Every Day Little Dog Walks Miles Alone To Visit His Best Friend’s Grave

This small puppy named Fulmine lived with Sara Sechi’s father, Leonardo, for seven long and joyful years. The two closest friends lived in the Italian countryside, enjoying simple pleasure in each other’s company.

Sechi told The Dodo, “They were really loving.” “They were usually snuggling,” says the narrator.

Fulmine and Leonardo’s time together unfortunately came to an end recently. Their love, though, endures.

Leonardo died away last month following a lengthy fight with sickness. Leonardo’s family looked after Fulmine while he was in the hospital, and they witnessed how much the small dog missed him.

“Whenever a car came close, Fulmine would dash to the gate, thinking it was my father,” Sechi explained.


The dog continued to search for Leonardo even after he was laid to rest.

Sechi and her son went to the cemetery the day after Leonardo’s burial to leave additional flowers on his grave. When they arrived, they were shocked to see that someone else had also come to pay them a visit.


Fulmine had somehow travelled nearly two kilometers from the countryside on his own to the location where Leonardo had been put to rest.

He appeared to realize that Leonardo, whom he hadn’t seen in weeks, had arrived.

“I was surprised to see him there,” Sechi stated. “He didn’t show up for the funeral.” I’m not sure how he knew where he needed to go.”


Fulmine, on the other hand, was finally reunited with Leonardo, if only in spirit.

Fulmine’s visit would not be the last. Neighbors reported seeing the tiny dog going to and from the graveyard to see the companion he’d lost in the weeks that followed.

Sechi said, “We think he goes there every day.”


But it’s still a mystery how Fulmine knew where to look for Leonardo.

“I’d like to believe he’s motivated by his affection for my father.” “It’s one of those bizarre situations without a genuine explanation,” Sechi remarked, “or that my father led him there.”


Fulmine’s heart still hurts, but it’s a sensation he’ll never have to experience again.


Sechi has recently brought Fulmine in to live with her, allowing the two of them to grieve together while also looking forward to making wonderful new experiences as a family.

“Thinking about how much my father loved Fulmine and how much Fulmine loves him makes me emotional,” Sechi added. “It’s heartbreaking to see him hurting, but we’ll get through this together.”
