See, things haven't been the same since his owner, who was known in local dialect as "Maria tu lu campu" -- "Maria of the fields" -- died. Maria lived alone with Tommy and 3 other rescue dogs who accompanied her on all outings.

Maria's funeral took place in this church. Tommy has returned daily, sitting quietly throughout masses, baptisms and funerals, according to local priest Donato Panna, who now wouldn't do without him.

I bet Maria is smiling down from heaven when she sees what a loyal friend she had.
