The man has finally settled in his new city, but something is still missing in his life. He thought he could help find a companion in the form of a shelter dog. So he did just that. He went to a shelter where a black lab named Reggie needed a home. But they did not get along right away.
The man gave it two weeks (the amount of time the shelter said it would take for the dog to adjust to its new home), but it just didn’t work. Perhaps the fact is that he was also trying to adapt to the new situation. Maybe they were too similar. But then the man started going through Reggie’s things, and then he was reminded of the letter the previous owner had left with the dog. This would radically change their lives.
