Cebu City, Philippines—Dogs always have a special place in people’s hearts.

So it’s no surprise that a photo post involving a dog will go viral on social media.

Take for example this photo captured through a cellphone camera by Joanna Xy-za Ochoa of Mandaue City. In the photo, two dogs are seen waiting for some food from a person having dinner at a side street food stall along Aboitiz Street on Saturday evening, August 3, 2019.

While both were patiently waiting, one of the dogs seemed to have wanted to remind the person of her presence by tapping him with her paw.

CDN Digital posted the photo sent by Ochoa on Monday morning and has since gotten a lot of reaction from netizens.

As of 1 p.m., the post has garnered 186 comments and 1,500 reactions. It was shared 420 times.

Most of the netizens commented on how one of the dogs–particularly the one who was caught tapping on the person– looks like it is still nursing puppies.

Maricel Quiroga Poakeart commented, “hoping one-day stray dogs are never hungry anymore” while Lovekris Bacus said, “Kasakit sa dughan magtanaw ana nila oi.” (My heart aches just by looking at the picture.)

Toffer Elevira shared his experience about sharing food to stray dogs like the ones shown in the picture.

“Kadumdum sad tag pinakalit. I bought some food at the carenderia worth 20 pesos (rajud nga sud an) ..then hatag dayon for the stray dog dool sa boarding house naku.. Hehe 20pesos ra kay poor pa. Wala pa nahalinan ug property.. Puhon..puhon.”

(I remember that I once bought food worth 20 pesos from a small store to feed the stray dog that has been seen near my boarding house. I could only afford to buy 20 pesos worth of food at that time.)

So if by any chance you come across stray dogs and you have some spare food for them, share it with them. Who knows? You may be the reason these fur angels can get through another day. /bmjo
