    Stark County: Dog stayed with her master until the end

    Stark County: Dog stayed with her master until the end


    STARK COUNTY -- A golden retriever named "Lady" was a good and loyal dog until the end.

    Police and an investigator with the Stark County Coroner's Office believe that Lady stayed by her owner's side in a field just outside of Hartville for almost a week.

    Parley Nichols, 81, was found dead there Wednesday night, about a mile from his home.

    Nichols had dementia and was reported missing on April 8.

    Even though family members passed out fliers and searched for Nichols, his body was only discovered after Lady barked at a passerby.

    "This dog would not leave his side," said Stark County Coroner's Investigator Harry Campbell. "No question, she stayed out there on her own volition.

    "(Lady) saw another human and started barking and wailing," said Campbell.
    The preliminary findings of an autopsy lead the Stark County Coroner to believe that Nichols suffered a natural death due to heart and lung disease.

    Campbell said the dog likely drank water from a nearby drainage ditch. But there were no signs of food near Nichols.

    Campbell also said that a local newspaper dated April 7 was found with Nichols.
    Family members are now caring for Lady.

    Mary Nichols believes that Lady was with her relative the whole time he was missing.

    When asked if her family takes comfort in knowing that Parley Nichols was not alone when he died, Mary Nichols responded, "Yes."

    The dogs I've had in my life have certainly been more loyal than the women.

    Man's best friend indeed, lovely story.

    Lock your dog in the car boot for for 3 days and when you let him out, he'll always be pleased to see you.
    Lock your wife in the car boot for 3 days however, when your let her out, she'll want your blood.

    Speaks volumes.

    There is a story of a dog in n.ireland that was taken to the graveyard where it's owner got buried. The following day the dog found it's way back to the graveyard and was found sitting by it's owner's grave. The guy who looked after the grave site got rid of the dog but it came back,, and came back every day for years until it died. Another similar story also comes from scotland. Loyalty indeed.
    There is a statue of one of these dogs somewhere but i know not where it is.

    Mans best friend by miles.
    Wish I could be an owner here in Thailand, but with me and the missus both working fulltime it's impossible.
    If only a dog could iron, then i wouldn't need the missus!

    Who can figure them. The workings of a woman's mind will always be a mystery.

    Then I won't even talk about coming home at 0200 in the morning smelling like another woman or another dog.

    I think the Scots dog was greyfriars bobby, probably a statue of him, they made a film about him. Can't beat a dog, well you can, but you'd get more jail for that in the UK than beating the mrs.

    That's the first thing I've read here about the British justice system that made sense to me.

    The male one in my avatar would have done, the female probably would for a few minutes now if it was my girlfriend the female rottie would stay with her till she died of starvation. The other dogs, not a chance in hell.

    There is a bronze statue of a dog, Hachiko, at Shabuya Station in Tokyo. It is in memory of a dog that accompanied his master to the station every day. The master died of a heart attack one day and never returned to the station. The dog came to the station each day for nine years, on time for the arrival of the train his owner would have been on.
