Bobby, an active Skye Terrier, adores his master Auld Jock, and when the old man dies, Bobby refuses to leave his grave. By day, he plays with the local orphans and eats at a nearby tavern, but, in spite of anything even the Lord Provost himself can do, every night for fourteen years Bobby returns faithfully to sleep by his master.

Bobby is a cute little silver haired Skye terrier. He “adopts” Auld Jock, an elderly shepherd, as his master. Eventually the shepherd loses his job and dies in poverty. The farmer tries to reclaim Bobby as a pet for his daughter but Bobby continues to guard Jock's grave in Greyfriars Kirkyard for fourteen more years. His devotion changed the lives of those around him and ultimately the conditions of the poor in Edinburgh. Bobby's incredible loyalty is eventually rewarded and he becomes revered by people all over the world.

What an inspiring story of love and loyalty. I absolutely loved learning about Bobby and his life in Scotland. This story is a true classic. If I had any complaints it would be that the verbiage is very Scottish. I felt like that added to the charming story, but be prepared if you don't care for that style of writing. I'm so happy I had an opportunity to meet Bobby.

Salah satu buku yang berhasil membuatku berderai air mata. Ceritanya hampir mirip dengan Hachiko, cuma Hachiko nunggu tuannya di stasiun sedangkan anjing ini menunggu di pemakaman tuannya.
