They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, and for one dog the target of his affection was just a few jumps away.
Distance – and two glass windows – separated him from the one he so desired.
The story of this love-struck dog was shared by his owner on social media.
The dog had a daily routine of staring out the apartment window. Curious, the owner glanced out the window and across the way at the object of her dog’s affection.
It was a cat, lounging in the window sill of the apartment opposite hers.
Under more classic circumstances, her dog would be barking up a storm at that ‘ole cat across the way.
Not her dog. He sat quietly, looking love-struck.
She thought it adorable, and her dog continued his daily routine for six months.
Then, unexpectedly, the object of the dog’s affection was replaced – with houseplants.
Her dog was obviously saddened, and three times a day he would look out the window and be disappointed.
She took action and posted this note in her own window for the neighbor to hopefully see:
“Dear Neighbor –
“This is going to seem ridiculous, but I thought you should know that my dog (who lives next door with me) is madly in love with your cat … and has been for probably 6 months! Three times a day, he puts his paws on our railing to look at him/her in your windowsill. Now that you have potted plants there, he is heartbroken … but he keeps looking for your cat every time. Maybe your plants could switch to a different window??!
“From, Your neighbor & her adoring dog!”
Not long after, they had their reply.
“For True Love,” said the note in the cat’s window.
The plants were gone and there was space for the cat to lounge. Her dog once again had a great view of the object of his affection.
When love is in the air, even the strangest of pairs can make love work at a distance.
