Maria Isabel Benites Chamba from Ecuador passed away at the age of 95. A memorial service was attended not only by Chamba's numerous relatives, but also by her most faithful friend, Bumer.

"I want to go and say goodbye to my mom"

Chamba's faithful dog Bumer insisted on doing even more. He stayed until the end of the ceremony, as he "was always there with his owner," said a funeral home spokesman, adding "You could see the loyalty and affection that existed between her and her dog."

The procession formed behind the hearse that carried Maria. The back door of the vehicle was left open so that the casket could be seen by the relatives. Everyone followed the car as it was driving away. Bumer was still there. In fact, he did not hesitate to climb into the car to sit next to his beloved human. "He circled the hearse before hopping aboard as if to say, 'I want to go and say goodbye to my mom,'" the funeral home spokesperson said. Watch the video of this touching moment:

Unconditional love

According to the funeral home employee, it was "a tremendous example of loyalty". Until the last moment, Bumer was loyal to his owner. The dog now lives with Chamba's relatives who take good care of him.
