After Brazil flooding, loyalty to the dead

As the death toll from devastating flooding in Brazil continues to rise, a single picture drives home the sense of loss.

Leao, a medium-sized brown mutt, lies next to the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in the catastrophic landslides caused by heavy rain. This AFP/Getty picture was taken on Saturday, the second consecutive day that the dog refused to leave the woman's grave at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero.

Brazilians are bracing for more rain, fearing more landslides after waves of muddy water swallowed towns in the country's worst flood disaster on record.

At least 655 deaths were reported in a mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro state, northeast of the city of Rio.

Sadder still is that those boxes in the back look like "homes", even a church in the background. No wonder the death toll is so high, those poor people.

Certainly makes me want to hug my pooch tighter. The devastation around the world is getting scarier by the day.

OMG, I thought they there were homes. I had to take a second closer look.

I don't think they are homes, it looks like a cemetery. That is how the "graves" were in Bermuda, built up not down. I could be wrong though. Very sad.

I just googled it, they are gaves, I don't know why they look like that though.

A yes, I had to take a third look. They are graves. I was told (not sure if this is true or not) but a friend of mine who used to vacation in New Orleans (prior to the hurricane disaster there) that the graves were built up because of the land being kind of swampy in some areas of the south. The caskets would eventually surface to the top, so they build them up. This may be why they do it in Brazil that way. Though Not sure why this lady's grave was done underground.
