Dewey’s Epitaph

A tombstone in the Pine Ridge Pet Cemetery in Dedham, Massachusetts, pays tribute to a cat that lived over 100 years ago. The first line is in quotes, which points out that  it was something Dewey’s owner probably heard over and over as he was mourning, and most likely again when he commissioned a tombstone for his beloved cat. -via reddit

An Ancient Greek epigram:

You, walking by on the path, if perhaps you notice this memorial
do not laugh, please, because it is a dog's tomb,
I was mourned - the hands of my master covered me with dust
and he wrote these words on my gravestone.
