Greyfriar's Bobby

The story of Bobby, the Skye terrier which refused to leave his master's grave in historic Greyfriar's churchyard, came to prominence in the 1890s when Eleanor Atkinson, an American, wrote a book about the dog which became a first reading book for a generation of many Americans.
The life-size sculpture of Bobby was erected on a drinking fountain at Greyfriar's churchyard and must be the most photographed dog in Edinburgh.
