Dog stands guard over deceased owner’s grave for six years

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

Capitan, a German shepherd, reportedly ran away from home after its owner, Miguel Guzman, died in 2006. A week later, the Guzman family found the dog sitting by his grave in central Argentina.

Miguel Guzman adopted Capitan in 2005 as a gift for his teenage son, Damian. And for the past six years, Capitan has continued to stand guard at Miguel's grave. The family says the dog rarely leaves the site.

"We searched for him, but he had vanished," widow Veronica Guzman told LaVoz.com. "We thought he must have got run over and died.

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

Adding to the unusual circumstances, Veronica says the family never brought Capitan to the cemetery before he was discovered there.

"It is a mystery how he managed to find the place," she said.

Cemetery director Hector Baccega says he and his staff have begun feeding and taking care of Capitan.

"He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master," Baccega said.

"During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at six o'clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave, stays there all night."

My grandma always told me

My grandma always told me stories about the little dog, Bobby, in her Scottish village that stayed on his owners grave for years. The village people came to love Bobby and fed him and he obviously became a legend. I don't know why us kids loved that story so much, but we kept asking her to tell it every time we were with her.

That dog needs a Ron Paul collar!

Contrary to current beliefs, there will be many more dogs and far fewer people in heaven.

Thanks for this story.

Thank you Steve

I never heard of dogs starting wars invading countries etc.

Proud to say I support the only presidential candidate who mentioned dogs in the GOP debates:

Loyalty

Reminds me of us, the RP supporters!

When I was reading this story

For some reason Jesse Benton came to my mind.

:)

Punishing the GOP returning it to the 3rd party status comes first to me my friend.
Write-in votes don't help with that.

Romney/Ryan 3rd place -- that's Blowback.

While I was reading your post, satan came to mind.

Whenever I see the name Jesse Benton, I associate that name with pure evil.
