the REAL Underdog!

I've just found a role model for my little Santiago de Montréal This is traffic camera footage of a dog rescue on a busy highway somewhere in Chile.

Be humbled.

Yea it's amazing... apparently it's been floating on the web for a while but this I only saw it today and was SO impressed, really.

This one dog did more to help he fellow being then most humans do for their fellow man in a lifetime. A far better role model than most supposed celeb role models we have today. And the dog survived!!!

It IS inspiring and emotional and I'll admit damnit, I teared up too!

That's incredible! I love it when I see examples of how animals have a lot more going on than we give them credit for. Which is another reason why I'm glad I don't eat them (little plug for vegetarianism there)

No way!! I don't believe it!! That has to be fabricated digitally somehow, I mean look at the camera angle. ;) peace

Chile, is infamous for having huge amounts of stray dogs living on the streets the authorities poison them as if they are vermin. But what a lovely thing to see, People, watch and learn. I read this article this morning which had me seething:

I value those dog's lives more than those evil bastards.

Mitz that isfuckery MOST FOUL! I swear If I had been there I'd have roasted their nuts on the fire

There was a cxase about 20 years back, I can recall it as if it were yesterday. Some waste of Oxygen studens at one of the Universities in Halifax NS lit a kitten on fire and dropped it from a 10th story window.. Amazingly the kitty survived and the fuckers were charged!
