Leao continues to sit at the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in last week’s catastrophic landslides in Brazil. She has remained at the graveside for two days straight with no sign that she will give up her vigil.
Leao proves that dogs are loyal to a fault.
There are so many dead from the mudslides in Brazil that they have resorted to burying people in an assembly line fashion. I believe there were 655 dead just in Leao’s town alone.
