Tommy the dog went without food and water and braved the hot days and cold nights in Chennai, southern India, as he stood watch over the grave of his master, Bhaskar Shri, 18, who died in a car accident Aug. 2. A loyal dog in India refused to leave a graveside for two weeks after the death of his teenage owner.
In an extraordinary display of loyalty, Tommy the dog went without food and water for 15 days and braved the hot days and cold nights in Chennai, southern India, as he guarded the burial site of his master, Bhaskar Shri, 18, who died in a car accident Aug. 2.The young construction worker had adopted the dog five years ago and the two quickly became inseparable.
But when Bhaskar was killed in a car accident earlier this month, the pup couldn’t leave his side. Dawn Williams, an animal rescue officer working with Blue Cross of India, finally helped the famished dog. “I first spotted the brown dog sitting on a fresh grave one evening as I happened to walk past in the first week of August, but at the time I didn’t think anything of it,” Williams recalled.
“But on Aug. 13 I was in the area again while on a different rescue mission and saw him again. He was sitting in the same spot in the same position. It looked like he hadn’t moved for weeks.” Williams said she was convinced the dog was shedding tears when she approached him.
