It was George Graham Vest who, in 1870, said, “The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.”
Dogs have been touted to be man’s best friend. And a dog in China has shown that he is indeed his master’s best friend.
His owner Lao Pan, who died aged 68 earlier this month, lived alone in a little house in the village of Panjiatun with just the dog for company.
In a tear-jerking display of loyalty, this faithful yellow dog cannot bear to be parted from his master, refusing to leave his late master’s graveside even after going seven days without food.
Seeing that the dog had not eaten any meal for seven days, concerned villagers began bringing food and water to the graveside and even plan to build a little kennel for the dog to curl up in at night.
A villager decided to adopt the dog and brought him back home but he immediately escaped and rushed back to be close to his late master.
