My Little Dog Maestro 10:10 – Hero of the Day

Maria Mac Dalland, Denmark, 2019

6 min.Series (fiction)

Autumn has come. Thomas and Maestro are out for a walk, when they spot a little dog out in a lake, whimpering and almost drowning. Thomas jumps into the ice cold water and recues the little dog. As it’s freezing, Thomas rushes back home to get the dog warmed up, leaving Maestro behind. Feeling overlooked, Maestro grumpily walks around the lake – but when he spots another dog in the lake – this time a puppy, he reluctantly jumps in to save him and brings him back to the house. It turns out that the dog and the puppy are in fact mother and child, and they are homeless. But when Thomas' friend, the local Grocer, hears that there are two homeless dogs in the village, he kindly adopts them, and for once, a selfless Maestro, realises that helping others can make you a hero.
