Winy Juan Antonio Enriquez, a kind-hearted merchant hailing from Nuevo León, Mexico, has garnered quite the following in his cozy shop. But one patron stands out as particularly devoted and steadfast.
It was almost a year back when Enriquez was ready to shut down his shop for the day, and at that moment, he spotted an abandoned dog standing fearfully outside his door. The dog appeared famished and gazed beseechingly at Enriquez, who decided to give him some food. At first, the dog was hesitant and aloof, but after having his meal, he vanished into the darkness.
After a while, the malnourished stray dog started showing up at Enriquez’s store in an unpredictable manner. Each time he arrived, the kind-hearted shopkeeper would greet him with a warm meal, gradually gaining the dog’s confidence. With time, Enriquez managed to make physical contact with the dog and even gave him the name Carlos.
Carlos has been visiting Enriquez’s store on a daily basis, showing his loyalty and gratitude towards the kind store owner. He comes in every morning when the store opens and even returns at night. While it may cost Enriquez a considerable amount to provide Carlos with food, the sight of the dog’s appreciative response is more than enough to make it all worthwhile for him.
Enriquez may not know where Carlos goes or what he does when he’s not around, but that doesn’t stop him from being happy to take care of the dog and see his tail wag in appreciation. Although he would love to find Carlos a permanent home, Enriquez is more than happy to provide for him in the meantime. He understands that dogs like Carlos are often forgotten and ignored, but he firmly believes that by showing them kindness, they will show profound gratitude in return.
