    Default Man's Best Friend Guards Owner's Body

    A sad but touching story.

    MOORE, Oklahoma -

    A photo of a mud-splattered pup taken by the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office takes on new significance after its owner's body is recovered.

    "Man's best friend to the end," the Sheriff's Office posted on its Facebook page Tuesday.

    Deputies initially released a photo Monday of the small black dog sitting in debris following the devastating EF-5 tornado with the comment "scared, this little pup survived."

    On Tuesday they learned the dog was guarding his deceased owner whose body was recovered.

    "The dog was taken to a shelter and the deputy who found the pup, if possible, plans on adopting the dog," the OCSO tweeted on Tuesday. "Man's best friend to the end."

    Not the first time this has happened, but it sure brings a tear to the eye.

    They never complain when you come home, sully when you leave, never leave your side, dead or alive.
    Truly mans/womens best friend.

    Its a punishment, because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    What if this whole crusade's a charade?
    And behind it all there's a price to be paid
    For the blood which we dine
    Justified in the name of the holy and the divine…

    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    The “Eulogy” to Old Drum

    “Gentlemen of the Jury, the best friend a man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith.
    The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it the most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads.

    The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.

    Gentleman of the Jury, a man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and the sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert he remains.

    When riches take wings and reputation fall to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies, and when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.”

    Sure, it brings memory back from a true events inspired film Hachiko. From there the quote by the actress "he's still waiting".... these things for sure stirs the soul and makes the eyes rain. Again something happens like this then and sure we are again reminded that the friend in need is a friend indeed. Man's true best friend.

    I would be willing to bet that any of the last three dogs we have owned would have done nothing less. Dogs are probably the most loyal creatures out there.

    It says at the end of the story that the LEO who rescued the dog is planning on adopting it
