Dog Won’t Leave Companion’s Grave

By Lisa Spector, Canine Music Expert, Juilliard Graduate, and co-founder of Through a Dog’s Ear.

I’ve written about a dog in the United States who attended the funeral of his person, a Navy Seal, and wouldn’t leave the casket. More recently, a faithful dog in China hasn’t left the grave where his person was recently buried, not even to eat or go for a walk. After seven days of him not budging for anything, local residents stopped trying to coerce him away and continue to bring him food and water. If he chooses to stay and mourn, they will build him a kennel graveside. Watch this heart warming video, which I first viewed at

Very sad this. Wish there was some way to help these dogs able to carry on without their dead masters.

a sad life for a dog though they are ever hopeful, my dog who begs is a good example of this.
