For your steadfast love is as high as the heavens;your faithfulness extends to the clouds

From WKYC:

A golden retriever named "Lady" was a good and loyal dog until the end. Lady stayed by her owner, Parley Nichols' side in a field just outside of Hartville, almost a mile from their home, for almost a week after he died His body was found on Wednesday night.

Even though family members passed out fliers and searched for Nichols, his body was only discovered after Lady barked at a passerby. Stark County Coroner's Investigator, Harry Campbell, said the dog likely drank water from a nearby drainage ditch. But there were no signs of food near Nichols.

The preliminary findings of an autopsy lead the Stark County Coroner to believe that Nichols suffered a natural death due to heart and lung disease.

Family members are now caring for Lady.

Lady is our...

  1. In Hebrew, this is called “chesed,” steadfast love. All best wishes for Lady. What an example and inspiration!

  2. If the “Love of Dog” does NOT = “Love of God”, it’s as close as *I* ever hope to see! [Nevermind the coin for Charon: bury me w/ *Snausages* for the Pearly Gates! :-D]

  3. Time and time again, I have seen dogs (and cats) stay by the body of their deceased person, guarding it until it has been taken away. They know. They really do.

    wv: perphold — NOT what this dear dog did at all!
