Sharing is caring. This quote was written keeping humans in mind. But who would have thought that this could apply to animals as well. Lilica, the junkyard dog from inland Brazil has learned so much from this quote that it has inspired so many people over the world.
She was dumped by someone outside the junkyard in which she was later adopted. Soon enough she was pregnant with 8 kids. The problem was poverty. There was not enough in the house to feed her 8 kids and other pets as well. So Lilica took it upon herself to feed everyone.
Daily, she would walk 4 miles into the city and bring food not only for her pups but other animals as well. In city she found teacher Luca, who would give her food. She would eat her share there and instead of leaving, would pick up the rest and carry it to the junkyard all the way back 4 miles.
Lilica endures great discomfort to feed her loved ones. It is a lesson in selflessness. And we SHOULD learn from it.
