In fact, we are all standing on the shoulders of those before us. Whether these are our parents or grandparents, most of us can say that we wouldn’t be like today without someone to help us. When we succeed, it is our responsibility to help those who have helped us. Dogs seem to understand this lesson as well as humans! In Brazil, the story is about how you can take care of others. Living in the slums of Brazil is not an easy life. They often live a poor life.
Thankfully, it didn’t stop the woman from taking the dog she found home. She lives in a poor village and she couldn’t help all the animals. In our lives, when we have the opportunity, we often don’t help because we think, “If we can’t help everyone, we won’t help.” Even in poverty, this kind woman knew they wouldn’t. She can help the animals that live around them who are lost, but can help one. When she adopted her dog and brought it home, she didn’t anticipate what would happen next.
Stray animal adoption always had a learning curve, which this woman knew. The dog she adopted was a little uncomfortable with someone at home, especially after spending years on the street. Knowing this, she created a dog shelter outside the house, while making her comfortable. When the dog got used to his new life of love, he was still allowed to run around as needed.
He came and went frequently during the day, and his stay in the shelter became longer and longer. One day, the woman woke up in the middle of the night and noticed that the dog was missing. She thought a little about it (he tended to explore) and fell asleep again. She was intrigued when she woke up the next night and the dog was gone! She decided to chase her dog the next night to see where he was going. She chased her dog and she didn’t expect to see what she was doing.
She quietly crawls behind the dog and finally goes down the street to chase the dog. A woman was waiting on the street. The dog immediately shook his tail towards the female! After the dog appeared, the woman lowered the bag and fed her dog the food she brought!
All the while, the dog was getting food from someone on the street! Despite its shocking exposure, it wasn’t the crazy part! The woman tied up the rest of the food and put it on the floor. The dog picked it up and stepped in again! The owner didn’t know what would happen next and tracked it a second time. Finally, the dog put his bag in his mouth and arrived at a open land. He dropped his bag and sat down and waited. Shortly thereafter, stray animals appeared from all over the premises and everyone came forward! The dog has been feeding his old family at home all the time! Goats, dogs and kittens all lived on the food they brought every night! The animals that took care of him are now taken care of by him.
