The number of stray dogs keeps growing by the day. We often see them roam the streets, sleeping in parks, and at times in stores and workplaces. Sadly, there aren’t enough shelters to accommodate them.
A man, named Yusuf Kilicsari from Turkey chanced upon a stray walking on the side of the road as he was driving by. Quite a common sight, but what drew his attention was the thing that the dog was carrying in her mouth. She was seen trotting the sidewalk with a bowl of food that she took several blocks away from where Yusuf initially saw her.
His curiosity piqued, so he followed the dog as she remained steady and focused on her mission. She stopped upon reaching a junkyard. He pulled over, parked his car, and to his surprise, he saw four puppies approaching as the mother dog carefully placed down the bowl. The puppies shared the meal as the mom laid her back to watch her puppies indulge. The puppies all looked well-fed and nourished.
Yusuf still in awe of what he just witnessed stayed a little longer and managed to capture a photo of them sharing the precious moment. The puppies are very lucky to have such a caring and loving momma. At one point, one of the puppies was seen taking a break from his meal to give his mom and kiss and briefly play with her. He later posted the picture, and was captioned “That’s what motherhood is.”
It was no surprise that shortly after posting the photo it took the internet by storm, and it was all for the right reasons. Some people were left clamoring to get an update as to what had happened next to the family.
Truly, a mother’s love knows no boundaries and limitations, and this story is another proof of that.
