Two neighbors had nothing in common, so they never greeted each other.  But they both liked to watch the old man and his dog.  One day the dog was lost and they each noticed how sad the old man was.  They searched high and low for the dog, first separately, then together.   Together, they found the dog and returned him to the old man, who was so happy to see him.  The neighbors were happy too, because they discovered they had a lot in common.  Luyken also wrote and illustrated MY HEART, which is a similar story of character accompanied by gentle images.
