Onlookers Discover A Dog, Assume It’s Laying Next To Its Owners Grave - They Realize What’s Really Happening

A viral photo making rounds on the internet is breaking many people's hearts. What's going on in the photo is not actually what a lot of people think it is. It actually had a happy ending.

The photo shows a dog who has dug a hole on a grave and is huddling in it. A lot of stories about the photo say that it's a loyal pup who is heartbroken at the loss of his beloved owner, and that the dog won't leave the gravesite. Thankfully, this is not the case.

The grave is an old grave, and most likely the dog never knew its occupant. The dog didn't even dig the hole - some dirt simply collapsed in, leaving the little-sheltered area for the dog to hole up in.

The dog is a stray, and the reason she was making her home in the small hole is that she gave birth to a litter of puppies.

Inside the hole, the homeless mother nursed and protected her babies. When humans noticed her, she became frightened. She refused to leave the hole because she was trying to keep her babies safe from strangers inside.

Thankfully, mother and puppies have been removed. It took a lot of kibble and coaxing, but animal rescuers finally gained the frightened dog's trust and she came forward. They all appear to be in good health and are now in much more comfortable accommodations.
