A dog waited for his best friend for days hoping to meet him again without knowing he would never return. The poor man was left heartbroken because the life of his owner was extinguished forever.
The loyal dog remained for two weeks in front of the entrance to a college waiting for his friend to return, just as he did every day to share and even eat together.
The animal called Buboy lived on the street, but, although he did not have a home, the teacher took care of him. For four years he fed him and looked after his well-being, they created a very special bond.
Every day they met at the university, the dog waited for Professor Carmelito Marcelo outside the faculty office at Mabalacat City College in Pampanga, Philippines. But one day, the professor didn’t show up to the appointment he usually had with his beloved pet.
Buboy waited in the same place for the professor, but unfortunately he died due to a stroke.
The poor dog was looking for his best friend at the entrance to the educational center, he scratched the door, he didn’t understand why he didn’t see the person who fed him and offered him all the love he needed.
For all the students at the educational center, it was heartbreaking to find the dog wandering around the places where the teacher would be.
The dog followed him everywhere, they were inseparable , they even had lunch together.
According to a professor Kristina Demafelix, the professor had created such a special bond with the dog that even on those days when he did not have any scheduled classes he came to the university to visit him.
She reported that the dog , Buboy, went to Professor Marcelo’s office when he was urgently admitted to the hospital. It was as if he sensed that something was happening to him.
And he was not wrong, Professor Marcelo was indeed diagnosed with a stroke and unfortunately he did not manage to survive the consequences it caused on his body.
The teacher was so moved by the dog’s behavior that she decided to help him understand the truth. Despite the pain, it was necessary for him to be able to accept the reality that he would never see his faithful friend.
“I couldn’t express all the pain because I didn’t know what happened. Suddenly the teacher did not come to school, but the dog waited outside the faculty , where he is always waiting for him, always waiting for his arrival.”
Professor Kristina decided to take the dog to Marcelo’s wake, this way she would help the animal understand Buboy’s departure and begin the process of grieving for the loss he had suffered. She trusted that he would understand that she would never see him again and would say a final goodbye.
When the dog arrived at the funeral, his reaction moved not only the teacher but everyone present.
The dog seemed to understand everything, saw his faithful friend in the coffin and said goodbye to him.
The faculty members wanted to show solidarity with Buboy and unite their efforts to care for him together, although they know that none of them will be able to replace the love that the deceased professor offered him.
“The whole school is worried about Buboy and the faculty has become his home,” said the teacher .
Luckily, the dog will be able to count on the support of his best friend’s colleagues, who will never leave him alone. They will make sure he is well fed, healthy and above all, happy.
They will offer him tokens of love in the name of their deceased companion and thus pay tribute to him by doing what he would have liked, he would never leave alone the dog that he shared with him for years.
