What's Your Next-Door Neighbor Story?

lost friend

I used to walk at night times in our street and I always saw one man who walked with his cute puppy. They were playing while walk in street light. It was so funny. I was saying hello to him many times when we crossed streets but one day when I walked I saw puppy was running fast on the curb and some people try to catch him up. I am scared because that guy disappear and with that people. I tried to search what’s going on. I followed that people and finally they did catch puppy and brought with them. I yelled them and asked them why are you stealing someone’s puppy and they said we are not stealing puppy but puppy guy died yesterday due to heart attack and we bring his puppy in his funeral. They told me puppy was crying all day and all night. I shocked, because he was so younger but this is the life …….next day I went to that guys home and I saw puppy was still crying and sad because he lost his friend……..
