The 23-year-old Leonardo Valdes from Concepción, Chile was walking with his dog when he was suddenly hit by a car. Unfortunately, help for the young man arrived way too late, and he died on the street. The body was covered with orange cloth and laid by the sidewalk.
His dog Doki stared at the covered body with great sadness. He laid there until the body was taken. The picture went viral in a instant on social media, which made quite a stir among the spectators.
The faithful Doki was left without a roof over his head. Fortunately, one of the members of the family of the deceased person decided to take him home.
The dog was also present during vigil and at the funeral. He was observing the coffin all along as if he was hoping for the fact that his master would get up again and take him for a walk.
Undeniably Leonardo will always have a special place in the heart of this devoted pet.
The relationship between a dog and owner is a special strand of understanding, which can be broken only by death of one of them. This photograph is the best evidence. Share if you’re touched by it.
