Winy Juan Antonio Enriquez, an empathetic merchant hailing from Nuevo León, Mexico, has established a strong following of patrons in his humble shop. Nevertheless, there is one particular customer who stands out as the most devoted and dependable of the bunch.
Around 12 months ago, when Enriquez was getting ready to shut down his business for the day, he spotted a homeless pooch timidly staring at his door. With a pitiful gaze, the famished pup begged Enriquez for food. Moved by the dog’s plight, Enriquez decided to offer him some nourishment. At first, the dog was reluctant and skeptical, but he eventually wolfed down the meal and vanished into the darkness.
After some time, the hungry and homeless dog started showing up at Enriquez’s store regularly. The kind-hearted shopkeeper would always offer him food and treat him with affection, gradually building a bond of trust. As time passed by, Enriquez even managed to touch and stroke the dog, affectionately naming him Carlos.
Carlos has made it a routine to go to Enriquez’s store every day, showing his loyalty and appreciation for the kindness shown to him. He visits the store in the morning and returns at night, making it a daily occurrence. Despite the potential cost of providing Carlos with food, Enriquez finds joy in seeing the grateful reaction of the dog and believes that it makes everything worthwhile.
Enriquez is not entirely sure about Carlos’s location and what he’s up to in between his visits, but he takes pleasure in taking care of him and seeing him wag his tail in gratitude. He aspires to find Carlos a forever home, but he’s more than happy to meet his needs in the meantime. Enriquez acknowledges that dogs like Carlos are often disregarded and abandoned, but he genuinely believes that showing kindness towards them results in deep appreciation.
