In the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in central Italy that killed nearly 300 people, survivors have started the incredibly difficult task of burying their loved ones.
The quake, which took place last Wednesday, not only took lives but changed lives as well - including the life of one dog who couldn't bear to say goodbye.
In photos that have gone viral, a cocker spaniel named Flash is seen leaning against the casket of his owner, Andrea Cossu. He reportedly refused to leave the spot and pawed at the casket repeatedly during a mass funeral when Cossu was buried on Friday. The two were known to be an inseparable duo.
