It was a highly moving moment as I witnessed the unwavering loyalty of a dog for the very first time in my existence.
The loyal canine walked alongside the funeral procession for a distance of 3 kilometers without taking a break. The dog stayed with its owner until the final destination, the cemetery, where the owner was laid to rest.
In early June, an elderly woman from Malaysia passed away due to her old age and deteriorating health. Her loved ones, family members, and neighbors accompanied her on her final journey to the cemetery. During the procession, a dog followed them all the way to the burial ground, covering a distance of almost 3 kilometers.
The dog, Bobby, had been the deceased woman’s loyal companion for several years. As the owner breathed her last, Bobby was left heartbroken and unable to express his sorrow. He chose to channel his emotions by running around during the funeral procession. Accompanying the hearse, Bobby silently followed it to the cemetery and refused to stop until they reached their destination.
As the convoy stopped at the cemetery, Bobby was seen sticking close to the car that carried his owner’s remains. He kept sniffing and searching for his master, with his mouth open from exhaustion. When the hole was dug, Bobby quickly raced towards it and laid next to it. Despite being chased away, he refused to leave the spot. As the coffin was lowered, Bobby stayed there solemnly as if bidding his final farewell to his master.
It was only after being reassured and comforted by his offspring that Bobby reluctantly left the burial site. This touching incident moved everyone to tears, with many commenting on the dog’s unwavering loyalty. It was an unforgettable moment, as many had never witnessed such devotion in a canine before.
I’m uncertain about the amount of time it will take for Bobby to heal from the departure of his previous caretaker. Nevertheless, there’s some comfort in knowing that he won’t have to endure a solitary existence for the remainder of his life. The grandchildren of the elderly man have kindly agreed to bring Bobby back home.
