The owner of Masha the dog died in the ward of Novosibirsk District Hospital in Siberia two years ago but the poor pooch refuses to let go. She still waits for her owner in the hospital everyday.
“She’s waiting for him, she’s not going anywhere,” said nurse Anna Vorontsova.
‘You see her eyes, how sad they are – it’s not the usual shiny eyes for when a dog is happy. You can see this in animals in the same way as with people,’ Dr. Vladimir Bespalov told the Siberian Times.
Many locals have tried to take Masha into their homes but she would just run back to the hospital. Good thing the staff at the hospital have grown accustomed to the presence of the broken hearted Masha so they provide her plenty of food, a warm bed to sleep in and let her out from time to time so she could exercise.
The amount of love that dogs have for their owners, and vice versa, is just incredible. Stories like this one are the kind that pull hard on your heartstrings.
