And here’s a story to slightly melt your frozen vodka cube of a dead heart on the day before Jesus’ born day…..
The New York Daily News brought us this video and story from Brazil of a run-or-die dog friend who chased after an ambulance that was carrying his human. The NYDN says that the dog’s human had a seizure and when an ambulance showed up to take him to the hospital, the devoted dog didn’t want to leave him. The ambulance took off and so did the dog. Celiomar Ferreira do Couto, the paramedic who shot the video, says that the dog ran alongside the ambulance until they stopped and picked him up after realizing he wasn’t going to give up. Once they got to the hospital, the dog stuck by his human’s side. Celiomar said that they were all touched by the dog’s devotion to his human:
“We arrive in events sometimes and have animals that are shy, do not let us get close. But not this reaction. You get touched by the situation, right? Because (it shows) the love the animal has for the owner.”
The hospital hasn’t said how the patient is doing.
That dog must be the Brazilian cousin of Buddy, the dog from Texas from hitched a ride on the outside step of the ambulance carrying his human. Dogs really are the best, but with that said, my dog would never turn into Usain Bolt for me. The only way he’d chase after an ambulance if it was full of bacon and the only way he’d stick by my sick side if I owed him money. He’s a cat when it comes to shit involving using energy.
Here’s the video which might make you feel things. It’s best if you play it on mute while listening to Whitney Houston’s “Run To You.”
I hope that when that dog got on the ambulance, he slapped those paramedics down for making his ass run that far before helping a bitch out.
