasions where he'd been away at the kennel or the vet's for a few days before.
I hear ya because when one of my cats unexpectedly passed-away in his sleep in late October of 2008, my other kitties exhibited signs of mourning.
The signs included:
1. The 3 surviving cats (Taffy, Coco and Huggy-bear) walked up to sniff Morris Kitty's place on the sofa.

2. The day of the buriel, Coco and Huggy-Bear went up to each other, let out a mournful sounding meow, turned and walked away.

Grieving dog

Leao, a medium-sized brown mutt, lies next to the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in the catastrophic landslides caused by heavy rain. This AFP/Getty picture was taken on Saturday, the second consecutive day that the dog refused to leave the woman's grave at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero.

oh God, they put it to sappy music

I hate the end. I really hope someone took care of the dog and didn't just let it wander off by itself

Can't bring myself to watch it, even though they both survived

yahoo.com

It's a universal truth that dogs are man's best friend, but they're pretty darn loyal to their own as well. Case in point: this tear-inducing video showing a dog, shivering and disoriented, remaining loyally by the side of a stricken fellow canine amid the devastation of the Japanese tsunami.


UPDATE: CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town.

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.

Where?

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.
