A video of a busy city road in India has been making the rounds on Twitter, winning people’s hearts.
The 41-second clip shows a stray dog, standing by a traffic policeman waiting to cross the road at a safe time. The road is occupied by commuters, until the policeman steps forward under the glaring sun and stops traffic to let the doggo pass.
Take a look.

Too cute. Understanding between the cop n the dog is unbelievable. And the patience with which dog is waiting should be emulated— Meeta Mishra (@meetami) September 1, 2020
