Ciccio, an Italian German Shepherd, used to attend mass with his owner, but now that she’s passed away he continues to go.
Prior to her death in November, Maria Margherita Lochi would go to church every day with her 7-year-old German Shepherd, the Daily Mail reported. According to the Telegraph, the dog, Ciccio, still turns up to the Santa Maria Assunta church in the village of San Donaci in Puglia.
The place of worship held Lochi’s funeral, during which Ciccio followed the coffin as it was carried inside. Now, he’s a daily visitor.
