If you’re a dog owner, you know that there are times when you wish you could bring your furry friend with you to work. Recently, a photo of a public cleaner in Bangkok, Thailand carrying her small puppy on her back while performing her job went viral on Facebook, winning over the hearts of millions of people.
The dog’s name is Mazda, a Poodle and Shih Tzu mix who is one year old and black and white in color. Her owner, Thitirat Keowa-ram, has become famous for her devotion to the little pooch.
Despite Mazda weighing around 10 kg, Thitirat carries her on her back to work every day. According to the Bangkok Post, it’s her favorite thing to do.
Mazda seems perfectly content as she goes about her day, quietly scanning the streets of a Bangkok suburb while hanging from a vest that Thitirat wears like a backpack. Neither onlookers nor traffic seem to bother her.
Thitirat describes Mazda as a good-natured dog who is always happy to be by her side. She got Mazda from a friend a year ago and says she wakes up at 3 a.m. every day so that she can prepare for work and take her furry companion with her to avoid leaving her alone at home.
Mazda even has her own raincoat to keep her dry during rainy days.
The heartwarming image of Thitirat carrying Mazda to work every day has attracted millions of followers and people’s admiration.
“I see her every day carrying the dog to pick up trash around here. This picture I find very touching because of the closeness and cuteness of the dog. I hope they can stay healthy every day to continue doing their job,” one citizen wrote.
