In San Donaci, Italy, a dog still attends Santa Maria Assunta church even after his beloved owner’s funeral. He has been attending mass for currently two months now. Tommy, a 7 year-old German Shepard was very used to attending mass with his owner, Maria Margherita Lochi and was allowed to sit at her feet. When Lochi passed away, Tommy attended the funeral just like every mourning friend and family member and escorted the coffin into the church. He didn’t leave her side one bit. Tommy, who was adopted by Lochi as a stray doesn’t miss one day at church. As soon as the bell rings to mark the beginning of the church service, he shows up to sit in his special seat. Everyone adores Tommy. They feed him and still allow him to join mass since he is a very quiet and well behaved dog. Dogs are very loyal animals. This is not the first time something like this has happened. In 2011 a Labrador retriever laid down next to his owner’s casket, a fallen Navy Seal, at his funeral in Rockford, Iowa. He refused to leave his owner’s side. A 60 year-old man once fell through thin ice and his dog sat and watching anxiously for thirty minutes as the fire department rescued his beloved owner. Dogs are known to e very loyal. They have feelings and if they are close to someone they will be loyal their whole life and even after their owner’s life ends.

Aressa Silva's curator insight, March 14, 2014 1:52 PM

At this day and age Veterinaries don’t have the same responsibilities that they did a few years ago. A couple of years ago they were required to know how to clone animals. Now, it’s more common for them to specialize in these areas or be considered a politician or an animal doctor. Some work for the government controlling livestock and the others spend their days taking care of kitty cats and the doggies of neighborhoods. Graham Easton leads us down the paths of a couple of vets studying at the University of Liverpool to allow us to experience what they do. The only way we get exposed to the vets that work for the government is through television now that the whole meat crisis has arisen. The government doesn’t contract vets like this to ensure that the meat of their cows and sheep are healthy enough to eat, they employ them to save their industries. The other half of the vets that don’t work for the government, choose to live their lives spaying cats and treating the fleas on dogs. Now that animals are becoming more and more important in people’s lives it’s important to have someone to care for the animals to ensure that they live a long and healthy life with their owners. Should the government pay for the education of only the vets intending to work for the government or all of the vets no matter where they plan to work afterwards? Vet schools are struggling to pay for clinical training because they don’t receive enough aid from the government while other doctor’s receive so much money. Six UK schools have been trying to reconcile the very different branches of Veterinaries.
