A video has gone viral of an elderly man leaving the market in the Philippines with his dog. The tender way he cares for the dog to make sure he stays dry in the rain will melt your heart.
The elderly man was getting ready to leave the Agdao Market when it started to rain. A bystander captured the sweet moment the man took a bag and wrapped it like a cape around the body of the dog. Then he proceeded to tuck the bag in all around his pet.
The dog patiently sat in a basket attached to the front of the man’s bike. As if the cape was not enough, the man retrieved a small hat from the rear basket of the bike. He placed it on the dog’s head and attached the strap to his bike.
Now that the dog was covered and no longer getting wet, he put his gloves on and got on his bike. With a push of the leg, they were off.
With over 170,000 views, this video reminds us all to slow down and treat your dog like a king.
Watch the video below.
CCTV shows the dog’s owner Daniel Cheslin and his girlfriend following the vicious attack, Birmingham Crown Court was told.
There is also footage of the dog, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Rudy, being kicked and slapped, reports Birmingham Live.
Last July, a CCTV operator alerted the RSPCA to the attack in the lift in a block of flat in Solihull.
The footage was taken at Bedford House, Sanda Croft, Smiths Wood , where homeless Cheslin was staying with his girlfriend, Jade Bellingham.
There were three clips from the lift CCTV.
The first showed Cheslin and Bellingham going into the lift and the defendant kicking and slapping the dog, before punching it on the back.
Further footage from July 9 show the couple in the lift with another man.
“Cheslin then pulls the dog so that he seems to lift off from the floor,” said Sarah Pratt, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court.
“He hits the back of the lift with such force it causes the CCTV camera to shake,”
Other clips show the defendant pushing hard down on Rudy’s hind quarters and repeatedly tapping its nose.
Cheslin, 22, was also captured punching Rudy on the top of his head.
Miss Pratt said when Rudy was later examined a veterinary surgeon found it had lost two of its front teeth, which was consistent with what happened in the lift.
The animal also had an injury to its head and a blood-shot eye likely to have been caused by a strike or a punch.
The court heard that Cheslin had also carried out acts of cruelty to a Bull Mastiff puppy called John, that he and his girlfriend had been looking.
A couple living in the block had heard the dog “yelp” when the two of them argued. They had also seen Cheslin pick the puppy up by the skin of its neck before dropping it on the ground and then rubbing its face in urine.
Cheslin would also make the Bull Mastiff sit on a chair and not allow it to move and had punched the dog in the ribs.
Cheslin previously pleaded guilty two charges of animal cruelty, was jailed for 12 months and banned from keeping any animal for 15 years.
Bellingham had earlier been handed a 12 month community order after admitting failing to intervene to stop Cheslin injuring the Bull Mastiff puppy.
In passing sentence Judge Jonathan Gosling said: “This dog was gratuitously ill treated by the defendant. He accepted assaulting it on numerous occasions.
“Rudy was a passive and even tempered dog and despite that the defendant was wantonly cruel.”
Ian Gold, for, Cheslin, said: “He has a number of personal problems not the least of which are depression and anxiety as well as anger management.”
The craziest part of all is that raccoons are actually fairly cute appearance wise. This video offers us a closer glimpse into the life of a raccoon and we cannot begin to imagine the fear that someone would feel if they heard these animals making all sorts of ruckus underneath their porch. However, the people who created this video are not like everyone else when it comes to how they treat raccoons.
Finding raccoons living under the deck of your home is not something that we are usually equipped. Even though the average person would scream in terror, there are others who are more compassionate towards these animals. Take the people in this video for instance. They are treating the raccoons in a kind and peaceful manner and they are receiving the same sort of respect in return.
The raccoons have become used to the treats that they are provided by this family and watching them reach their little paws up from under the porch is an incredible moment. For those who find beauty in all animals, no matter where they are from, this is a moment that you will want to watch over and over again. These raccoons are simply too cute to be ignored.
This is the type of video that has a twist ending. There is no reason to freak out when certain animals decide that they are going to congregate at your home. Raccoons may have a devious appearance but they certainly mean well and they are not looking to harm humans in most instances. Hearing a series of strange noises coming from underneath your porch does not always have to be a cause for alarm.
Once you have seen this video for yourself, please don’t hesitate to share it with your closest friends and loved ones. The animal aficionados in your life are sure to appreciate the tender, loving care with which these animals are being treated. In a world with animals are often treated unfairly, this is the type of ending that we can get behind.
