After seeing one person’s betrayal, we often instinctively assume that everyone other will do the same. However, no one can draw broad conclusions about their whole lives based on a single incident or lose faith in others. Our history confirms that life frequently provides a second opportunity.
The dog lived on the street; she has already lost track of how she came to be there or whether she had a previous existence, and she hopes and thinks that she will be able to find a new home.
Katya and her husband went shopping and returned home tired after their long hunt for what they needed. When Alexei suddenly pressed the brakes, the pair talked about their future plans and chuckled at jokes that only they could know.
The dog had just leaped out from under the car, and the man had only spotted it at the last possible minute. The animal was unharmed, but it remained on the road and froze a few millimeters from the hood. The pair stepped out of the car and examined the dog carefully. At first sight, it was obvious that the dog was homeless and in need of a home and care.
Katya and her husband did not abandon the animal to its fate, but instead brought it to the vet. The animal turned out to be healthy; it had just recently entered the street and had not yet developed the habit of living alone. The doctor volunteered to take the dog to a shelter since he required medical attention. Katya and Aleksey declined the offer and decided to care for the puppy themselves. As a result of the dog’s faith in humanity, he was given a second opportunity at a happy life with a loving family.
