The cream-coloured dog desperately pawed and mournfully barked at its dead friend until their own came to pick them up. According to a report from Huanqui.com، an affiliation to People's Daily Online، the tragic incident took place at Nianli town of Quzhou city yesterday.

The cream-coloured dog desperately pawed the husky's lifeless body in a bid to revive its life. Video footage shared by Pear Video shows the saddened pooch attempting to wake up the dead dog. It mourned its friend's death on the road where cars drove past constantly.
