It is customary to praise dog loyalty both in everyday life and in art.
José Antonio Pereira is an elderly Brazilian who has to make a living by collecting garbage. During his work, he is accompanied every day by two large dogs, whom José calls Bob and Chiara.
One day at work, the man had a heart attack. The dogs immediately realized that something was wrong, but could not help their master. But their noise attracted the attention of passers-by, and they called an ambulance.
But the doctors were in a difficult situation: Bob and Chiara defended the owner. They were not sure that strangers in the same white robes would not harm the unconscious José.
The man was laid on the gurney, but the dogs flatly refused to keep their distance. Immediately after the doctors, they entered the ambulance. Chiara settled down in the hallway while Bob lay down by the cave. On reflection, the girls realized that the dogs would not back down. So they went with them to the hospital.
Of course, Bob and Chiara didn’t get dropped off at the hospital. But they remained faithfully waiting for their man in front of the door where they saw him for the last time. Caring doctors brought them food and water.
Fortunately, Jose’s health did not deteriorate, so he was discharged from the hospital a day later. The dogs were happy to be reunited and the doctors who shared their story on social media were really impressed with their dedication.
