For Zarate, living isn’t a problem as long as he keeps his job as a garbage collector. Of course, it isn’t easy for him to collect trash all day, but his work will probably be a lot less tiring if people just know how to show a little appreciation. He no longer expects people to thank him, so when a dog that he rescued gave him a sweet gesture of gratitude, the feeling was just so overwhelming.
It was a typical workday for Zarate and his workmate. They were making rounds in their truck when they noticed something moving in the concrete canal. Zarate then took a closer look, and he found out that it was a dog trying hard to stay afloat in the water.
Zarate immediately went out of the truck and grabbed an empty sack that the dog could hold on to as he pulled him out of the canal. But sadly, the pup was too tired from trying to keep afloat, so he couldn’t cling onto it for a long time.
Zarate is not the type of person who gives up quickly. Using all his strength, he was able to pull the pup close to the canal’s edge. That’s when he lifted him to the ground and saved him from drowning.
Zarate’s coworker made sure to record the dog’s amazing rescue for everyone to see. In the video, the dog’s sweet gesture of gratitude could be seen—he hugged Zarate because, without him, he could not have made it. Zarate, on the other hand, felt overwhelmed by the dog’s action because he rarely receives a gesture of appreciation for a great job.
The dog couldn’t stay long with Zarate because he had to go back to his home in a ranch nearby. So when the dog left, Zarate continued with his rounds while feeling a sense of fulfillment for saving a dog in need. The pup’s sweet gesture of gratitude was enough to make him appreciate his job more.
