Greyfriars Bobby

Bobby was a Skye Terrier dog belonging to one John Gray in 19th century Edinburgh, Scotland. John Gray was buried in Greyfriars Kirkyard, a cemetery surrounding a church called Greyfriars Kirk in the Old Town of Edinburgh. Bobby, who survived John by more than a decade, is said to have spent the rest of his life sitting on his master's grave. Bobby himself was later also buried in Greyfriars Kirkyard.

His intense loyalty made Bobby popular with dog lovers, who spread and probably embellished the story. Several books and films on the subject have appeared over the years, including the film Greyfriars Bobby: The True Story of a Dog.
