Loyal Dog Insists On Staying By His Owners Side As She’s Laid To Rest

Recently, 95-year-old Maria Isabel Benites Chamba passed away. All her friends and family came to pay their respects when she was laid to rest.

It was one particular guest of the funeral who wanted to do more.

Chamba’s beloved dog Bumer refused to leave her side, right until the very end.

Bumer stayed as close by as he could during Chamba’s wake, just like he had done so when she was still alive.

“You could see the loyalty and affection that existed between her and her dog,” a spokesperson for Funeraria Santa Rosa, told The Dodo. “He was always there with his owner.”

After the ceremony had finished, as tradition, a parade of attendees followed the coffin to the cemetery to complete the practice.

As you can imagine, Bumer also insisted on coming.

“He circled the hearse before hopping aboard as if to say, ‘I want to go and say goodbye to my mom. A tremendous example of loyalty.”

Bumer’s tremendous love for Chamba was clear for everyone to see in that touching moment.

Hopefully, in time, Bumer’s broken heart will be able to heal, and he may pass on his faithfulness.

But for now, he is among the love and warmth of Chamba’s family.
