A New Plan
With feelings of sadness and disbelief, the man read every sentence carefully. He was done with the last two weeks, which had been torture. He believed that the choices he made would be the best for both of them. As soon as he found the letter, and realized what was truly going on, everything was different. He understood that he couldn't continue with his plan, but he didn't exactly have a different one. He had no clue on how to handle things, but then he spoke one word that gave him the answer he was looking for.
There's A New Guy
If he never would have moved to a new town, he never would have received the letter. The man, who we can call Anthony, was forced to relocate because he was offered a new job. Fortunately, his new job was located in a small college town that really looked like a nice place to live. Everyone was warm and friendly. People he met would wave to him when they saw him around town. But something was still missing from his life.
A Bit Of Loneliness

Even though Anthony had a good job and a nice house in a friendly neighborhood, he was struggling with adjusting to his life. He began to feel lonely, and seemed to be having a pretty rough time meeting new people to become friends with. He knew that things needed to change, so he decided that getting a pet might help. Not only would it keep him company at home, it could also help him socialize with other people in town. He went to the local shelter and he was told that they had the perfect dog for him.
A New Pup
Anthony was introduced to a six-year-old black Labrador named Reggie. The shelter advertised that Reggie was up for adoption, and people had gone to the shelter to express interest in him, but the shelter turned them away because they "didn’t look like Lab people." But Anthony was different. The shelter believed that Anthony and Reggie would be a great match. He trusted their judgment and brought Reggie home. But it didn't take long for Anthony to feel like they were wrong.

As soon as the adoption was finalized, Anthony was given Reggie's things: food and water bowls, a dog pad, a bag of toys – which mostly consisted of tennis balls – and a letter from his former family. He brought Reggie home and Anthony placed his belongings next to the unpacked boxes. Anthony figured he could find a place for everything a bit later, but first, it was time for Anthony and Reggie to get to know each other.
