A dog, “Leao”, sits for a second consecutive day, next to the grave of  her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in the week’s  catastrophic landslides in Brazil, at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near  Rio de Janiero, on Jan. 15. Brazilians braced for more rain Saturday,  fearing further landslides after walls of muddy water tore through towns  and claimed some 550 lives in the country’s worst flood disaster on  record.
Anyone who has ever owned a dog will probably get a lump in his or her throat. I did even with my dog in my lap as I type this message.   :/
