His Ex-Wife Left Him Nothing But This Dog, What He Did Next Will Leave You in Awe

On his 30th birthday, Rafael Mantesso’s wife decided to end their marriage and take everything from him including furniture, cookware, decorations and their photos. Luckily, she didn’t take Jimmy Choo, the former couple’s bull terrier named after her favorite shoe designer.

Instead of sinking into depression, the artist used his best friend and the blank walls of his empty apartment in Brazil to create something stunning. At one point, when Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the blank canvass, Mantesso found himself grabbing a marker and drawing a completely new world around his pup.

“Suddenly, I felt his long-dormant inspiration for drawing, for art, for life—returning,” Mantesso wrote in BORED PANDA.

Nowadays, Mantesso, who resides in the municipality of Carangola, spends most of his spare time snapping photos of his five-year-old dog, whom he places alongside cartoons he sketched.

With Mantesso’s talent for sketching and Jimmy Choo’s charms, the pair comes up with dozens of funny images in which the bull terrier is portrayed as a superhero, an angel, a rockstar, a cow, and even as Maleficient. The artist also made his pooch appear as if he is taking part in a couple of unusual activities.

Speaking to The Daily Mail UK, Mantesso revealed: “Taking pictures and creating art with Jimmy is my hobby, but it’s so great that I have to time to play with Jimmy, who is my best friend.”

According to him, his main motivation to snap the strange photos is to show people that the bull terrier, contrary to people’s perception, is a “lovely and inspirational” breed of dog.

Not surprisingly, the footwear brand Jimmy Choo took notice of Mantesso’s masterpiece. Captivated by the photos he took, Jimmy Choo’s creative director Sandra Choi asked him to create a series of illustrations to decorate a number of the brand’s accessories.

Woman Shares Husband’s Compassionate Reaction after Baby Gets Scalded with Boiling Water

Published

Parents love their children so much that they would surely get angry when someone harms their kids! But what if the incident was not intentional? How would you react?

A mom named Jinghan Naan of Singapore had a first-hand experience on the matter when her daughter got scalded with boiling water by their new helper. As expected, she was furious about what happened but her heart changed after hearing her husband’s compassionate reaction.

According to Jinghan, their helper had just been with them for a week. The woman had just finished pouring boiling water into a thermos when Masha, Jinghan’s daughter, looked at her. In an attempt to amuse the kid, the helper began shaking the thermos, forgetting that she had not covered it yet. This resulted in the boiling water splashing all over the place, hitting the kid on the arm!

Jinghan’s husband Aizat immediately took Masha to the bathroom to run cool water on her arm but while both of them had gotten soaking wet in the process, blisters were already forming on the child’s arm. So, they took her to the hospital for treatment.

Seeing her child suffering, Jinghan felt anger and frustration. She was very furious at the new helper, with her anger growing each time the baby cries.

Hours later, as Masha slumped on Aizat’s shoulder out of exhaustion, the couple had a talk. But it wasn’t something Jinghan had expected.

Instead of saying they should fire the helper, Aizat told Jinghan to ask if she was alright. The shocked wife wondered why that was so and Aizat explained that they were so focused on Masha that they had forgotten the helper must have suffered injuries, too. For sure, she was also shocked and had felt guilty about what happened but it was all an accident.

Jinghan insisted at first that the helper was to blame for the accident but Aizat gently reminded her that the woman was human and makes mistakes; she did not want it to happen.

Realizing that her husband was right, Jinghan did what Aizat said. She later shared that both Masha and the helper are doing fine now – and the woman is still with them.

What a beautiful lesson about compassion

Hayati was quickly rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery in order to stop her bleeding.

Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.

The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.

May this incident serve as a warning to those who are taking their selfies. Remember that no matter how “cool” your selfie is, it won’t matter much if you are not alive and well.

The PRC released the results of the exam on December 12, but in a tragic twist of fate, this is also the day that the two died in a car accident around dawn.

The two are both from Mandaue City, Ferolin was driving their Isuzu NU-X car with plate number ABN 5206 with Carvajal also inside. The car went out of control as they were passing on a flyover, resulting in them hitting the metal railing of the said flyover.

According to SPO4 Ramon Budiongan of Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) Traffic Patrol Group, the two lost their lives at dawn in the car accident that took place in Barangay Barrio Luz, Cebu City on Tuesday, December 12,2017, the same day that it was released that the two of them passed the board exam.

On Wednesday, the following day, their University’s Facebook Page, CDU College of Nursing Alumni Association expressed their mourning in the sudden death of both nurses who had just passed the exam.

“Heaven gained 2 new RNs (registered nurses) today. Our prayers are with you and your families. RIP Louis Ferolin and Alexa Carvajal of Batch 2017,”

Instead of starting their life after the exam, and making their families proud, their families are now mourning for the two. This unfortunate accident makes us realize that we should treasure everyone around us because we do not know when they will be taken from us.

Rest in peace Louis Mitchell Nayre Ferolin and Alexa Eddy Ceniza, you have made your family proud, for the last time.
