HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (WCNC) -- A picture taken by a 12-year-old girl and posted on a funeral home's Facebook page is being seen around the country. 

It captured a tender moment between man and his best friend. 


A dog named Chief was let into the chapel for a private viewing of his owner's boyfriend, Bill Schiller.

The moment, captured by the little girl, came when Chief jumped up and laid his head on Bill's body.

Chief's owner, Anne-Marie, says Chief and Bill have been close since she rescued him in 2014.

Chief stood by Bill's side through dementia and he's now helping Anne-Marie through the grieving process.
