Capitan, a German Shepherd, disappeared from his home in a small town in Argentina following the death of his owner, Miguel Guzman, in March of 2006. The Guzman family thought the mutt had run away for good, but a week later, the family found Capitan sitting by Miguel's grave.
"The following Sunday we went to the cemetery, and Damian recognized his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing as if he were crying," said widow Veronica Guzman.
Adding to the unusual circumstances, Veronica says the family never brought Capitan to the cemetery before he was discovered there.
"It is a mystery how he managed to find the place," she said.
