The unwavering loyalty and devotion of the grieving dog at its owner’s grave for 10 consecutive days has moved millions of people to tears and moved by its deep sadness.

 A pious canine called Capitan has failed after sleeping at his master’s graveside every night for 11 times. 


 The black Alsatian was some four times old when Miguel Guzman, who had bought the canine as a present for his son, Damian, passed away in 2006 in Villa Carlos Paz, near Cordoba, Argentina’s alternate megacity. 


 The canine faded not long latterly and the family allowed

 he’d set up a new home or had been killed. 


 But several months latterly, on one of their visits to the cemetery during 2007, there was Capitan. To their astonishment, neighbours told them how they started to feed him when they realised he slept by the grave each night. 


 And so the grieving hound continued his sad surveillance until dying himself a many days agone

 at about 15 times of age, the diurnal review La Voz reported. 


 What amazed the family the most was that the cemetery was a long way from where they live and Capitan had noway accompanied them there before he faded. 


 Six times agone

 , Mr Guzman’s widow Veronica, reflecting on the pet’s graveside surveillance, told Argentina’s Cordoba review’ We searched for him but he’d dissolved. We allowed

 he must have got run over and failed. 


 The following Sunday we went to the cemetery and Damian recognised his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing, as if he were crying.’ 


 She added’ We had noway taken him to the cemetery so it’s a riddle how he managed to find the place. 


 We went back the coming Sunday, and he was there again. This time, he followed us home and spent a bit of time with us, but also went back to the cemetery before it started getting dark. 


 I do not suppose he wanted to leave Miguel on his own at night.’ 


 The cemetery’s director Hector Baccega added’ He turned up then one day, all on his own, and started wandering each around the cemetery until he ultimately set up the grave of his master. 


 During the day he occasionally has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at sixo’clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave stays there all night.’ 


 Staff at the cemetery fed and took care of the faithful doggy . 


 Mr Guzman’s son Damian said he’d tried to bring Capitan home several times, but he always went straight back to the cemetery. 


 Poignantly, he added’ I suppose he is going to be there until he dies too. He is looking after my pater



 The story is analogous to that of Hachiko, an Akita who’s said to have awaited at a Tokyo train station for its master to return each day for nine times from May 1925, following proprietor Hidesaburo Ueno’s death at work.
