There are plenty of good boys out there but there are never candidates for the best boy ever. Now we may actually have one and the dog is from the Philippines in a place there called Tagum City, Davao del Norte. A Facebook video from that area suddenly became a viral sensation after a peculiar scene on the road was spotted.
In the said video, a mixed-breed dog was seen pushing the wheelchair of a paraplegic man towards their supposed destination. Watch the heartwarming video below.
Straight out of the movies that one, someone call Hollywood, we got the spiritual sequel to “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale.” The man with the wheelchair is named Danilo Alarcon and his loyal helper and companion he named Digong, after the current Philippine president. Danilo has had Digong ever since the latter was just a puppy. Their bond goes back months ago, seven to be exact, which is Digong’s age.
The thing is, Danilo did not even expect that Digong to help him in that incident. Danilo was just having a rest when Digong surprised him by getting off his lap and helping him push the wheelchair. It’s like the dog can sense what his owner is feeling, what did we ever do to deserve such loyal creatures.
As for Danilo, he was got paralyzed and couldn’t walk or stand anymore because of a motorcycle accident. Danilo treats Digong now like a son because he is with him wherever he goes. The man would like everyone to know that even dogs have deep emotions. Digong is certainly no exception to this.

Sid does not like his name, he would have preferred that his parents christened him Nemo instead. No, not the MIA talking fish from Pixar, he just likes that name because it is the Latin equivalent of ‘nobody,’ and that is who Sid is.
