Dogs’ loyalty sometimes exceed the lifetime of their owners. Last week, this sad dog, Cesur, lost his human. 79-year-old Mehmet Ilhan passed away peacefully at a hospital in Turkey and his best friend was notably dejected.
“When my father was in the hospital during his last days, Cesur stopped eating.”
When Mehmet’s family brought his body home, Cesur would not leave his side.
The day of the funeral, the dog even led the procession all the way to where Mehmet’s grave was located.
Ali brought the dog home, but for the last five days since the funeral, Cesur continued returning to his owner’s grave.
“The people who work in the cemetery say the first thing he does in the morning is visit the grave of my father.”
Ali says he will do everything to comfort the grieving pet: “Cesur has always been a noble animal.”
“He will live with me from now on.”
