A for Amazing Animal Attitude!! The Scottish John Gray as Constable No 90, was obliged to have a watch dog.
He chose a Skye terrier, about 6 months old. What was the young puppy to be called? There was no doubt, he was called ‘Bobby’ after all he was a police dog!
Bobby now became part of John Gray’s life. In 1858 John Gray died.A few days after the funeral, just after the one o'clock gun had sounded, which was the time John Gray was used to have his meal at the Traill's restaurant, the customers there were surprised to see Bobby enter it. They recognized him and felt sorry for him. They gave him a bone. He accepted it and ran away to the churchyard to his master's grave. From then on this was repeated daily.He refused to leave his master's grave which he guarded for fourteen years, till his own death in 1872.
There are no statues of cats, but there are many remarkable stories about cats. Do you know the delightful Cornish story of The Mousehole Cat? And we had a cat who once walked with us to the end of the street and waited 5 hours for us to return. However we came home by another road. When we missed him, we went looking for him and asked the neighbours if they had seen him, then we remembered that he walked with us. We went to the place where we saw him last and there he was! He was sooo happy to see us. So I wouldn't say that cats are not loyal. I am a real catlover!!
