Dog Stands Guard Over Owner's Grave

I have a love/hate relationship with stories like this because they are just heartbreaking to me:

A dog in central Argentina named Capitan has stood guard over his master's grave since 2006, when the man died. Miguel Guzman bought the dog for his son in 2005, then passed away the following year. The family thought the dog had been run over or had run away, so they were floored when they found Capitan at Guzman's graveside the following Sunday.

They had never taken Capitan to visit the grave or to the graveyard, so no one knows how he found the grave. The cemetery director says the dog showed up one day and began running around the graveyard until it found Guzman's grave. They have been feeding and caring for the dog since then.
