Dog guarded his master's grave for six years

Do you remember the akita dog "Hachiko," a loyal canine who greeted his master each day upon his arrival at the nearby Shibuya Station? His owner, a professor of agriculture at the University of Tokyo, suffered from a cerebral haemorrhage and died, never to return on the same exact spot where Hachiko was waiting. For the next nine years, Hachiko waited for him, still hopeful of his return. I saw the movie and it moved me big time.

A similar story happened in Argentina. Capitan, a German shepherd dog, kept watching his master's grave six years after he passed away. He ran away from home after his master died in 2006.

The family who adopted him thought he was ran over and died. A week later, the Guzman family saw Capitan sitting beside his master's grave. They said the dog rarely leaves the site. They also added that for them, Capitan's way of finding his master's grave was a mystery because they never brought him to the cemetery. 

The owner's daughter believes that Capitan will guard his master's grave until he dies.
