I am quite a sentimental person I think and I love a good weepy story. One such story is that of Greyfriar's Bobby, the little Skye terrier who guarded his master John Gray's grave for 14 years after his death in 1858. There is a great old film about it which I could not find any reference to on youtube and there also seems to be a modern one. I recently bought a children's book by Ruth Brown, telling the story, with beautiful illustrations.
We were up in Edinburgh this weekend visiting Andy's parents Jean and Ian, and we visited Greyfriar's Churchyard. I like it in there-it is very atmospheric and creepy with plenty of great tombs with skulls and cherubs.
