This really touched my heart...

Loyal dog shows up at church every day after owner dies

Call him Ciccio the Faithful. This 12-year-old German shepherd, who has attended church every day since his owner died in November, used to escort her to church every afternoon when she was alive.

Beautiful story!

Wow, that is so touching.......  The dog, from the 4th picture, looks like it might have some Great Pyrenees.   At any rate, what a beautiful, gentle dog!  His owner was blessed to have such a companion.
