Heartbroken Dog Keeps Coming Back To His Best Friend’s Grave Every Day

Last week this sad dog named Cesur lost his owner and best friend, but his loyalty towards him proved to be eternal. His human, 79-year-old Mehmet Ilhan died at a hospital in Bursa, Turkey. “Because of my father’s paralysis, they had a different kind of connection,” Mehmet’s son Ali told The Dodo. “When my father was in the hospital during his last days, Cesur stopped eating.” Still, everyone was very suprised to see how the canine behaved at the funeral…

When Mehmet’s body arrived home, Cesur would not leave its side. The dog even lead a procession formed to carry the coffin to a local mosque for the funeral. “Nobody could touch him until my father was taken to the grave and was buried,” said Ali.

Mahmet’s son brought the pooch 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,” said Ali. Mehmet’s son realized this only after one day he decided to follow the dog.

Ali says he will do everything to comfort the grieving pet: “Cesur has always been a noble animal,” said Ali. “He will live with me from now on.”

This reminds me of Hachiko. Same sad story, except this dog knows where his owner is.
