Earlier this month, an elderly woman passed away in Malaysia, leaving behind not only her grieving relatives, but, as it turns out, a loyal doggie named Bobby, who refused to miss her funeral and followed the whole procession for 2 miles. As the row of cars were approaching the cemetery, the woman’s great-grandson, Leong Khai Wai, noticed a pooch running alongside the procession, and, to his surprise, realized it was Bobby.
“I don’t think anyone knew he was following,” Leong told The Dodo. It is unknown whether anyone offered the doggie a ride, but it was clear nothing could have stopped Bobby from saying his last goodbye to his beloved owner.
Everyone at the funeral was touched by the unexpected presence of the canine. “They said it was the first time they’d ever seen such extreme loyalty in a dog,” Leong recounted.
