Recently, Suelen Schaumloeffel a journalist in Brazil, noticed her adopted puppy doing something so thoughtful for a stray dog that she was overwhelmed with emotion. She noticed her puppy, Lana, had taken her blanket over to their fence and shared it with a stray dog on the street!
Suelen posted the tender moment on Facebook and explained that the weather has been a bit chilly in the area, so Suelen and her partner had bought Lana a new blanket for her dog house. When she and her boyfriend checked in on Lana they saw the touching scene.
“Last night, before bed, we tucked the cover of the Lana in the little house so she could curl up and sleep. Today was the scene from the photo,” Suelen wrote.
“Seeing the friend without a home and cold, Lana did not hesitate to share her blanket. She pulled it over to the fence and offered it to her friend. Each on one side of the fence, but both warm.”
Suelen wrote that she was incredibly moved by what she saw. “I was so overwhelmed by her generosity!”
Lana’s compassion prompted Suelen to wonder “Can a dog be more supportive and rational than we are, what do we call ourselves humans? Yes! How many times do we see a similar circumstance, of someone in need and simply ignore it. We do nothing about it? Pretending to not see, does not eliminate the problem, but gives the false sense that the problem does not exist. Holy ignorance!”
She said she is so proud of Lana and has taken Lana’s “example of generosity” to heart. “We seem to be losing our humanity. Lucky for us we have these special beings to shake us [up] from time to time.”
Suelen shared with the Dodo that Lana was rescued from the streets last year and said that she and her partner are now trying to help Lana’s stray friend. He runs away whenever they try to get close but they are leaving out food and water for him and hope that if the dog is lost they will be able to help him.
Share Lana’s beautiful act of kindness with your friends and family.
