As many of you will no doubt already know, I absolutely love dogs. There are many reasons for this – their funny noses, their little mannerisms – but the main one is how loyal and loving they are.
These traits were perfectly demonstrated in Brazil recently, after a homeless man was admitted to hospital unexpectedly.
According to The Dodo, a man named César was being treated for a pre-existing condition at the Hospital Regional Alto Vale in Rio do Sul at around 3am on Sunday morning.
Although he had no family or friends by his side, staff noticed something very special about his visit – a group of dogs had accompanied Cesar, and were waiting patiently for their friend to come back out.
It looks like Cesar is the leader of this pack, and his faithful followers simply couldn’t leave until they knew he was okay.
