Recently, 95-year-old Maria Isabel Benites Chamba passed away. All her friends and family came to pay their respects when she was laid to rest.
Bumer, Chamba’s beloved dog, was the perpetrator. Until the very end, he refused to leave her side.
Bumer stayed as close by as he could during Chamba’s wake, just like he had done so when she was still alive.
After the ceremony had finished, as tradition, a parade of attendees followed the coffin to the cemetery to complete the practice.
“You could see the loyalty and affection that existed between her and her dog.” “He was always by his owner’s side.”
“He circled the hearse before hopping aboard as if to say, ‘I want to go and say goodbye to my mom,’” the funeral home spokesperson said. “A tremendous example of loyalty.”
Bumer was sad, but his undying love for Chamba was on show for all to see.
Chamba may have passed, but Bumer’s faithfulness lives on. Hopefully, in time, his broken heart will begin to heal — but that’s a process he won’t have to face alone.
According to the funeral home, the little dog was last seen in the warm company of Chamba’s family, united in their remembrance of the person they loved so dearly.
Hopefully, in time, Bumer’s broken heart will be able to heal, and he may pass on his faithfulness.
But for now, he is among the love and warmth of Chamba’s family.
