Otis the dog is providing a little levity to the disaster unfolding in Texas as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The reason? He was spotted wandering around the small city of Sinton carrying a bag of dog food in his mouth. Tiele Dockens snapped the image and posted it online, and it has since gone viral.
Otis got loose from a screen porch on Friday evening in Sinton, Texas, during Hurricane Harvey, Chron.com reported. Salvador Segovia, who reportedly was looking after the dog on behalf of his 5-year-old grandson, spoke to the outlet. “I kept yelling his name and yelling his name and he wasn’t around,” the 65-year-old grandfather said.
Fortunately, Otis was found by Segovia before his grandchild came back, according to the report.
Otis can go to Dairy Queen and he can get a hamburger. He’s the only dog allowed to lie down in front of the county court house,” Segovia told the website. “He also goes to (the grocery store) H‑E‑B. He’s not a stray. He’s a good dog.”
