“My sister died 4 years ago and Benito, her dog, accompanied her throughout the last two years of her life and still accompanies her today” wrote Belén on Twitter. The little dog gets a spring in his step when he’s on the way to his owner’s tomb. He knows exactly where he’s going.
A dog’s love is unconditional and for life. With every day that goes by they give more and more reasons to love them forever, as they love us. This is the story of Benito, a sweet poodle who still visits his owner’s grave four years after she died.
For Benito it’s as if his human mom had never left. He refuses to accept it, which is why he always visits Joha’s tomb and lies on top of it, not moving until it’s time to leave.
This sweet story has gone viral on social media after Belén, the late Joha’s sister, uploaded a video to her Twitter account. Many people have praised Benito for his loyalty.
“Take a look, this is unconditional love. Joha is my sister, she died 4 years ago and this is Benito her dog; He accompanied her throughout the last 2 years of her life and still accompanies her today.” Belén wrote on her Twitter post.
Vean este amor tan incondicional.

“Dogs are the most amazing creatures that exist because they are the only beings that truly love unconditionally and without limits.” Belén added.
In the video you can see how happy Benito is whenever it’s time to visit Joha. Even before he arrives at his human mom’s resting place, he already walks with a spring in his step, bursting with happiness.
Joha raised Benito and cared for him from when he was just a puppy, which is why he’ll always remember her no matter what happens. This can be seen every time he goes to visit her grave. Once there, he demands to be lifted onto the coffin and then he lies down without moving. He knows that she’s there and he seems to be trying to hug her.
