I could not locate any of our ex-neghbours.
As we were about to turn back, a stray dog rushed towards me. Tail wagging and whining in excitement, it began to paw all over me. I recognized it as the older version of one of the dogs I used to feed.
My childless wife petted it.
“Let’s adopt it,” she suggested.
She wanted to give it a house and love. I had no objection.
