A dog in China withstood freezing temperatures and busy traffic to stand guard over the body of his dead friend who had been run over.
Passer-by placed a stool next to the pair to warn oncoming vehicles.
The faithful hound stood stayed overnight despite temperatures plummeting to -13C.
One woman said: "It is our stool. A kind-hearted woman put it next to the dogs to protect them from being hit again by another car," reports Sky News.
The body of the dead dog was eventually removed by a restaurant owner who buried it under a tree, still followed by his friend.
Footage of the heart-breaking incident quickly went viral on the internet.
