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.
Detroit, Michigan is known for its brutal winters, so when Terri Looby, a volunteer with Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) received a call a few days before Christmas that there was a small dog walking the streets, she used her lunch break to locate the poor dog.
Looby and a coworker set out to find the dog, driving up and down the street, but didn’t see anything until they passed a heap of trash waiting for curbside pickup.
“There were some boxes, trash bags and a chair sitting at the curb for pickup day,” Looby told The Dodo. “As we passed the trash, I noticed that there was a dog curled up in the tightest little ball possible.”
The dog was just trying to keep warm in the subzero temperatures, surrounded by snow, and Looby knew he needed help. Even though he didn’t fit the “small dog” description, she lured him into her car with the smell of a chicken patty wafting throughout the car. Even though he had been wronged by the humans that left him behind, he was quick to trust Looby. She said,
“As soon as the dog heard us, he picked his head up and looked at me. I said, ‘Hi baby, it’s OK. Come see me.’ His tail was wagging, and he jumped off the chair and started limping toward me. He knew he was safe!”
When Robert Kugler was told his beloved chocolate lab, Bella, had cancer, he was faced with a difficult decision. He could put Bella down – and immediately end their 9 year friendship, or have one of her legs amputated, buying the precious pup 3-6 more months.
Robert knew he had to do something extraordinary for his best friend. And so, Bella had one of her legs amputated and the partners in crime set off to see the world together.
