Devil looks on from the mountain top hoping to see his friend Jewel once again. She has gone missing and hasn’t been seen in days. He and Jewel were puppies when they were adopted from the Carson City Shelter. It was then that their young lives were changed forever. For the first time, nights were not so scary and their days were now filled with runs in the park and an abundance of love.

Something didn’t feel right but he couldn’t figure out what it was. He couldn’t remember a time when Jewel wasn’t by his side. Even though they often fought for attention and had food fights they were extremely bonded. He wasn’t sure what he would do if she were to stay away forever. Though, in his heart, he knew he would never see Jewel again. Still, everyday he stood in the same spot, watching and hoping she would come running back to him.
