(Newser) – Doggone it, that's loyalty. A faithful black Labrador braved whizzing traffic to stick with a pal fatally hit by a car on a busy boulevard in Los Angeles County. A good Samaritan placed traffic cones to protect the dogs and took a cell-phone video of the arresting sight, and animal control was contacted. Though it was too late for her pal, the two-year-old female lab was taken to a local shelter, where the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center staff dubbed her "Grace," and "showered her with admiration and love," said a spokesman. If the dog isn't claimed by her owner, she'll be put up for adoption. "When I saw the video clip taken from a passer-by's cell phone, it made me emotional," a staffer told the SGVN Tribune.
