When Samuel Flores was driving by Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery recently, he saw something that made him pull over immediately. A dog was solemnly standing guard over his dying friend — we can only imagine he didn’t want his buddy to pass through to the next life alone.
Turning to Facebook, he hoped to enlist the aid of shelters willing to come out and help the dogs. Luckily, Julie Fennell, a local animal lover and advocate, was nearby and jumped into action.
Staying with his friend who appeared to have been hit by a car, this loyal dog not only provided comfort but also dragged him off the road away from further harm.
The gentle giant was so dedicated to his best friend.
So vigilant was he, that when Fennell first approached, he barked for her to stay away. He needed to protect his friend.
When he could see that she only meant to help, he relented.
Fennell loaded the two dogs into her car and took them to Dallas Animal Services. This was how he thanked her.
