I saw a video on Facebook of a heroic dog in Chile. Earlier, another dog had run into the middle of the motorway, and it got knocked down. The hero dog somehow managed to evade several speeding cars, before reaching the first dog that had been run over.
It started to drag the first dog with its paws, and eventually dragged it to the side of the motorway. Some workmen saw what was happening, and they tried to help the hero dog. However, it ran away.
In the video I was watching, the news presenter said that both dogs lived. Unfortunately, I checked several other videos on YouTube, and they all said that the first dog had already been killed. While it’s sad to hear the story didn’t have a happy ending, it doesn’t take anything away from the brave and caring nature of the second dog.
YouTube always provides a list of similar videos, so naturally, I came across another heart-warming video involving injured dogs and motorways. By the way, I prefer cats to dogs, and I think that cats are way too smart to do silly things like running onto motorways! 😀 😉
Blog editor: I would suggest replacing the word “smart” with “lazy”!
Once again, a dog ran onto the motorway and (surprise, surprise!) it got knocked over – what is it with dogs and motorways, anyway??
What was so nice about this story was that one of the dog’s puppies ran onto the road after its mom, and STOPPED the traffic!
It was a puppy, but it was quite a big puppy (not a cute, easy-to-squish-with-your-car kind of puppy). The dog was running round its mom and it kept barking at the cars, so they all eventually had to stop.
Eventually, the police managed to take the injured dog to an animal hospital, and the owner (who saw the drama unfold on TV), came to take away the courageous pup.
