MAN’S BEST FRIEND Faithful dog dies next to his master’s grave after refusing to leave for 10 years
Capitán is that the name of the best-known dog in Villa Carlos Paz, a province of Cordoba in Argentina.
The animal died in the same cemetery where his owner is buried. The dog died after having spent ten years guarding the grave of his owner.
“I haven’t seen such a thing,” Said Marta Clot, the cemetery florist, remembering Captain in tears. At the age of 16, he died of several vision problems and joint complications.
The dog was a surprise gift from Miguel Guzman to his son Damian. A year later, in 2006, Miguel passed away, so the dog disappeared from the house and returned after a while and stayed next to the house.
The animal disappeared again, and then the family thought it had died or had been adopted by people. Until they found it in the cemetery, lying on Miguel’s grave. “I’m sure it came trying to find its owner,” said the florist.
Given that the dog has lived in the cemetery for much of the previous couple of years, several people are asking that the animal’s remains be deposited in the cemetery. In addition, special permission is required. Rest in peace great friend.
