Dog Watches Over Owners Grave Six Years Now

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 "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.

Reminds me of Hachiko. Such a sad film ( I cried!) based on a true story. Therefore a statue of Hachiko exists in ... I think it's Shibuya.

I'd like to know what you think of the movie after you've seen it :-)

Well, I watched it last night. The dog in it seemed a bit uninspiring, but it was on good looking dog! Also, I don't like Richard Gere that much. Overall it was a really good movie though! It certainly brought a couple of tears to my eye.

I want a doggie!
