A loyal dog refused to leave a graveside for two weeks in a remarkable display of devotion after the death of his teenage owner. After Bhaskar Shri, 18, died in a car accident, his dog Tommy went without food and water for 15 baking days and freezing nights guarding his grave in Chennai, southern India. The young construction worker had adopted the dog five years ago and the two quickly became inseparable. Then, when Bhaskar was killed in a tragic road collision the dog refused to leave him.
I was at Walgreens buying my brother a birthday card. An elderly woman was also in the aisle. She said “can you believe they have wedding cards for two men and look even two women!”
But she then said “I’ve seen so many changes in my 80 years, it’s wonderful how things are moving forward.”
[internal tears of joy]
She then mentioned that she didn’t know any gay people but that everyone should be treated like they would want to be treated. I smiled and said “you know one now” and pointed at myself. She smiled, patted my shoulder and said “now I do”.
