An extremely dedicated dog has continued to show its loyalty, keeping watch on its owner's grave six years after he passed away.

From the article: "Cemetery director Hector Baccega says he and his staff have begun feeding and taking care of Capitan."

The article says the dog disappeared when the man died then showed up at the cemetery. Poor animal may feel guilty that he wasn't there when his owner passed. Now the dog won't leave him again. What a sad yet beautiful story.

Someone suggested the dog just sat there to blow a fart in the puddle for effect. That kind of takes away the heartbreaking impression one initially had. :w00t:  ;)
But I would do just as you, pick the dog up and take him home.
