Greyfriars Bobby

For all of you animal lovers out there, you'll tear up over this story.

A famous Skye Terrier, this little dog now know as Greyfriars Bobby, was very devoted to his master John Gray. For fourteen years the dead man's faithful dog kept constant watch and guard over the grave until his own death fourteen years later.

It's reported that at the 1 o'clock gun, Bobby is seen leaving the grave for his midday meal. Dammit I missed it-too busy taking photos at another graveyard down the Royal Mile. Doh!
