While competing in the Constalica Raylle Vouzela, a race in Portugal, race car driver Carlos Matos gave up any chance of winning the race in order to save a pup.
According to The Dodo, Matos was approaching a corner at 90 mph when all of a sudden, he saw a dog who had somehow wandered onto the course. Matos quickly slammed on his brakes and spun the car to a halt in the nick of time and thankfully the dog escaped unharmed.
Though Matos lost the race that day because of his actions, he wouldn't change a thing. "The dog was not very big, but in this life not everything of value is. Those who know me know I have great admiration for animals," Matos, who has five dogs himself, told the race's organizers. "If it happened again today, I would do the exact same thing."

Tesla is releasing a new feature called "Dog Mode" that will aim to keep pets safe, cool and comfortable while left unattended in the vehicle.
The electric car maker introduced "Dog Mode" via Twitter Wednesday night. Tesla says that activating "Dog Mode" results in "setting a cabin temperature to keep your dog comfortable while letting passersby know they don't need to worry."
The average dog spends a whopping 14 hours per day sleeping. In fact, dogs spend more than half their lives dozing off. As a pet owner, it's important to give your dog a comfortable bed of their own where they can sleep at night and nap throughout the day. And one of the most comfortable beds you can get your furry friend is a memory foam orthopedic dog bed.
