Whoever said ‘it’s a dog’s life’ obviously never met this poor dog. One minute it’s walking along the road in India, probably wondering if a tourist will take pity on it and give it some of their lunch, then next it’s fallen into a pool of hot tar and become a dog statue—frozen in the black residue and stuck to the floor. Oh, cruel world!But fortunately for him, he was spotted by a kind stranger who called Animal Aid Unlimited, a bunch of superheroes in India who help out street animals.They took the unfortunate mutt back to their place in Udaipur, Rajasthan and rubbed vegetable oil on him.
And lo! He recovered and rose like a phoenix from the ashes, except a much more tarry phoenix who rose from a tar pool and not ashes. But you get my drift. And now he’s a happy dog bouncing about all happy and dog-like.
