Many pet owners want to do everything they can to give their furry friends the best life possible. They are part of the family and should be treated as such. Some people even go so far as to provide birthday celebrations for their pets, as you would for a child. A man in Bucaramanga, Colombia, may not have much for himself, but he gives everything he has to his two dogs, Shaggy and Nina.
As Shaggy's birthday approached, the man, Choco, was caught on camera having a little birthday celebration for the pups! They may have been homeless, but Choco wouldn't let them go without a ceremony.
In the video taken by an onlooker, Choco can be seen pulling out a cake and placing candles on top of it. Then he takes out some Christmas hats and puts them on the dogs' heads. It soon becomes clear that it's a little birthday party, and it's very pretty! The dogs and Choco shared some cake afterward and enjoyed their special occasion together:
According to The Dodo website, the person who filmed the video approached Choco to hear his story and perhaps offer him some help. As it turns out, Choco had been living on the streets with his dogs for a few years after escaping an abusive home.
All he wants is to provide a wonderful life for his furry friends, so he gives them everything he has. It may not be much, but it is enough for them. Since the video was shared on social media, many people want to help Choco and follow his journey. He's created an Instagram page so you can follow him and his kids, @joseluis.matos.7906.
Within days, Choco and his dogs have gained over 100,000 followers, and hopefully things will start to turn around for him and his fur babies!
