This is such a sweet book about an elderly woman and her wariness about letting anyone or anything into her life until a sweet little dog shows up at her gate one day. It comes to her gate every day and every day she feeds it and tells it to go home and then one day the dog doesn’t show up nor does it show up the next day. The dog’s sudden absence helps her to realize how much she loves the cute pup and how much she does want him to stick around and not go home. This story has a sweet and happy ending that will warm your heart.
