Kantianism, canine style

In the midst of all this serious talk about disasters and national character, a dear friend of mine forwarded me a very touching video from Japan via an Italian news network (please excuse the brief ad at the beginning).  In the rubble of what used to be the city of Mito, in the Ibaraki Prefecture, a rescue party found this dog, who led the humans immediately to her gravely injured companion.  Muddied and undoubtedly hungry, the first dog refused to leave her wounded friend until more help arrived and the critically injured animal was treated.

It is a very moving video clip, worth the short moments it takes to view.
