Lana is an 8-month-old puppy from Brazil who was rescued from the streets and adopted by Suelen Schaumloeffel and her fiancé. Since she has found a home forever and is entrusted to her loving homeowners, she has access to everything she has never had before: yummy food each day, a warm home, and two human “parents” who love her dearly.
Lana has found a safe, comfortable and safe life, but she obviously has not forgotten, as is the case for other dogs who are not as good as you.
As the weather in her area got colder, Suelen bought a thicker blanket that Lana could lengthen to make sure she stayed warm in her dog kennel. Little did she know that, after tucking Lana in one evening, her little furry angel would pass on some of the kindness that had been shown to her.
The next morning when Suelen’s fiancé was about to leave for work, he noticed something unusual in front of their house; Lana was outside her kennel, snuggling her new blanket over the fence she had pulled to share with another dog sleeping on the street.
Suelen mentioned she had seen that dog wandering the neighborhood the day before. She wasn’t sure where the other dog came from, as he ran away when they tried to come near him to see if he had a collar or a phone number to call. As the dog slept outside and did not return home, he was probably homeless. Little Lana had become friends with him and decided to share some comfort with him on that cool night.
“I thought, ‘How beautiful what she did for her friend,’” Suelen said.
“My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!”
Since this first gesture of sympathy for the puppies, the couple has seen the dog again and again, but he runs away every time he tries to approach him. They hope he can find his way back when he loses and gives him more water and food outside.
If Lana could, they know she would do the same for her homeless friend.
“She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met,” Suelen said.
“We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life. She reminded me of this.”
