In the middle of nowhere

A man was riding his bike in the desert, "10 miles away from the nearest anything."

But as he traveled down the road, something on the side compelled him to stop:

The puppy was sitting on the side of the road waiting for its owner, who clearly had no intention of coming back for him. The cyclist knew that the dog would die if he left him there, so he did the right thing. He put the abandoned puppy in his shirt and pedalled home with him.

A special kind of hero!
