Do Dogs Grieve To Death?

Do dogs grieve the loss of a family member, or other dog in the home, to the point that they die? Yes. I know of a handful of cases where a dog died, and then a second dog in the home died within 2 weeks after the first dog died. So, if you are a dog person, and one of your dogs just died (whether from natural causes or euthanasia), and you know you are going to get another dog... why not go and adopt a dog from a shelter now? Might save the life of your other dog.
