Dog Buries Puppy: Watch Heartbreaking Video Of Dead Puppy Burial [VIDEO]
A dog buries a puppy before a gathering crowd in the Middle East. One of the onlookers recorded a video of the moment and shared it on the Internet. The video quickly garnered a quarter million views, becoming one of the most shared videos this week.
According to multiple sources, the dog that approached the dead puppy is a stray mongrel and is not the mother of the poor pup. Onlookers gathered as they witnessed the dog circle and tenderly sniff the lifeless puppy after discovering it by a ditch in the midday sun.

Rather than leave the puppy out in the open for scavenger animals to tear at its corpse, the stray took it upon itself to bury the puppy with touching care. The stray dog quietly worked the sand and dirt, raking the earth over the dead puppy for a little more than three minutes without interruption.
Observers of the video remarked the solemnity of the ceremony. The stray dog did not mourn, reflect, or even bark.
Eventually, the puppy's body was out of sight, entirely covered by the dirt. Satisfied with the burial, the stray simply turned around and trotted away in silence.
Onlookers were stunned by the remarkably dignified burial ceremony.
