“Everybody started clapping” ❤️
In Valparaso earlier this week, thousands of people attended the biggest jiujitsu competition in Chile. The goal of the competition was to measure the competitors’ strength, speed, and agility as they battled for first place.
However, it turns out that a cute peacekeeper actually provided the most memorable moment of all.
During one game, an unidentified dog appeared from the sidelines with the intention of stopping what he must have believed to be unchecked violence being committed by spectators.
It’s unclear where the dog had come from, but as he was escorted away by a referee, the crowd was quick to signal their approval of the heartfelt interruption.
Even the fighters the pup had paused couldn’t help but smile.
With that, the competition of brute force and domination took a back seat to something far sweeter — the unabashed affection and care only a good dog can provide.
It’s something spectator Francisca Silueta, who recorded the video above, won’t soon forget.
“Suddenly, all the eyes were staring at this dog, and all the competitors had to stop. Everybody started clapping,” Silueta told . “It was like the dog had won first place.”
