    A dog takes its loyalty to the grave in Brazil. A dog, "Leao", sits for a second consecutive day, next to the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in the week's catastrophic landslides in Brazil, at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero, on Jan. 15. Brazilians braced for more rain Saturday, fearing further landslides after walls of muddy water tore through towns and claimed some 550 lives in the country's worst flood disaster on record.

    Leao Dog - sits by his owners grave This photo of a Brazilian dog rose up in fame in 2011 after the awful landslides in Rio De Janeiro. The dog, named Leao, sat by his owners grave for days and refused to leave. This photo was taken on the second consecutive day he lay by his owners side and shows the world that the loyalty of a pet can go beyond the grave. Very moving.
