Stray Dog Gets In Nativity Scene Manger And Comes With A Heartwarming Surprise For The Community
During the Christmas and New Year holidays, a charming Nativity scene was set up in a modest tent in Palenque's main square. Many classic Christmas figures were displayed in a calm setting.
Everything appeared to be usual until the townspeople saw an unexpected visitor. It found out that the manager had been seen by a stray dog who chose to use it as a refuge. But she wasn't by herself!
One of those who observed the puppy curled up inside the tent was local journalist Eric Guzmán. Curiously, the pooch, like Mother Mary, did not stop to just relax. She had given birth to a brood of lovely puppies on the warm ground full of straw.
The stray may have struggled to find a home for her infants, but she was fortunate to have seen the manger. "I was awestruck, and at the same time joyful seeing that she had her puppies in a safe place where they won’t get wet or cold," Guzmán said. "It's been cold lately in Palenque, but it’s usually hot throughout the year."
As word got out about the pup family, many people from Palenque came to see them and provide them with food and water. The neighborhood was ecstatic to learn about the canines' apparent meaning, and even local officials got involved. The officials chose to keep the mother dog and her puppies.
Animal activists from Dejando Huellitas S.O.S. Palenque, on the other hand, attempted to care for and shelter the dogs. They intended to find these adorable puppies a permanent home after the holidays.
While Guzmán didn’t see the birth of puppies in a religious view, he hoped the story could raise public awareness about animals. "Hopefully, we as citizens will become more aware when it comes to dogs, to adopt strays [rather than buy dogs]," Guzmán shared. "We should love dogs, no matter where they come from."
