Lana is an 8-month-old puppy living a wonderful life with her owners, Suelen Schaumloeffel, and Suelen’s fiancé. However, for Lana, life wasn’t always picture-perfect.
In fact, before she had a home she was a stray running around the streets of Brazil. Her luck turned around when Schaumloeffel rescued her and gave her a forever home. But just because Lana is now living a comfy life doesn’t mean she has forgotten how rough life can be on the streets.
Lana has a pretty sweet doghouse where she sleeps, and it is fitted with a very plush blanket. And one night, she did something completely unexpected and heartwarming that Schaumloeffel’s fiancé saw early the next morning when he was headed off for work.
Apparently, Lana had dragged her blanket across the yard over to the fence where a stray dog was sleeping. Lana was lying on one half of the blanket, while the other half had been draped through the fence in order for the stray dog to sleep on the other half.
The fact that Lana has enough compassion and kindness to share her blanket is truly a humbling lesson that we can all learn so much from.
Schaumloeffel told The Dodo, “I thought, ‘How beautiful what she did for her friend.’ My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity! She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met. We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life. She reminded me of this.”
Schaumloeffel had spotted the stray dog the day before, however, she wasn’t sure whether he was indeed a stray or not. She tried to get close to him, but every time she did he ran away. Lana was the one who managed to lend him a helping hand. Schaumloeffel followed her lead by leaving out some food and water for him – eventually being able to get him some help.
All thanks to Lana’s good deed!
