“You still hanging around the camp, fella?” Jamie bent down to nuzzle the black dog and received a sloppy kiss in return. He stood up. “I’ve got somebody I want you to meet.”

He turned around and pointed to the small boy with his thumb in his mouth who was standing shyly behind him.

“Dog, meet Boy,” Jamie said to the dog. “I’m afraid I don’t know his name either, but you both have a lot in common. You see, this little guy lost his family too and he’s alone, just like you are.”

The dog panted happily. Jamie pointed to the dog. “Dog.”

The boy removed his thumb from his mouth. “Dog,” he repeated.

“That’s right,” Jamie said. He pointed to the dog again. “Dog.” He pointed to himself. “Jamie.” He then pointed to the boy and raised his eyebrows in question.

The little boy smiled and pointed to the dog. “Dog.”

The dog licked the boy’s face, causing him to giggle. “Dog, dog, dog!”

Jamie smiled. “Well, that’s good enough for now.”

  1. This photo prompted quite a few well-written tearjerkers. I’ve only been able to read them a few at a time, as they are quite emotional. Thank you for reading, Teresa!
