Belinha, a lovable canine companion, had been by Telma Maria’s side for four years. However, their companionship was recently disrupted. Nonetheless, Belinha’s devotion to her adoring owner persists.
Maria from Brazil passed away following a prolonged battle with cancer. Her loyal companion, Belinha, was by her side throughout her challenging journey, providing comfort and support to Maria. Despite Maria’s declining health, the presence of her beloved dog helped to uplift her spirits. Dionsio Neto, Maria’s son, expressed his gratitude online, mentioning that his mother referred to Belinha as her nurse and most devoted friend.
Belinha was an integral part of Maria’s life, so it was no surprise that she attended her funeral. She sat solemnly with other family members, fully aware of the gravity of the somber occasion. Nevertheless, what happened next left a deep impact on Maria’s son.
Belinha surprised everyone by staying by Maria’s side during the whole service, just as she used to do when Maria was still alive. Neto thought of capturing these emotional moments and wrote, “Animals demonstrate love that knows no bounds.”
After the wedding, Belinha kept weeping and crying for Maria who was no longer there. To soothe her, Neto and some family members decided to take Belinha to Maria’s resting place. This visit seemed to bring some comfort to the dog, who had been grieving. At the cemetery, Belinha ran towards Maria’s grave as if she knew exactly where it was, even though she had never been there before. Neto was touched by the unbroken bond between his mother and her dog. In an interview with Estadão, he expressed his emotions at this reunion.
My late mother has taught me a valuable lesson that love is not confined to humans alone. Through her bond with Belinha, my mother has shown the world how strong animal love can be. Although Belinha is currently heartbroken, she will eventually find solace in knowing that Maria is still with her in spirit. Furthermore, Belinha will never have to experience the grieving process alone as she now has a permanent home with Neto.
