It was a heartbreaking moment after a dog was spotted visiting his owner’s grave. Mehmet Ilhan, 79-years-old grandpa from Turkey passed away leaving behind his best friend, Cesur. Cesur was notably sad and depressed after finding out that his owner passed away.
When my father was in the hospital during his last days, Cesur stopped eating.”
When Mehmet’s family brought his body home, Cesur would not leave his side.
The day of the funeral, the dog even led the procession all the way to where Mehmet’s grave was located.
“Nobody could touch him until my father was taken to the grave and was buried,” Mehmet’s son, Ali, said.
Cesur was brought home by Ali, but for the last couple of days since the funeral, Cesur continued returning to his owner’s grave.
“The people who work in the cemetery say the first thing he does in the morning is visit the grave of my father.”
According to Ali, ‘Cesur has been a noble pet and he will continue taking care of him just like his previous owner did.’
“He will live with me from now on.”
