Tender Stories: The Penguin Dindin and His Eternal Thanksgiving

João knew that if he did not act quickly, the bird would lose its life waiting for professional help to arrive. Then, he did not hesitate for a second to pick up the animal and take him home immediately to take care of it .
For a week, João was cleaning, feeding and caring for the little penguin with total dedication. He even gave it a funny name – the penguin Dindin or Dindim. “Dindin” or “dindim” is a popular way to call money in Brazilian Portuguese.
Fortunately, the penguin recovered and João returned him to the sea to return to his own. But to the old man’s surprise, Dindin returned to the same beach a few months after his departure. And what could have been a coincidence, it became a habit…
The rescue of Dindin by João happened five years ago. Since then, Dindin returns once a year to the same beach and lives for eight months with his human best friend. A lesson of gratitude and affection, without borders or species.
