In Edinburgh, Scotland, a life-size bronze statue of a plucky terrier sits on a pedestal opposite Greyfriar's Kirkyard. The statue honors Greyfriar's Bobby, the celebrated Skye Terrier buried in this graveyard with his master, John Gray, who died in 1858. For 14 years, this devoted dog stayed beside his friend's final resting place, leaving only for his midday meals. Bobby may have died in 1872, but his heart-touching story of love after death lives on.
