"Death of a fit dog" is an independent short story centered in the main character of the series of comic-strips titled "Scenes of a fit dog" by Guspirallampec. It was inspired by a real life experience occurred to the author on the 26th of July of 2016 when he went hiking completely unprepared, got lost several times trying to reach a lake called Estany de l'Illa in Encamp (Andorra) and, eventually, overwhelmed by fatigue, sunburn, thirst, disorientation, storm thunders in the distance and abundant insect bites, decided to dial the emergency number and ask for help, just to be rescued by helicopter. The guy survived, his ego was killed out of utter embarrassment. Being fit doesn't mean being ready, but the Fit Dog is, isn't he?
