It is normal to receive and give gifts over the holidays, but the greatest present someone can get is excellent company. Carter Licata and his dog, Piper, illustrate this to us.
It’s difficult to describe Carter’s bond with his dog Piper. That bond is greater than anything else. Carter’s mother, April, claims that love grew as soon as they saw each other.
But things changed one day when the dog they disappeared. They looked for him everywhere but couldn’t find him.
Piper was frequently mentioned in the family’s prayers, in the hopes that he would be able to return home soon. However, as the days passed, they began to lose hope in his return.
They were all unwell in some way and lacked motivation to do anything.
However, Licata soon receives a message from the Genesee County Animal Shelter.
When a dog that looked like Piper was discovered, he was taken to a shelter. April and her husband then went out to supper, and they were overjoyed; they couldn’t believe it. Licata had planned a great surprise for Carter, who was not in town at the time.
She accompanied him to see Carter, who was still in school at the time. Carter burst into tears the minute Piper and Carter locked eyes.
Piper was also smiling, and he was wagging her tail rapidly. When Carter first walked in, he couldn’t stop kissing him and standing by his side.
Everyone was happy that Piper was reunited with his family during the most ideal time of the year, Christmas. Carter and Piper have much too much love for one other, yet they are reunited once more.
