It’s not every day you’ll see a dog in church, but in the small town of San Donaci near Brindisi, Italy, it’s a regular occurrence. A 12 year-old German Shepherd named Tommy goes to Mass nearly every day and sits patiently by the altar. He goes there out of love, he is just waiting for his master. But the real story behind his reason will break your heart
The reason Tommy attends Mass at this church is because it’s where he last saw his owner.
Her funeral was held here.
Now, he diligently waits for his master to come back. He curls up by the altar to wait for Maria.
Tommy is there every day and waits patiently through all of the church services, keeping a silent watch and waiting for her.
The loyalty and love dogs possess is unlike anything else in the universe. Nothing breaks my heart more than to see a dog like this in mourning.
