Dog saves dog, or tries, on video

I don’t know anything about this video, but it was on The Huffington Post today, so I’m guessing it’s legit. If so, it’s one of the most moving things I’ve ever seen.

If any of you can provide a translation, send it along.

All I got was that the dog which was hit died.
It is very touching though.
It`s amazing that the 2nd one didn`t get hit.

You`ll hear “muerto” which is dead in Spanish.

Most of the time I can listen to Spanish news broadcasts and understand them, but this is too soft and too fast for me. So I have asked my friend, Maria, to give us the whole story. She’ll either post here or write to me and I’ll pass it along.

One thing that comes through in the universal language is that dogs have something a lot of us humans lack: Nobility of spirit.

Doesn’t surprise me.

I used to live on the water and I had a chocolate lab that loved to swim. We added steps to our pier so he could climb out.

One day, he was retrieving in the water and got out. He was standing by my side when I saw a dog swimming down the canal. A few seconds later, the frantic owner came over. She was freaking out because her dog had been swimming for an hour. I assured her he was fine and could probably swim another 4 hours. Then I helped coax him down to our pier. The tide was low and she and I didn’t have the strength to pull him out and up onto the pier.

We got him down to my pier, but he didn’t realize the steps were there. Just as the owner started crying again, my lab jumped in. I’m thinking, “great, now we gotta get them both out”.

But my lab did something amazing. He swam to the dog, took his collar in his mouth, and swam him over to the steps. Then my lab climbed out onto the pier and the dog followed.

It was truly amazing to see.

If you go to the Huffington Post site and read the comments, everyone says the newspeople said they both lived. ?

I just saw this video on another site and there are a number of people saying the dog died.
I`ll wait for the complete translation.
There`s also a comment saying that the 1st dog works for the roads clean up crew and this is it`s job??
