Humans aren’t the only ones who grieve when their loved ones pass away. Jeremy May, president of Elements Cremation, recently met a dog named Sadie who demonstrated that truth in the most remarkable way.

After 13 years of faithful companionship, Sadie’s best friend died unexpectedly of a heart attack. She was there by his side through the ordeal, like she always had been.

“After the paramedics came and couldn’t revive him, Sadie laid beside him and repeatedly put her head on and under his hand,” Mr. May said.

Here’s more from The Dodo:

The man’s wife and family were devastated, and so too was Sadie. Over the 10 days that followed leading up to the funeral, it became obvious that the heartbroken dog wasn’t able to cope.

“During that time Sadie would not eat, would not sleep by herself and spent the days waiting by the window and door waiting for his return,” May said.

Then that all changed.
