Statue of Greyfriars Bobby the Skye Terrier in Edinburgh

Greyfriars Bobby, the Skye Terrier, spent 14 years guarding the grave of his owner and former night watchman, until he too passed away. The story of his loyalty moved Lady Burdett-Coutts so much, she commissioned a water fountain topped with a statue of the loving little dog in 1873. You can still visit this statue at the junction of George IV Bridge and Candlemaker Row.
