See the value of organ donors after a dog that was so sad about the owner dying meets a special lady.

Few things make me have more feelings than a sweet video about a loving, devoted pet.

You don't even need the sound on, although I encourage it because the music ... oh, the music. (It's from the movie "Up," so you know it's likely to make you cry.)

In this video PSA, which was created by Fundación Argentina de Trasplante Hepático and produced by DBD Argentina, a dog and an elderly owner share the kind of bond that we humans often share with our beloved pets.


When the old man collapses suddenly, the dog follows the elderly companion to the hospital.

The dog waits for days and days, hoping to see the friend again.

Finally, the hospital doors open, and the dog's head perks up, excited.

Only, it's not the elderly man coming out the door, it's a woman in a wheelchair.

You see, the old man was an organ donor. And while he might not be coming back through those doors, the dog would recognize the friend anywhere.

And the man saved a new friend's life.

My heart breaks AND fills with joy every time.

Organ donation really does save lives.

In the United States alone, 123,000 people are on the organ transplant list.

The American Transplant Foundation says that 21 people die every day while waiting for an organ transplant. That's a downer statistic.

On the flip side, one person's decision to donate organs can save up to eight lives and positively affect up to 50 people (and their families and pets).

For that last bit of info, think: cornea transplants. Every year, 40,000 people receive one. That's a lot of saved eyesight thanks to organ donation.

While stories like these often start with the sadness of a life lost, organ donation helps provide a lot of happy endings.

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Arbery was shot and killed in February near Brunswick, Georgia after being pursued in a truck by a former policeman and his son who claimed he resembled someone responsible for break-ins in the neighborhood.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
