Photographer Luis Fernando Chumacero captured a delightful series of images depicting the streets of Tupiza, Bolivia during the quarantine period implemented to curb the spread of the virus. As per Los Tiempos, the pictures showcase the army patrolling the area in their van, ensuring that everyone followed the necessary protocols.
Meet Gorda, a lovable canine who lives with the troops in their barracks instead of wandering on the streets. Every unit in the military adopts dogs and they train alongside the soldiers. Gorda is particularly special as she is the mascot of a division, as shared by Colonel Luis Pacheco, Director of the Department of Army Logistics IV. How did Gorda join the group? Well, during the Covid-19 pandemic, Gorda observed the soldiers patrolling the area and was eager to follow them. The troops noticed her enthusiasm and decided to take her “brother” along too. This heartwarming incident was captured by a photographer’s camera by chance.
Once Gorda jumped into the car, another gray dog, known as Multicam, ran towards them and joined in. The picture of the two adorable canines was altered during the chat. Netizens unanimously agreed that the dogs were a delight and brought joy to people, especially during these hectic times of the pandemic.
