After His Owner Died, Dog Walked the Same Route That He Used to Walk Every Morning

This is a story of loyalty and friendship that takes place in the streets of Caçapava do Sul, Brazil. Every morning, a Japanese Akita named Thor walks the street alone along the same route that he has taken with his owner on his walk for over a decade.

When his owner Claudio Cantarelli died in 2015, Thor was so heartbroken that he stopped eating and would lie in the courtyard without moving for days. But, thanks to a loving neighbor who took him in, Thor is now doing better and has started walking the same route again.

"He [Claudio] walked every day and had his lunch. He was an artist and was everyone's friend - and now, Thor makes the same walk. I notice that the dog always stops at the same places. It's impressive," hairdresser Airton Oliveira said to RBS TV [in Portuguese].

Thor even made the same stop at the lottery office, where Claudio went almost every day. There, he waited for a while as if hoping for his owner to come out from the establishment to continue on their journey together.
