Heartbreaking Tearjerker of the Day: After Lao Pan passed away this month at 68, his only Earthly companion, a light-haired dog, disappeared from his home in Panjiatun, a village near Qingdao, China.
Residents of the village later found the mutt sitting by his former owner’s grave site, where he remained for seven days, unmoved by the villagers efforts to coax him away with food.
When they forcibly removed him and gave him some sweet buns to eat, he merely took the buns and brought them back to the grave. They eventually relented and brought the food to him.
Sky News reports that there a plans to build a kennel for the dog inside the graveyard, so that he can always be near his best friend.
