Woodland Cemetery (Ohio) is supposedly haunted by the spirits of Johnny Morehouse and his dog. Legend has it that Johnny fell into the Miami & Erie Canal. His faithful dog tried to pull him out, but it was too late - the little boy froze to death. After he was buried, Johnny's dog laid on his grave and wouldn't move. In time, the dog died of starvation and a broken heart. In 1861, a special stone was made with a statue of Johnny and his dog.
