Roy, a dog with a heart full of loyalty, found himself abandoned and drenched in a parking lot, his eyes searching the distance for the family that left him behind. Unwilling to move from the spot, he clung to the hope that his owners would return. A compassionate woman, alerted to Roy’s plight, hurried to the scene. Her heart sank upon discovering him sitting forlornly in the rain. Despite being soaked, Roy seemed indifferent to his own discomfort. His thoughts were fixated on the return of his beloved owners.


The woman gently coaxed Roy into her car, though he continued to gaze out of the window, unable to accept that he had been left behind. She drove him to the vet for a thorough examination, where it was discovered that Roy had sustained injuries to his front paws, necessitating a stay at the clinic for treatment.

During his recovery, Roy charmed everyone with his endearing personality and warm smile. He was naturally trusting and relished the company of humans. Once his paws healed, Roy was discharged from the clinic and moved in with the woman who rescued him. She grew to love him deeply and hoped to adopt him permanently, but Roy struggled to let go of the memory of his previous family, often becoming visibly distressed at night.


One evening, Roy developed a fever and lost his appetite, prompting his worried mom to rush him back to the vet. As they traveled, Roy lay in her lap, and she comforted him with gentle strokes, reassuring him of her presence. Sensing her concern, Roy looked into her eyes and wagged his tail as if to offer her comfort in return.


At the hospital, the vet managed to reduce Roy’s fever, and he began to eat again. Soon after, he returned home, where he was showered with affection. His new mom frequently kissed his nose, a gesture Roy adored. Gradually, the memories of his former owners began to fade. Roy found joy in the love and security of his new home, reveling in games and runs in the yard. His happiness was evident, and his face was always alight with a joyful glow. His family cherished him deeply, feeling fortunate to have him in their lives.
