This is the inscription on the monument erected by Mrs. S. E. Stuart* of Back Bay over the grave of her pet for many years. It tells the story of a real love. The Boston Globe (Boston, Massachusetts), September 5, 1915

But the whole burial plot is not devoted to dogs. One of the handsomest stones in the cemetery is erected to the memory of "Dewey." The epitaph is worthy of a place in feline history. It reads . . . Boston Post, Boston, Massachusetts, January 11, 1921

*Research is indicating that Mrs. S. E. Stuart is possibly / probably Sarah Ellen Rice Stuart nee Tarleton (1831-1915). Sarah buried her first husband in January of 1862, her only child in September of 1862, and her second husband in 1886. When this Sarah died in 1915, it is believed that she was the last of her multiple siblings. She was laid to rest at Edgewood Cemetery in Nashua, New Hampshire.

"He was only a cat"

loneliness and pain.
