Various factors like death can test a dog’s loyalty to his human, and this happened to Capitan and his owner Miguel Guzman. The demise of his owner caused sadness to Capitan, so this made him stay beside Miguel’s grave for six long years. No one noticed the absence of Capitan on the first few days after Miguel’s death. They only found out when they visited their beloved’s grave, and saw Capitan beside his tomb.
Capitan’s story is unique because after Miguel died in the hospital, his body was brought to a funeral home far from his hometown. Therefore, Capitan is not aware of what happened to his beloved master, and he also never visited the cemetery in his life. Capitan’s actions prove how faithful dogs can be to their humans.
The funeral director noticed Capitan roaming around the area, carefully searching for Miguel’s grave. The moment he found where it was, the dog visited his owner’s tomb every day at 6:00 p.m., without a miss. This act touched Damian, Miguel’s 13-year-old son, so he convinced his family to let the dog stay at the grave from then on.
Damian thinks that Capitan looks after his father, and that made him feel happy. He knows that his most loyal friend guards his father, and he appreciates what the dog does. Even Veronica Moreno, Miguel’s widow, said she didn’t like the dog the first time she saw him. But now, Capitan impressed her as she saw how loyal he is to her husband.
This act of loyalty only shows that when you treat your pet like a family, they will also treat you like their own family too. Dogs are indeed a perfect companion to humans. This kind of loyalty and faithfulness should inspire people as it is rare to find such nowadays.
