A faithful dog refused to part with the coffin that carried her deceased owner. It was her way of expressing her unconditional love for him – literally until the end of her days.
For a long time, dogs have shown the degree of loyalty they can have for their owners. Anyone who has a dog in his life knows that when he gets home, a being will be waiting for him who, without asking for anything in return, is willing to accompany him forever , even if that “always” is after death..
arious demonstrations exist on this assertion and today Lessie’s story reminds us how loyal and unconditional a furry friend can be.
This black dog mourns her owner.
Lessie is a furry girl from Buonabitacolo, a small town in the province of Salerno, in southern Italy, which has always been characterized by an unquestionable love for her owner.
She, like many other puppies, was incapable of suspecting that one day her human might even be missing. But sadly, death is inexorable and affects everyone equally.
A few months ago, Lessie was devastated to lose her human dad forever. This man with whom she had shared the last years of her life.
Confused and heartbroken, the mestiza did not want to detach herself from her owner’s body for a moment during the funeral ceremony.
It seems that Lessie rejected the fact that her human had to be put in that small box, so uncomfortable. She was not sure what was happening, so she preferred to accompany him at all times and continue to protect him until the end.
What the furry one didn’t know is that her time had expired.
Lessie’s photos at the funeral gave much to talk about on social networks, after one of those present decided to share them on Facebook.
With her languid little face and without making much movement, the furry one got on the hearse that took the body to the cemetery.
Undaunted Lessie accompanied her dad at all times and this surprised more than one.
The dog with a bell on her neck, showed exemplary behavior and honored the memory of her owner with her presence. There is no doubt that furry ones often give us the best lessons, and this was no exception.
That image of the mestiza next to the urn, next to the flowers and with an immense load of desolation in her eyes, was enough for the hearts of these people to take pity and decide to keep her at home.
This man’s own relatives were captivated by Lessie’s loyalty.
Lessie’s life must continue and her image will remain engraved in the memory of many as the most beautiful sign of fidelity. She recovers from the absence and has been blessed by so many people who applaud her behavior.
“God bless this little dog. They are man’s best friend and never forget their owners even if they have been bad,” wrote a woman on Facebook.
For their part, the owners of the Ferro di Montesano sulla Maricati funeral home , where the events took place, assured that the presence of the dog next to the coffin was not planned at all.
They themselves were surprised by the loving gesture of the little animal, and at the same time they were moved to see the deep love of the dog for its owner.
Without a doubt, dogs are angels on this earth and like Lessie they don’t deserve to be alone, especially when they show their love to the last consequences.
