One of them could be clearly seen wedged between the bars of the truck, trying to make a desperate escape, and Amanda became determined to track the dog down and save him. She and Tobias keep 49 dogs including huskies for their professional sled racing team, and other canines rescued from Romania. I asked her how the hell she would find the dog I felt so desperate to help.
She told me that every time she went to the rescue shelter she would look for him. In April , volunteers accompanied him on a flight to Amsterdam then a ferry to Harwich where Amanda was waiting to take him home. The flash of the camera had caused him to open his eyes and I was just so drawn to him.

Sure enough, on the overnight sleeper train to Edinburgh that night, he climbed onto the bed and lay across my chest. He was instinctively gentle around him. I soon noticed that if Kyle made a particular noise, Miracle would leap off the couch and go to him, wagging his tail — Kyle has always found tail wagging really funny.
You can almost see that they just both want to love each other. He is also a canine ambassador for the Soi Dog Foundation, whose famous supporters include Ricky Gervais. Miracle waits for Kyle coming home from school and leaps about excitedly when he hears the specialised taxi pull up outside. But the moment Kyle comes through the door in his pram chair, Miracle is calm and gentle. Miracle, though, is free to roam indoors because of his devotion to Kyle.
Animal psychologist Roger Mugford, who has advised the Queen on her dogs, knows a number of cases in which pets have died of grief. However, he persisted with his studies and has now mapped animal brains and found that emotions such as happiness, sadness and separation anxiety are hardwired into them. So it is not just dogs that mourn like this.

Cats do too — as I can vouch from my own experience. I work as a volunteer for the charity Cats Protection, and it is deeply upsetting to see the elderly cats come into care, whose owners have just died or been taken into a nursing home. For the first few days they sit immobile, as if stunned at the loss.

It can take weeks before they fully recover any joy in life. So, too, do elephants clearly feel emotional pain. For several years afterwards, if they are marching past where the corpse lies they will touch the whitened bones. Elephants never forget, as it were. Leao sits next to the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in catastrophic landslides in Brazil in January. We also know that elephant babies who lose their mothers to poachers show all the signs of frantic distress. The orphans that are taken to the sanctuary run by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa are often sunk in depression for weeks.
A personal keeper has to sleep with them at night so that they are not left alone.

I wonder if Theo the dog was treated like this, or was he, perhaps, just put in a kennel to grieve till his heart broke? Two of the magpies gently pecked at the corpse with their beaks. Then a couple of the birds went off and fetched some grass which they laid by the body. In a particularly horrible experiment carried out in the Fifties in America, monkeys suffered severe emotional distress when they were forced to inflict pain on each other.

One monkey was trained to press a lever every 20 seconds. If he stopped pressing it, a neighbouring monkey was given an electric shock. The monkey in control of the lever became so stressed by his horrible role that after 23 days of this he died of stomach ulcers — so stressed had it become that its stomach acidity had risen enormously. There is abundant scientific evidence now, as well as any number of anecdotal examples, that animals desperately mourn the loss of a loved one, and that pets are often overcome with grief when their owners pass on.
