The grocery store where I work as a security guard has a very good team. The staff quickly became friends, I enjoy going to work and this is where I spend most of my time, returning home only to relax. Once, a pet appeared at our work, which also became part of the team and received the name Druzhok.
The dog began to appear every evening at the store and stand at the glass doors. The manager forbade the animal to enter, so we, as a whole team, began to bring treats to the dog outside. Every day the dog came and patiently waited for one of the workers to come out to him and take out treats. The dog gladly accepted the food, but sadness and the hope that someone would want to give him a house were read in his eyes.
No one could pick it up, including me, because I spent all my day at work. The dog needs to devote time, walk with it, but I simply could not do this. I am at home only after eight in the evening, all the time before going to bed I take up household chores.
It took a very long time to find a host for Druzhka, but he was lucky. One of my acquaintances quite unexpectedly wanted to get a dog and agreed to take Druzhok. I have known this man for many years and I was sure that he would treat the dog well. Now Druzhok has an owner, a warm home and the care that he needed so much.
I am pleased to think that I was able to help both a homeless dog and my friend. Good deeds do not require much strength, but they give joy, which is the best reward.
