Pack of Stray Dogs Stand Guard at Animal Lover’s Funeral
At the funeral for Margarita Suárez in Cuernavaca Morelos, there was a pack of stray dogs who came inside the funeral home to stand guard.
Suárez’s daughter Patricia Urrutia told ABC News that they were shocked, but delighted by the appearance of the canine celebrants.
Adding to the other-worldliness of the situation was the fact that these stray dogs were not even the same ones that her 71-year-old mother had helped during her lifetime. Suárez lived in Merida Yucatan, but her funeral service was in a town more than 830 miles away, her daughter said.
“My mom has always been good with all animals and people,” Urrutia said. “Always fed the dogs on her block and the 20 stray cats that lived there.”
“When I was in a moment of so much pain these dogs that came, they showed me that everything was going to be okay,” Urrutia told ABC.
The dogs were not the only animal friends to pay their respects to Suárez, as Urrutia also spotted a bird come through the window at 3:00 a.m., glance down at her mother’s coffin, and then fly off while singing.
“Because of them we were happy,” Urrutia added. “They made a sad situation an incredible one.”
