A relaxing walk along the beach is supposed to be a holiday highlight. However, for one vacationing model, it turned into a heartbreaking encounter. The puppy that was dragging his back legs across the ground to get to her seemed to be not long for this world without help, and she knew she couldn’t just leave him to die alone.
Ottawa-based Canadian model Meagan Penman shot to viral fame in June 2014 when the 22-year-old went to great lengths for a wounded animal she found on a beach. Penman was visiting Hua Hin in Thailand when an encounter with a helpless puppy proved just how caring people can be.
“I was just walking along the beach and saw what looked like half a dog sticking out of a small tide pool – I couldn’t understand what I was looking at so I went to have a closer look,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying in 2014. And she may have been taken aback by what she found.
