Squirrel love

I have long thought that animals can teach us many things:  hope, patience, determination, bravery and loyalty being chief among them.  This heart-wrenching video confirms to me two things:  squirrels have meaningful relationships  (dare I say, ‘love’) and they also exhibit fierce protection and anguish in the face of death.

It is likely that one dead animal on the road has left behind a mate or friend, a parent, a sibling or an offspring.  We should be more mindful of our animal companions on this planet and treat them with more compassion and respect.
