     But not before long, they realised that he had a gang of dogs accompanying him. Four concerned dogs had showed up at the entrance of the hospital and were waiting for César. They were concerned about their homeless master, who the nurses soon learned had been for some time forgoing his own meals to feed the dogs.    
     Mamprim snapped a photo of the touching scene and later posted it on Facebook, saying.
     “I came across this today. At the hospital where I work, at 3 A.M. while their master (who lives on the street) was being treated, his companions waited at the door.” A simple person, without luxury, who depends on help to overcome the hunger, the cold, the pain, the evils of the world, has by his side the best companions, and the exchange is reciprocal.

     An exchange of love, affection, warmth and understanding. A person who confessed to us that he stops eating to feed them. Mamprim continued.

     Speaking to The Dodo, Mamprim said, “They are all well taken care of and chubby".
     The faithful canines were anxiously anticipating César’s safe return. Fortunately, the animals reunited with their owner in no time.
After some time, the hospital staff were in for a surprise. They realised that a gang of dogs had accompanied César. Four dogs had come to the entrance of the hospital, and they were waiting for César!
Eagerly waiting dogs!
The dogs were worried about their master (the homeless César). The nurses understood that he had not been eating properly because he had saved his food for the dogs.
Mamprim took a photo of the emotional scene. She posted it in on social media - in a medium called Facebook. She shared the story with the picture in Facebook so that such acts of kindness reaches out to all people. The post said that at the hospital where she worked, she saw that scene at \(3 AM\). She had mentioned that a homeless master of four dogs was being treated in emergency while his companions waited at the door. She further added that he was a simple person without any comforts and that he depended on others help to satisfy his hunger, cold, pain and the evils of the world. Evils of the world refers to the problems in our society like poverty, racism, increasing prices etc. But he had moral support from his companions. The love and kindness that he shared with the dogs was mutual; in return, the dogs were also equally affectionate and stayed by his side.
The exchange of love, affection, warmth and understanding was mutual between Cesar and the dogs. Cesar had accepted to the nurses that he had stopped eating to feed his dogs! Mamprim spoke to an American media called The Dodo (that focuses on spreading animal stories and animal rights issues). She said to The Dodo that the dogs looked well taken care of and healthy.
The loyal dogs were concerned and worried. They were eagerly expecting that their master Cesar should return safe. Luckily, Cesar recovered soon, and the animals joined Cesar.
