German Shepherd Sits At Owners Grave For Six Years

It’s been a rough week so here is a feel good story

An extremely dedicated dog has continued to show its loyalty, keeping watch on its owner’s grave six years after he passed away. Capitan, a German shepherd, reportedly ran away from home after its owner, Miguel Guzman, died in 2006. A week later, the Guzman family found the dog sitting by his grave in central Argentina. Miguel Guzman adopted Capitan in 2005 as a gift for his teenage son, Damian. And for the past six years, Capitan has continued to stand guard at Miguel’s grave. The family says the dog rarely leaves the site.”We searched for him, but he had vanished,” widow Veronica Guzman told LaVoz.com. “We thought he must have got run over and died.’The following Sunday we went to the cemetery, and Damian recognized his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing as if he were crying.” Adding to the unusual circumstances, Veronica says the family never brought Capitan to the cemetery before he was discovered there.—Yahoo

Sometimes it seems as if the world is almost literally falling apart. That’s why you need stories like this. You have to be reminded that there is some good left in this world, and it is worth fighting for. You can talk about the wheel and sliced bread all you want. But teaming up with dogs was mankind’s greatest accomplishment. Men may have studied cats to learn how to fight, but they studied dogs to learn how to love. (Best line I’ve ever written.)
