An elderly man watched as each of his children grew up and left him to lead their own lives. It was a bittersweet scenario, but now the man was left to tend to the farm all by himself. Loneliness set in and his days became painfully isolating. He wished for a companion to keep him company. Fate intervened when the elderly gentleman was riding his tractor. He heard a whimper and then saw a small puppy, dirty and helpless, all by his lonesome in need of a helping hand. The man scooped him up and held him tight. The pup was relieved to be found.

The man’s kind heart welled up with compassion. Although the pup’s story was tragic, the man knew the dog was placed there just for him. He vowed to care for him and brought him inside the house. After a warm bath and a full meal, the pup felt much better.

As days went on, the puppy’s health improved. He became healthy and strong. But then the man realized the dog was growing at a rapid rate. He went from being a small puppy to something else entirely! His massive size alarmed the man, so he took him to the nearby vet. The vet, also surprised by the dog’s colossal size, ran some tests.

When the tests came back, the vet called the man and explained that he had a genetic mutation but was otherwise healthy. The man was relieved, and he and the pup continued to live their lives together, tending the fields and making memories.
