I won't try to explain this. It neither needs nor wants explaining.
STRAY DOGS SHOW UP FOR ANIMAL LOVER'S FUNERAL
Margarita Suárez, 71, of Mérida (Yucatán, Mexico) took care of stray dogs and cats. Her funeral was in Cuernavaca, a long distance away. A pack of stray dogs showed up and would not leave until after she had been cremated.
how fascinating. perhaps this goes hand in hand with the whole 'cat sits on the edge of a dying person's bed' scenario? I recall my own cat sitting with my mum the day before she died, which the cat had never in the days leading up. but dang, those dogs are so polite! rocking up on time and then leaving only after she'd been cremated. and a cat acknowledging it's last minutes with someone is very kind too. N'awww <3
