Heartbreaking pictures Dog dragged dead mate's body away from road and stands guard for a week:(

For seven days, the grieving animal has stood guard next to the body of his partner, unwilling to accept the death of his companion after it was hit by a car.

The dog dragged his partner's body away from the roadside on the outskirts of Filippovka, in the Perm region of Russia - and has refused to move since.

Instead he pats and paws at his mate, and tries to keep her warm with his own body, waiting for a miracle that will never come.

Scroll down for video:

3. Sorry, can't watch. Rips my guts just to think about it.

But I appreciate your posting the reminder that other living creatures are sometimes more human than we are.

8. It is a gutwrenching reminder that animals are deeply complex creatures.

I knew that animals can have profound attachments with humans but I didn't know they could be so intensley bonded with other animals. This for me is an eye-opener.

4. I can sympathies with the dog.

After being on the streets with nothing Dave became my only reason to keep going. When he left to hunt for food I could not calm down till he was back. The though of him being hurt or killed killed me everyday. I could see me like this pup many times. I can very well imagen his pain.
