Winy Juan Antonio Enriquez, a kind-hearted merchant hailing from Nuevo León, Mexico, has amassed a faithful following in his cozy shop. Yet, there is one patron that stands out as particularly devoted and committed.
Nearly twelve months ago, Enriquez was getting ready to shut down his shop when he spotted a stray dog standing shyly at his entrance. The famished mutt gazed up at Enriquez with imploring eyes, prompting him to provide the dog with some nourishment. Initially, the canine was cautious and suspicious, but he wolfed down the food and vanished into the darkness.
After some time, the hungry stray pooch started showing up at Enriquez’s store every now and then. Every time he appeared, the kind-hearted shopkeeper would greet him with a warm meal, slowly gaining the dog’s confidence. As time passed, Enriquez was able to touch and stroke the animal, eventually dubbing him Carlos.
Carlos has been visiting Enriquez’s store more often lately, actually becoming a daily visitor. He never misses the store’s opening hours in the morning and even returns at night. Although providing Carlos with food may cost Enriquez a considerable amount, he finds it all worth it just by seeing how grateful the dog is for his kind gestures.
