Superman Wasn’t Around So This Dog Jumped To Action Holding His Hurt Owner Until Paramedics Arrived

On a Facebook page for the paramedics of Bahia Blanca, Argentina, a story was posted last week that made us realize how amazing dogs are and how little we deserve them. A man fell out of a tree he was working on and his faithful pup stayed by his side until, during and even after paramedics came to help him. What a little super hero.

According to the page “Def Civil B. Blanca,” a 28-year-old worker fell out of a tree he was pruning. While waiting for help, he was protected by his dog Tony, until paramedics arrived on the scene.

“At 06:07 p.m. A person pruning a tree in Balboa Street 2473 fell from it from a height of about 2 meters. The 28-year-old worker suffered slight skull trauma, so he was transported by ambulance personnel from the SIEMPRE service. At all times the injured was accompanied by his pet TONY. Police and Civil Defense personnel attended.”

It appears that even after the paramedics arrived, the dog refused to leave his master’s side.

Tony stayed the entire time they treated his best friend.

The dog seemingly held on tighter as they treated his best friend.

He was with him to the very end, all the way up until he was lifted up into the ambulance.

This dog put all of our human best friends to shame, proving once and for all, we don’t really deserve these amazing creatures, especially with all we put them through.

You know what we make animals do. Don’t make me repeat it. Okay, since you’re pushing for it:

For one, we make them pose for embarrassing photos.

You put a fidget spinner on your dog, whose name is also “Fidget?” Just because it’s clever, doesn’t make it right.

We make them live in small cramped spaces.

The crisper? You know dogs are only partially made of lettuce, right?

The work we make these animals do is getting ridiculous.

Just because they can do the work better than us, doesn’t mean we should take advantage of these beautiful beasts.

But, if you’re going to do it anyway. Throw’em a bone every now and then.

They’ll appreciate it, and maybe stick with you the next time you fall out of a tree in Argentina.

Here’s Why Venezuela’s President Claims His Administration Is The “Jews Of The 21st Century”

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has likened the adversity facing his administration to that of the Jews in Hitler’s Germany.

According to The Guardian, Venezuela’s 54-year-old president addressed his cabinet during a televised meeting and said: “We are the new Jews of the 21st century that Hitler pursued. We don’t carry the yellow star of David […] we carry red hearts that are filled with desire to fight for human dignity. And we are going to defeat them, these 21st-century Nazis.” Maduro also compared rallies held by political opponents and protestors to those that the Nazis held during fascist Germany.

The president’s comments came in response to the mounting opposition against his administration. The Guardian reports that Venezuelan officials, and their families, when traveling abroad, have been subject to insults and ridicule from those opposing the regime.

Maduro’s administration has accused protestors of trying to overthrow the government and has called them “terrorists,” Reuters reported.

Although Maduro claims his administration is persecuted, it’s the Venezuelan President’s regime that has been compared to a dictatorship.

Anti-Maduro protesters and political opponents have been subject to rights violations, violence, and even murder, at the hands of the Maduro administration. This chaos has become commonplace in Venezuela, as tensions between those in charge and those protesting has increased.
