When the bells of the Santa Maria Assunta church begin to toll each afternoon in San Donaci near Brindisi, the 12-year-old German Shepherd sets off from the village to get himself a front row seat next to the altar, Il Messaggero newspaper said.
This is so heartbreaking when an animal grieves for their master to the point of dying of a broken heart. This is one of those stories that makes you cry and wish you could help the dog get past its grief. :(
In Edinburgh we have a statue to Greyfriar's Bobbie. He was a wonderful little dog who was totally devoted to his master. When the master died the dog sat on his grave daily
It is entirely too sad....regarding comment, from BostonPD, it'd be a fitting thing to do, regarding trying to help the dog....but it'd be a might bit difficult, since the dog has passed away over a year ago.....
Dogs like humans have feelings and are loyal to the owners. This is a sad thing to happen to an animal that gave its life as a carefree dog to help its owner. I do not take this lightly nor do I take the murder of innocent babies. That is the most horrible thing a human can do. Yet we let the Drs. etc. put in a clinic and butcher them by the thousands. Now our Gov. is for it, leave the animals alone and kill the babies is our motto. This is really a twisted Gov. and the people that support it are also. WE are to love all people and help anyone we can. The law says it is the womans body so she has a right to do as she sees fit. She has no rights to kill anyone. The right to not have a baby should be exercised before she has sex. If she does not want a baby she knows it, so it is simple to have some surgery and prevent it. Then she would be free to do as she pleases with her body. She will answer to God as we all will for sins. Many people have no thoughts when it comes to killing others. Mothers to be are no different if they murder, or the boy that killed the children at the schools. You cant seperate murder. It is all the same. It is a sin we must answer for.
unfortunately the dog in the church has passed away I heard. Possibly from grief , so sad.
experience this is rewarding for soul
Saw this movie, too. So moving, so sad, but a great story.
The ending of that movie was that the dogs owner walked back out the front doors of the train station, the dog got youthful again and happy after waiting many years, but then what it really was, was that the dog had died and the owner came to be with his dog in death...
How impressive, that the village has adopted her three rescue dogs, and the Priest says he couldn't do without him,..coming to mass. It takes a village to raise a child, this village is raising her three rescue dogs. Way to go!
