Some say that dogs are just dumb animals. Most of them are smarter and more loyal then anyone I ever met.
A loyal dog which has waited on a busy road for more than 80 days after its owner died there has captured the hearts of online communities in China.
In August, a woman died on a road cutting through Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. Every day since she died, her dog has made its way back to that same spot on that same street to wait for her.
A video of the dog waiting on the road - below - has been viewed 1.4 million views on Chinese micro-blogging website Sina Weibo.
China's Pear Video website said the dog has been seen in the road every day since its owner died on 21 August.
"This owner's relationship with her dog was very deep. After she was killed, this little dog has just stayed standing guard,” a taxi driver told Pear Video, translated by the BBC. "Every day it's in the road; I always see it. The relationship between man and dog is so true."
He said other people on the road tried to care for the animal. “Drivers often give the little dog bits of food, but when we get out, he goes away."
