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.
