Stray dogs turn up at the funeral of woman who fed them

Stray dogs turn up at the funeral of woman who fed them

A number of stray dogs have turned up at a funeral to pay their respects to a Mexican woman who regularly fed them.

Margarita Suarez from Merida, Mexico regularly fed around 20 dogs and cats that would show up at her home.

Her daughter, Patricia Urrutia, said the dogs turned up at the funeral home where her mother’s body was being kept. On the day of the funeral, the canines formed a procession behind the hearse and returned to the funeral home. They only left when the body was being prepared for cremation.

“In pain, they jumped for joy, it was wonderful,” Ms Urrutia said.
