Greyfriars Bobby, Edinburgh: 28 reviews and 66 photos

  Greyfriars' Bobby
by Packerman

This cute little Skye terrier who belonged to John Gray, a local policeman, kept his vigil for 14 years on his owners grave. Is this unbelievable or what??? What dedication, what loyalty. This dog is a wonderful example to all of us, especially to Christians. Our owner is not dead, but He lives. Let us remember this dog as we live day by day.

Directions: The end of Candelmaker Row, next to the Royal Museum of Scotland

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
