Loyal Dog Waits For Deceased Owner’s Return

LONE OAK, TX – Wayne’s Lawnmower Shop is about more than an honest repair at an honest price; it’s about lasting friendships Wayne’s son, Paul Giroux, runs the business. He learned the business and took over from his father in June, when Wayne Giroux was killed by a drunk driver.

As much as Paul Giroux misses his father, there is one other friend who does not seem ready to accept his passing: his dog Spot. In a scene reminiscent of Hachi, at the same time, every day, Spot hangs around this quiet country road waiting for Wayne to come home. It’s a bittersweet reminder of the power of dog devotion, and is likely to touch many with an appreciation for man’s true best friend.

  1. Oh, this is just so sad. Wish we knew a way to help Spot understand. Such unbelievable loyalty.

  2. I truelly beleive this – when Iwas in the hospital once my husband said my 2 dogs were so different moping around and wouldnt leave the couch by the front door, they are my babies & my life

  3. I wonder if the family had let the dog see the owner’s body, then the dog would know and not be constantly looking for him.

  4. Touching. Google Greyfriars Bobby, if you can. A very old tale of a skye terrier that lived on his owners grave in Edinburgh until the day he himself passed away. A beautiful statue now stands to honour Bobby’s loyalty in Edinburgh City.
