His owner died, so what’s a dog to do? Well, go to the church every day.

I don’t know how I missed seeing this story at the beginning of the year. It definitely made the year in review though.

Italy Dog Frequent Churchgoer Since Owner Died

By Jan 16, 2013

ROME – Since his owner died two months ago, Tommy the dog has not missed a single mass in the small church in southern Italy where his mistress’s funeral was held, Italian media said Wednesday.

When the bells of the Santa Maria Assunta church begin to toll each afternoon in San Donaci near Brindisi, the 12-year-old German Shepherd sets off from the village to get himself a front row seat next to the altar, Il Messaggero newspaper said. More

I think dogs could teach us a few things about loyalty. And he does it without email, cell phone, or texting.

    How sweet, Bullright. What an awesome post the day before a new year begins!

    Happy New Year to you, your family and friends.

    Wonderful story Bull! It’s so nice to be able to smile and feel my heart warm when the Bastard In Chief makes it so easy to fill the air with his stench of destruction 24/7/365. Thanks a lot for this uplifting story.

    Happy New Year my friend!

      Dave, the warm and fuzzy sure contradicts reality. Hey, Happy New Year.

      Unfortunately, after New Years it’ll be Groundhog Day for the balance. And Valentine’s Day ought to be about the time Iran goes rogue on their nuke plans. (right on schedule) And the B-tard will be yapping about immigration, on cue. How about a good desk to crawl under?

    Bull, so adorable. If you want a true, loyal friend, get a dog is what i always say.
    Poor dog still misses his owner. That shows great love.

      Yea it was a tear jerker. Looks like they adopted him there. The pics were good, sitting right there at communion. So right, and he sure must have been attached. Poor guy. He does look like he’s grieving. How could they turn him away?


      • peppermintfarm says:

        Bull, it sure is a tear jerker. I feel so sorry for that dog mourning his owner/s. I don’t think they could possibly turn him away but let him come and mourn in church probably like his owners did many times.

        I now hear the gun fire going off outside. We hillbillies up on this ridge think it’s cool to fire guns off at every celebration. LOL!

    Oh wait, I must join in the fun and get the guns out. Some of them sound like cannons going off. I should get the shotgun out. That makes a lot of noise. LMAO! They are starting early too. Tradition in these here parts. Hee, hee!
