Loyal Dog In China Refuses To Leave Owner's Grave, Goes Week Without Food

Quote:


Lao Pan, an unmarried man without much family, found close companionship with his loyal dog. And even through tragedy, their steadfast bond lives on.

Pan lived in the Chinese village of Panjiatun, but died earlier this month at the age of 68. His furry friend was found by villagers at Pan's grave safeguarding the site according to BBC News. The loyal pup refused to leave even after going seven days without food.

Sky News reports that since noticing the dog, villagers have been bringing food and water to the gravesite, and are even planning to build a kennel there for the dog to sleep in.

This dog's loyalty draws parallels to other famously loyal dogs, Digital Journal points out, such as Hachiko, Japan's most faithful dog.

Hachiko would greet his master at the train station each evening in Japan, until one day his owner had a stroke and died at work. Although Hachiko was adopted, his loyalty remained. Legend has it that Hachiko went to the train station each night to wait for his master.

But perhaps more likely, Sky News highlights the similarities between this yellow dog and Edinburgh's Greyfriars Bobby -- a dog who returned to his master's grave every day for 14 years. The dog now has a statue erected in honor of his loyalty.
That's why i love dogs!

That's a surprise. The way they treat dogs over there, that's one lucky dog. I have a inner hate for china because of the way they treat dogs, but this was a nice story.
