    1920s silent movie star Rudolph Valentino and his #doberman   “Kabar,” born in France, was given to Valentino by a Belgian diplomat when the pup was a few months old

    1920s silent movie star Rudolph Valentino and his #doberman “Kabar,” born in France, was given to Valentino by a Belgian diplomat when the pup was a few months old. From the beginning, Valentino and his dog were inseparable. “Kabar” went everywhere with his owner, traveled in First Class, and slept in his master’s room. We’ll never know why Valentino didn’t take “Kabar” with him on his last trip heading east in 1926, but though the two were 3,000 miles apart, “Kabar” started a mournful howling at the time of Valentino’s death and remained inconsolable. He died within the year and is known to haunt his burial space, forever bound to stay until his human comes back to him. #research #death #loss #grief #afterlife #famousdogs #rudolphvalentino #kabar
