I have to share with you this amazing story of courage and compassion.  After reading this you cannot deny the fact that animals are sentient beings, fully aware thinking creatures capable of emotions.

Two dogs were stranded on a railway track during the bitter cold of a Ukraine winter. It is Christmas day, one of the companions is seriously injured unable to move, the other never leaves her side for two days during which trains pass over them.

"Lucy had an injury and was unable to stand or move. Panda remained right by her side, warming her with his body in the freezing cold.

A train engineer contacted a group of animal rescue volunteers including Denis Malafeyev, telling them hed seen the dogs on the tracks for two days. Malafeyev and the others took off to try to save them.

I saw a train approaching and felt sick, he wrote on Facebook. The male dog heard the sound of the approaching train, came close to the female dog and laid down next to her. Both of them pushed their heads toward the ground and let the train pass.

A viral video Malafeyev posted shows the dogs being run over by the speeding train. Its chilling to think that this wasnt the first time this happened to the dogs."
