Lao Pan's dog

When 68-year-old Lao Pan died in China in November 2011, the only surviving member of his family was a small yellow dog. The heartbroken pup took up residence at Pan’s graveside and refused to leave even after going seven days without food. However, villagers took notice of the loyal canine and began bringing food and water to the gravesite — they even plan to build a kennel there for the dog.
