Bonded dog sticks close to his dead companion despite traffic and freezing temps

A sandy colored, mixed breed dog refused to leave his bonded canine friend's side in China late last week after the one dog was hit and killed by a car reported Saturday's Sky News.

The heartbreaking photo has gone viral on the Internet, and shows just how dedicated our four-legged companions can be to each other.

The surviving dog curled up next to his pal in the middle of the road despite the temperatures plummeting to less than 8 degrees. He stayed next to his deceased companion for the entire night.

A restaurant owner nearby brought a bar stool out to the center of the road to protect the living dog to warn drivers not to get too close.

The next day a kind person moved the dead dog to the side of the road, and even then, his friend stayed close. Finally, the dead dog was buried.

There has been no word on what happened to the surviving pooch.

We hope you find some peace in the world bonded dog, and we hope your partner will rest in peace.
