CAPE TOWN: Two little boys who lost everything in a fire two weeks ago, scraped together their last R7 to save the life of their neighbour’s dog. The barefoot brothers then walked for several kilometres across farms to the Animal Welfare Society in Philippi.

Peter, 14, and his little brother Gerry Cedras, 8, live on the Groenvlei Farm in Philippi with their parents Jerome Spyer and Henna Cedras, 36.

On Wednesday, Peter and Gerry were asked by their neighbour Julia Julie, 60, to take her dog Lady to the AWS because the pet was not eating. She gave Peter R5 for food for the two of them. Peter originally intended to keep the money, along with R2 he’d gotten from a cousin, as he was saving to buy his brother a pair of shoes.
