Grieving dog waits for 80 days at the spot where owner died in a car accident
Even though we don’t know how the owner passed away, the stirring nature of the dog’s reaction day in and day out tell its own story.
The only information available regarding the owner is that she died on August 21. This scene plays off in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia and it shows her dog returning to the same spot every single day since August 21.
A taxi driver, Guo Xinhua said:
“It’s been nearly three months now. The dog is always there, rain or shine. It’s so touching.”

The reason for the dog’s action may elude us, but the emotion behind it does not.
All that was found was Kerry’s hat and shoes and Ataahua on the river bank. Rescue teams searched a section of the river but Kerry was not found, and ever since that day Ataahua would escape home and run to the riverbank every chance she gets.

One night after Ataahua ran off, Kerry’s daughter, Lorraine Cook said:
“One of the cops and my brother found her down by the river again in the same place, just sitting there. It was like she was waiting for him to come back. She keeps trying to run down there - it’s sad to watch her. She looks sad.”
The loyalty and protectiveness the dog Tony had towards his owner, 28-year-old Jesús Heuche made his rescue and treatment somewhat difficult after Jesús fell 7 feet to the ground.
When first responders arrived Tony would not let anyone near his owner, but eventually, they could do what needed to be done, even when they loaded Jesús into the ambulance Tony didn’t leave his side.
Jesús thankfully only suffered a mild skull trauma, and the Argentinean Def Civil B. Blanca posted pictures on their Facebook page and wrote:
“At 06:07 p.m, a person who was pruning a tree in Balboa Street 2473 fell from it from a height of about 2 meters. The 28-year-old worker suffered a slight head trauma, so he was transported by ambulance personnel with the SIEMPRE service. The entire time, the injured [man] was accompanied by his pet TONY. Police and Civil Defense personnel were present.”
