    Such a great monument to a little dog. I was able to see this when I visited and I also bought a picture book about Bobby. I love this story!

      it was a well-deserved tribute. i came to know about little booby only after we arrived at the hotel in edinburgh. in our room was a book about him. great story.

    Ok…had to look it up..
    Greyfriars Bobby-
    Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier which became known in 19th-century Edinburgh for supposedly spending 14 years guarding the grave of its owner until he died himself on 14 January 1872. Wikipedia

    Kinda sad but interesting!

    Thanks for making me learn something new.
