Come. Sit. Stay.
The strangest thing about Margarita Suarez’ funeral was not that a pack of dogs silently padded in to pay their last respects. Suarez was widely known in Merida for feeding and caring for strays.
What was strange was that Suarez’ wake and funeral was in Cuernevaca, a good 1000 Km away.
According to both funeral home personnel and Suarez’ family, dogs normally weren’t around the parlor, but came in as Suarez’ body was being prepared and quietly sat by or laid down. They stayed until 20 minutes before the end of the service, leaving as mysteriously as they had come.
