Dog Still Attending Mass Each Morning After Owner Passed Away

I recently read a story that solidified the fact that dogs truly are man’s best friend. A dog whose owner passed away not too long ago, has still been attending Mass every day. The dog’s owner Maria Margherita Lochi used to bring the dog, Tommy, to Mass every day with her. Her funeral was also held in the same church in San Donaci, Italy. It seems that the dog has gotten used to the routine of attending Mass, and has been returning each morning. The local community has no problem with this because Tommy is well behaved, and also loved by the community. Currently Tommy is being cared for by the community, but he will have a new owner sometime soon. This story warmed my heart and I wanted to share it with all of you.

  1. This reminds me of the story of Greyfriar’s Bobby. Have you read that book (or seen the Disney film)?

    • I haven’t but I need to check it out! I just thought this story great, so I’m sure the book and Disney film are as well.
