Every day, a dog visits the cemetery in Cañada de Gómez, Argentina, where his owner is buried.
Katherine of Life With Dogs writes that cemetery workers captured these heartbreaking pictures of the faithful “creature without sin” in front of his owner’s last resting place.
Witnesses say the dog visits his deceased owner for hours and at times the dog whines or cries for the human that is no longer with him. At the end of the day, the dogt leaves the cemetery and comes back the next day.
This dog is not the only one in Argentina who frequents burial grounds. There are two other dogs, Capitán and Alicio.
For six years, a dog named Capitán has stayed by his owner’s graveside in Villa Carlos Paz Cordoba, Argentina. Every day at 6pm, he lays by Miguel Guzmán’s headstone, on faithful vigil. The dog’s remarkable story of loyalty began on March 24, 2006, when Miguel, who was Capitán’s owner, passed away. As soon as Capitán realized Miguel was no longer at home, he left to search for him and miraculously managed to find Miguel’s grave in the nearby cemetery. Since then, the dog has stayed by his deceased owner’s side and refuses to return home.
Capitán was reportedly looked after by staff at the cemetery. Although he sometimes returned to his previous home for visits, he always came back to the cemetery to sleep by the grave of his owner.
