For doggos with furparents who have a lot on their plate, the risk of their humans forgetting to feed them is high. Despite how much these humans love their furballs, their busy schedule sometimes keeps them from feeding even themselves.
Fortunately, dogs are extremely intelligent creatures that do not find it hard to fend for themselves. One particular dog in the Philippines proves just how smart and resourceful canines are. The canine’s name is Blu, and his owner Dante Jimenez shared his story with a local newspaper.
Blu finds ways
According to Jimenez, Blu has figured out a way to get food from a vendor who sells food near their house and make Jimenez pay for it. He says it all started when his wife went to see the vendor who sells barbecue and did not notice that Blu tagged along. The wife then gave Blu a piece of barbecue, unaware that the incident would give Blu an ingenious idea.
Since that faithful incident, which happened two years ago, Blu has been sneaking out of the house to see the barbecue vendor unaccompanied. Blu would then stay in front of the vendor and would refuse to leave until the vendor gives him food.
Left with no choice
Out of pity for Blu, the vendor decided to take a picture of the dog and send it to Jimenez. Aware that Blu would not leave until he gets what he wants, Jimenez was left without a choice but to tell the vendor to give Blu food while promising to pay for whatever Blu would consume.
Since then, Blu’s secret trip to the vendor has become a recurring event. Each time, the vendor would take the dog’s picture and send it to Jimenez, who would, in turn, promise to pay the vendor in exchange for feeding Blue.
