Six weeks by her dead master’s side
A German shepherd named Cash spent six weeks near her dead master’s body after the man apparently killed himself in a remote area, Colorado authorities said.
The 3-year-old female dog was found Sunday in the 200,000-acre Pawnee National Grassland, not far from the body of Jake Baysinger, 25, who it is believed shot himself, The Greeley Tribune reported Tuesday.
He had been reported missing on June 28, but Weld County Sheriff deputies had been unable to find the man or his pickup, according to a UPI version of the story.
A rancher found the man’s body after first seeing the dog, which apparently survived by eating mice and rabbits, the newspaper said. The dog was taken to the Humane Society of Weld County, where she was later picked up by Baysinger’s wife.
