Dog Keeps Vigil at Owner’s Grave for 6 Years – Neatorama

Filed under: Animals, News, Pictures — Scottie @ 18:07

My son James sent me this.  James knows how much I love animals.  I can’t describe how much my life has changed since he moved in and I can’t describe how much I love him.  He is really a good young man and I am proud to some one he calls dad.  I just wish he could have been my son from his birth or earliest years.  Some times we don’t agree, but I will always love him with all I am.

Dog Keeps Vigil at Owner’s Grave for 6 Years – Neatorama.

Dog Keeps Vigil at Owner’s Grave for 6 Years

Capitán was adopted as a puppy by Miguel Guzmán of Villa Carlos Paz Cordoba, Argentina, in 2005. He got the German Shepherd for his son Damien, but the puppy loved Miguel. Then in March of 2006, Miguel died. The dog disappeared for a while, and the family thought he’d gone to live with someone else. But when they visited Miguel Guzmán’s grave, there was Capitán. The dog refuses to leave the cemetery, even six years later.

Hector Baccega, the administrator of the Villa Carlos Paz Cordoba cemetery, told the press that Capitán has won the affection and respect of all the cemetery caretakers, who always make sure he’s properly fed and up-to-date with his immunizations. At one point they even brought in a vet, after Capitán showed up with a broken leg. Baccega says Capitán walks with him through the cemetery every day, but as night approaches, he always returns to Miguel’s graveside and lays his head down next to the headstone. He feels this amazing dog is teaching humans a valuable lesson about cherishing the memory of their loved ones.

    Hello Carlitos…I have heard of similar things, the four legged friends we make sure do get attached to us. The story made me cry a little. Hugs
