Thousands of people in the Brazilian southern town of Caxias do Sul, on the state of Rio Grande do Sul mobilized on social networks since late last Friday, on a noble campaign spread over Facebook: to find Babilônia, a puppy that for more than 5 years is a loyal company to the old hippie “Seco (Dry, in portuguese)” on the streets. The puppy was gone the night before.
Seco, 38, said he and the dog were separated while they slept in last Thursday. Seco’s crafts and even his clothes were taken sneakily while he slept at the central region of town. “Brother, I was tired, not having slept right for five days, and I decided to rest a bit before the Chimarruts(a brazilian reggae band) concert. Leaned back on my backpack and when I woke up, only I was under the covers,” said Seco.
But no material thing has the same importance for the man of minimalist lifestyle than the animal. Babilônia is a small dog, a pinscher mix with Mutt that wears neck adornments made by the owner, like a collar of shells.
The solidarity of friends and anonymous to Seco’s cause has maintained steady and strong demand from Babilônia. “They gave me wire for me to do my work and some girls brought me some clothes.” The hippie also posed for a photo holding a poster. As shown, disseminated through social networks, crying for help to find his four-legged companion.
Seco has not recorded the occurrence in the police. And decided to investigate on his own. I talked to a lot of bums on the street, thieves, I went up the slum, asked around. I hear he is in a near neighborhood. I am soon going after him again,” he said.
