If you ever questioned why dogs are considered to be “man’s best friend,” this story erase all your doubts. Maria Margherita Lochi adopted a stray German shepherd named Tommy. She brought the dog with her to church each day. Tommy was well-behaved during the mass, he sit at the feet of his owner. This daily activity created a strong bond between the lady and the dog, which the dog didn’t forget.
When the lady died, her funeral was held in the same church, Santa Maria Assunta Church in San Donaci, Italy. To the surprise of everyone the German shepherd kept on attending mass in the church everyday.
The church’s priest and the community, touched by the dog’s loyalty, let the dog stay during the mass. The community also adopted the dog and would bring food for the canine.
