Canines have long been regarded as man’s most loyal companion, and a stray dog in Turkey displayed its love for humans in a most profound way. This dog interrupted a scene right in the middle of a play to comfort an actor, who was lying on the floor pretending to be i.nj.ur.ed. He didn’t like watching him suffer and wanted to cheer him up.
According to reports, the adorable moment was filmed during a theatrical performance in Turkey earlier in September, where actor Numan Ertuğrul Uzunsoy played a character who had been i.nj.ur.ed. While the audience knew Numan was just playing his part, the canine thought he was actually in p.ain. The dog is seen wagging its tail as it walked between the other actors to reach Numan.
“I felt warmth on my face. First, I thought my co-star was approaching me. I was very happy when I felt the dog’s kisses. I was very touched. He was like an angel who wanted to help me. It was a very emotional moment for me. I was not expecting it,” said Numan.
Numan told The Dodo the character he was playing was ‘in great p.ain’ and ‘breathing hard’ after falling off a horse. His co-stars stepped back as he lay on the ground, but he wasn’t alone for long as the wandering dog soon made its approach. The dog walked between the other actors and wagged its tail as it started to sniff around Uzunsoy’s head.
Though the dog’s arrival wasn’t scripted, the audience welcomed the new cast member with open arms. Numan said they were ‘very happy’ and ‘cheered’ when the dog came to his rescue, and added that his cast mates ‘loved’ the caring creature.
A crew member eventually helped the sweet dog out of the stage, but not before giving him the belly rubs that he so deserved. The canine remained on the sidelines for a while before walking away from the venue, robbing Numan of the chance to thank him properly for the kindness he had shown. Numan hoped to meet the pup again so he can help him find a forever home.
One of the crew eventually escorted the sweet dog offstage, where it remained for a while. After making sure the “h.urt” man was OK, it strolled away. Numan, on the other hand, hopes the meeting that day is just the first act of their story.
He wants to reunite with the stray and help him find a home, returning the favor for the kindness it showed. “The next day I went to the same place, looking for him. People told me he usually hangs out there. I went again today,” Numan said. “I’ll look for him until I find him. I’ve always loved animals.”
