Loyal dog ran away from home to find his dead master's grave - and has stayed by its side for six years

 

A faithful dog has refused to leave the side of his dead master's grave for six years, it was reported today.

German shepherd Capitan ran away from home after the death of Argentinian Miguel Guzman in 2006.

A week later Mr Guzman's family went to pay their respects and found the heartbroken pet sitting by his owner's grave, wailing.

Since then the grieving dog has rarely left the spot at the cemetery in the town of Villa Carlos Paz, central Argentina.

Mr Guzman bought Capitan as a present for his 13-year-old son Damian in 2005.

He died suddenly in March the next year, but by the time his family had returned home from the funeral Capitan was gone.

 
 

Mr Guzman's widow Veronica told Argentina's Cordoba newspaper: 'We searched for him but he had vanished. We thought he must have got run over and died.

'The following Sunday we went to the cemetery and Damian recognised his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing, as if he were crying.'

She added: 'We had never taken him to the cemetery so it is a mystery how he managed to find the place.

'We went back the next Sunday, and he was there again. This time, he followed us home and spent a bit of time with us, but then went back to the cemetery before it started getting dark.

'I don't think he wanted to leave Miguel on his own at night.'

 
Protector: Although it has been six years since Mr Guzman's death Capitan proves a faithful companion and guards his grave day and night

The cemetery's director Hector Baccega remembers the day he first saw the dog.

He said: 'He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master.

'During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at six o'clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave stays there all night.'

Mr Baccega said staff at the cemetery are now feeding and taking care of Capitan.

Mr Guzman's son Damian said: 'I've tried to bring Capitan home several times, but he always comes straight back to the cemetery. I think he's going to be there until he dies too. He's looking after my dad.'

The story is similar to that of Hachiko, an Akita who is said to have waited at a Tokyo train station for its master to return each day for nine years from May 1925, following owner Hidesaburo Ueno's death at work.

But she still stood out - not just because of her exquisitely embroidered white Alexander McQueen dress, which featured the Malaysian flower, hibiscus, in gold detail - but because she towered over her hosts in four inch satin heels.

The couple were guests of His Majesty The Agong, Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdul, Halim Mu'adzam Shah of Kedah, and his wife Her Majesty The Queen, Raja Persaisuri Agong, Tuanku Haminah binti Hamidun.

 

 
 

The king's title literally translates as He Who Is Made Lord, Paramount Ruler or His Conqueror Majesty The Supreme Lord of the Federation.

The couple were first invited to sign a visitor's book before walking into heavily brocaded Seri Mahkota Hall or audience room.

As they waited for their hosts to arrive William and Kate chatted with the Prime Minister and his wife.

Kate spoke admiringly of the opulent palace, saying:'It is beautiful, those chandeliers are wonderful. It's amazing.'

Asked about her speech today the Duchess said:'I was so nervous and I am very glad that it over with.

'There was an amazing atmosphere.'

She also referred to a stunning display of fruit offered to them earlier in the day.

'We certainly didn't expect that, it was a real shock to us!' She laughed.

Admiring the ladies' outfits, William joked: 'I've got my heels on tonight.'

He then told the minister: 'I'm tired. It's the jet lag that is hardest.

'We go on from here to the Solomon Islands and then Tuvalu, have you ever been there? Me neither. Tuvalu is one of the smallest and most remote places on earth.

'We hope to do some fishing and snorkelling. - am very interested in the coral and whale sharks. I have dived with them before and although they are huge, they are very docile creatures - not like jaws!'

When the King and Queen arrived, Kate elegantly offered each of them a low curtsey.

William proceeded to chat with the King while Kate stooped as she exchanged pleasantries with his wife.

After a few minutes polite chat they moved on to another room where they posed for a group photograph and the Duke and Duchess received gifts.

For William there was a gold encrusted Malay warrior's sword known as a kris.

For Kate there was a pair of black lace peep toe shoes by the Malaysian equivalent of Jimmy Choo called Lewre with a glittering diamante Wilbur & Gussie 'Charlie' clutch bag and a Batik dress.

There was also a collage of photographs of the elderly King and Queen.

The 400 other guests walked into the Deuan Santapan Negara or Royal Banqueting Hall ahead of them, the circular tables laid our around a dais upon which a table for the royal party was laid out.

The rectangular table was covered with garlands of English flowers - roses, chrysanthemums and daisies.

The meal was described as a 'fushion' of English and Asian cuisine. No alcohol was served although guests were offered sweet fruit juices and water.

The royal party's arrival was heralded by a procession of men and women in traditional Malay costumes and music.

And as they took their seats dancers bearing flowers and parasols began to move gracefully in front of the stage.

The Duke and Duchess will spend the next two days in Kuala Lumpur before moving onto Borneo for the next stage of their Diamond Jubilee tour.

The couple were the guests of His Majesty The Agong, Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah of Kedah, and his wife Her Majesty The Queen, Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tuanku Haminah binti Hamidun.

The king's title literally translates as He Who Is Made Lord, Paramount Ruler or His Conqueror Majesty The Supreme Lord of the Federation.

His wife is known as the Queen Lady Consort.

Malaysia has had a constitutional monarchy since it gained independence in 1957 - and it is one of just a handful in the world which is elected.

In Malaysia's constitutional monarchy, the role of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is largely ceremonial, although he does appoint the Prime Minister from among elected members of Parliament,

The current Agong, aged 83, has ruled since December 2011 after he was elected by the Conference of Rulers, the second time he has taken the throne.

He is the first ruler to hold the position twice, as well as the oldest elected to the office.

His Istana Negara palace at Jalan Duta only finished last year.

Earlier in the day, the Royal couple visited a hospice in Kuala Lumpur where the Duchess gave her first speech on foreign soil - about the importance of palliative care.
