Pic Illustrates the Loyalty, Compassion and Decency of Dogs

By Robert Paul Reyes

"In a heartbreaking photo posted by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, you see one dog comforting his friend, who is also in a lot of pain.

The dog on the right is Simon, and he is recovering from mange.

The dog on the table is Sammie. He was shot, dragged by a car and spray painted.

Both were rescued from South Carolina, but hadn`t met until this photo."


They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this photograph speaks volumes of the decency, loyalty and compassion of canines.

Simon, who is recovering from mange, comforts and consoles Sammie, who has gone through hell.

When I`m ill I appreciate the prayers and concern of my friends and family, but nothing speeds my recovery like having my faithful pooch, Mandy, by my side.

This photo is proof that dogs feel pain and show compassion for others.

Sammie is now doing a little better after undergoing a few surgeries on his legs, but she has a long road to a full recovery, and Simon is doing just fine.

There are wonderful pooches like Sammie and Simon waiting for a forever home at your local animal shelter.
