Mehmet Ilhan and his dog Cesur were inseparable. They were the best of friends, and when he came down with an illness that left him paralyzed, Cesur was by his side every single day.
When Mehmet was admitted to the hospital, Cesur, took it very hard.
“Because of my father’s paralysis, they had a different kind of connection,” Mehmet’s son, Ali, said. “When my father was in the hospital during his last days, Cesur stopped eating.”
Unfortunately, Mehmet passed away, and Cesur was left in the loving and capable hands of his son.
Mehmet’s son noticed the dog took long daily walks by himself. He became curious as to where the dog was going. He followed him and when he saw where Cesur was going, he could not hold back the tears. He then realized just how deep the emotional connection was between the dog and his father.
The day of his father’s funeral, Cesur led the way as they took Mehmet’s casket to his final resting place.
Ali followed him, and to his surprise, the dog led him to his father’s grave. Cesur sits on his father’s grave for hours according to the groundskeeper at the cemetery.
Ali was so emotional that he now takes daily walks with the dog to visit his father’s grave too.
“Cesur has always been a noble animal,” he said. “He will live with me from now on.”
