There waiting for him was a cardboard box with a note stuck onto its side. The biggest surprise of all was what was inside: a puppy, abandoned to its fate. The glossy black pooch was sat in the box, vulnerable and scared. Why anyone would have wanted to get rid of such a cutie was a mystery, until the janitor read the note that explained everything.
The note read, “Sorry it didn’t have a home, and it was cold so were going to give it to you. Please do let it go find it a new home. Thank you.” It seemed that someone hadn’t known what to do with the puppy and had left it, hoping that a kind soul would rescue her. The janitor wasted no time in taking steps to ensure the puppy’s safety.
The janitor contacted a teacher at the school straight away, knowing she had a soft spot for dogs. She then came and collected the puppy and took her home. Once she had the puppy back home, she and her boy decided on the puppy’s new moniker: Snowflake. A strange name considering her black, glossy fur, but this was the start of her new life, and now she had a new name to match.
