A dog is only part of your world, for your dog you are it's whole world

A story to show just what we mean to them

Capitan the Dog Hero

The bond between dog and master goes beyond the grave, as evidenced by Capitán's unyielding loyalty to his master Miguel Guzmán, from Argentina. Capitán went missing for a few days, but he was eventually found lying in the cemetery next to Guzmán's resting place.

The remarkable part about this story is that Miguel died in a hospital, and his body was taken to a funeral home far away from where he lived. Capitán had never been to the cemetery before.

The first time the funeral director saw Capitán, he arrived at the cemetery alone. The dog did a few laps through the tombstones before finding his master's grave — all on his own. Capitán continues to visit his old master every single day, at 6:00 p.m., like clockwork.

Perhaps we should all remember this the next time we get annoyed at our canine companions for missing us after two minutes out the room.
