Showing compassion for one another is an important part of being human, especially when you know exactly what the other person is going through. If you are lucky enough to overcome toughest challenges and obstacles life throws at you, you should be able to understand and help out those that are currently dealing with the same struggles.

Unfortunately, not everyone remembers they were also in need of understanding once, or that they may be. Most people simply move on with their lives. A dog named Lana reminded us exactly what it means to be truly compassionate and we couldn't be prouder of her.

Lana, a rescue dog, knew what it felt like to be homeless because, for a long time, she was roaming the streets of Ivoti, Brazil, with no place to call home and no one to show her the love she craved.

She braved the cold and hot weather and was simply focused on surviving. Everything changed for the better when she was rescued by a Brazilian journalist and big-time animal lover, Suelen Schaumloeffel.

Lana found a happy home in Suelen's arms and house. The dog's dark days seemed to be behind her now.

But that did not mean she forgot about her four-legged friends who were not as fortunate.

Last year, Suelen was about to leave home for work on a cold winter morning when she noticed something that left her speechless.

The night before. she had given her dog a cosy blanket to keep her warm through the night. So, that morning, Suelen was surprised to see that Lana, instead of choosing to enjoy her warm present alone, had dragged the blanket to the fence and shared it with a street dog on the other side.

Suelen took a picture of the moment and shared it on her Facebook page:

Seeing the friend without a home and cold, Lana did not hesitate to share the blanket.

Lana made her owner proud that day. And not only that: The dog's kindness inspired thousands of people.

The lesson was loud and clear: .Just because you have managed to leave a difficult past behind, it does not mean you should be blind to those who are still trying to find their way out.
