This picture is heart wrenching!
Leao sat by her owners grave, who died in last weeks catastrophic landslides in Brazil, for several consecutive days.
Was she paying tribute or waiting for her return?
We can only imagine how confused and lost this poor creature is.
Her owner Cristina Maria Casario Santana was lost in the countries worst flood disaster on record that claimed the lives of at least 655 people.
We hope somebody has room for Leao in their home and can take her in.

Some of the most devoted fans in history are those of Michael Jackson, so it is no surprise that the fans have come out in droves to shower his mausoleum with gifts.
The staff at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, CA have realized the commodity that they have with the King of Pop, so they've decided to bank on it! Now, if you want to bring MJ a gift at his gravesite, the staff will gladly take it to him for you - for a $3 surcharge.
This new gifting policy is now the only way to have tokens of affection brought into the singer's mausoleum. And by that, we mean flowers, because the new rules also state that anything but flowers, meaning candles, teddy bears and shrines, will be immediately tossed. And, should the tomb get a little crowded, the flowers will then be placed outside of his final resting place.
Hmm. We don't think too many fans are going to be happy with this arrangement. We're ready to hear all kinds of backlash!

Another day, another Jackson family legal dispute!
The latest comes from Randy, who sent out a tweet to his fans letting them know that he was attempting to get cemetery restrictions bypassed so that they could visit Michael's grave on the anniversary of his passing.
One more thing…. I’m meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale.
Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of ForestLawn, on the 25th.
I'll will inform you all soon.
However, this has infuriated the families of others buried near Michael who don't want to see just anyone allowed through! Clark Cable III, grandson of the buried close by Hollywood icon Clark Gable, has said he's concerned the ground "wouldn't be as sacred" if Randy gets his wish.
What do U think?? Should Michael's fans be able to visit his grave or should that area be kept private for the sake of the other families of those buried near him??

This is actually very sweet.
Lisa Marie Presley is pleading for fans of her ex-husband Michael Jackson to send flowers to his grave as it's been noticeably empty.
She writes on her blog:
"Greetings MJ Fans….
While visiting him a few days ago at Forest Lawn, Riley and I couldn't help but notice that, while there are a few bouquets, candles and gifts there is a very large empty space around him and in front of him that could use a whole lot more.
While, I am sure that the staff at The Holy Terrace do their very best to place what is sent and what is placed at the door at his tomb, I thought you might like to know that he would want and deserves more than what is there and I had an idea…….
Some may or may not know this but his favorite flower was the Sunflower.
They made him happy because they looked happy to him, Thus, he called them "The Happy Flower".
When we were married , I would try and fill up rooms with them wherever he was.
I wanted to bring something to place near him that he liked and that wouldn't die so I brought a large vase of silk sunflowers and placed them near him.
This barely made any kind of dent in the atmosphere so I thought of maybe letting those who care know what the situation is and how we can solve it.
I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with Gifts and flowers by his fans, I thought if whoever wants to bought just one silk sunflower each and sent it , the whole area around him and in front of him (As well as the two large empty vases that sit on either side of him) could be filled up in no time , which would be much more appropriate than what the current status is right now.
We can all cause a "Sun shower" if you will………..
He deserves to be flooded and surrounded , LETS SURROUND HIM!
Lots of Love,
There are two Forest Lawns in LA which is confusing,
Below is the correct address to send them to:
The Holy Terrace At Forest Lawn
1712 South Glendale Avenue
Glendale Calif, 91205"
It's nice to see that she still cares about her former spouse even after his death.
