Loyal to the end

I have had a long running argument with non-pet owners about the intelligence and awareness of our canine friends. One of my college professors believed that all animals did not have the ability to think and said their intelligence consisted of only being able to move toward comfort (food, heat on a cold day, etc) or away from discomfort. Here is one more item of evidence to support my claim that mammals have a high level of intelligence, emotions, and feelings. The link to the following video was taken at the funeral of Jon Tumilson, a navy seal. His loyal dog, Hawkeye lay down near his casket during the funeral. Click on the title of this article to view the YouTube video.
