Fathima Shaw is a copywriter from Chennai, India.
Chennai has recently been hit by extreme flooding, with reports estimating that 280 people have died in the last month as a result of the heavy rain.
Last week, during a heavy downfall, Shaw posted on her Facebook about an encounter that she claimed happened on her way home from work.
I was getting home early from work today, and this stray dog was following me for like a few hundred yards. That's when I realized it was walking alongside me to show me where the dry areas were!!Every time I stopped, this sweet dog would stop and wait.... I thought I was imagining it at first then I crossed the street and it crossed with me too. It started pacing back and forth when I balked at knee-deep water, came back to me THROUGH THE WATER, and showed me how to traverse it.Wow subhanAllah I can't even.
