The cold weather didn’t stop Ryan from walking Sparky around the neighborhood for the last time.

A big promotion caused his dad to move the family to another state.

For a moment, Ryan and Sparky enjoyed watching early snowflakes fall softly on tree branches. Then, it was time to go.

“Dad, can I take Sparky with me?” he asked.

“Sorry, son, there’s no room in the van.”

“But, dad,” he protested with Sparky staring helplessly by his side.

“Don’t worry, I’ll pick him up along with the rest of the stuff later. In the meantime, he stays with your grandma.

It turned out to be one of the hottest days of summer.

Earlier in the morning, Ryan tried to teach Sparky new tricks, but all the dog wanted was to play. In frustration, he locked him in the abandoned outhouse and went fishing.

While eating lunch, he thought of Sparky with whom he usually shared his sandwich. Suddenly, he realized the dog was in danger from the blistering heat.

Ryan rushed home to save Sparky, but it was too late. His mom had already freed him.

“So sorry, Sparky,” he told the dog who welcomed him, enthusiastically wagging his tail.
