Elisa Lee is a senior at Lakewood HighSchool in California. She has a very loyal friend on her way to school. Every morning, Ralph, a cute Golden Retriever, always sticks his nose under the gate for Elisa to pet him.
According to Elisa, she was afraid at first because most dogs would bite or be aggressive at you if you came near their home, but Ralph kept waiting and waiting under the gate.
One day, Elisa had the courage to pet Ralph. “The first time I had pet him he was so excited and started licking my hand and pawing at it,” she said. “Ever since then I would go after school towards the spot where he lives in to pet him and usually always find him there waiting for me.”
At one time, Elisa had a 4 day weekend and Ralph was upset because he hadn’t seen Elisa for 4 days! 😀

Aaaww….he looks really sad….Ralph is missing his friend…..
Many times, Ralph looks sad when Elisa has to go. But she assures him that she’ll be back to pet him.
In an afternoon, Elisa saw a man walking his Golden Retriever in the neighborhood and she was wondering if that was her canine friend. The owner confirmed that it was Ralph. She said the owner told him Ralph was a one-year-old puppy.
Elisa told the owner she’d been petting Ralph from under the gate and taking pictures of him. Social media took notice of their relationship and now Ralph is famous!
Elisa is documenting her friendship with Ralph and her tweets have been retweeted more than 12,000 times! She never thought her story with Ralph the dog would go viral like this.
This is why I think dog is truly our best friend and we actually don’t deserve dogs 🙂
