When people were coming by to attend the funeral services, they saw an interesting sight. The woman who had just died spent her life protecting animals and showering them with love – especially the ones that no one else would love. So, when this animal lover passed away, a pack of stray dogs came to attend her funeral and were caught keeping guard outside of it.
The animals that she loved in life wanted her to feel safe and protected as she passed into the afterlife. The woman’s name was Margarita Suarez, and her funeral was held in Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico. The pack of stray dogs had been shown love and kindness by the woman and were eager to give it back to her as they sat protecting her casket at the funeral.
When Suarez’s daughter saw the stray dogs guarding over her mother, she was surprised. She knew that her mother always showered animals with love, but did not know that they were there like that to support her. She found the presence of the canines absolutely delightful as ABC News reported.
What makes the situation even stranger though was that these particular dogs were not ones that Suarez had helped directly. It was as if the dogs could sense that Suarez was an animal lover and had done great things for canines across the country of Mexico, which she had.
Suarez, who was 71 when she died, had lived in Merida Yucatan. However, her funeral service was held at a distant location more than 830 miles from where she lived her days. That meant that the dogs that she cared for during her lifetime had no way of attending the funeral. It was as if they had sent these canines a telepathic message to show up at Suarez’s funeral in their stead.
“They stayed with my mother all day, and then at night they all stayed- but In the morning all the dogs vanished but one, but one hour before we brought my mom to be cremated the dogs came back and grouped around as if to say goodbye,” Urrutia told ABC News. “I swear by God that it was beautiful, marvelous.”
Urrutia was overwhelmed by the beauty of the animals and their presence in the funeral home. It gave the celebrants such peace to know that Suarez had these spirit animals following her.
“My mom has always been good with all animals and people,” Urrutia said. “Always fed the dogs on her block and the 20 stray cats that lived there.”
Because Urrutia knew that what she was seeing was special, she snapped pictures of the dogs and shared them on Facebook. The post went live on March 15 and quickly went viral. Soon it had gotten more than 192,000 likes and had been shared more than 50,000 times and counting.
The dogs helped Urrutia mourn the loss of her beloved mother.
“When I was in a moment of so much pain these dogs that came, they showed me that everything was going to be okay,” Urrutia told ABC.
