A homeless man named David and his dog Legacy had walked into a Starbucks, a well-known international coffee chain, but while the man was having a coffee and using the free Wi-Fi the store offers its customers, many other patrons were “uncomfortable” with her presence.
Well, the man was unkempt and dirty, so he and his dog didn’t smell nice. While he drank coffee, his dog slept next to him. That day, Eric Jason Peña, owner of this establishment, entered his business without knowing that something incredible would happen in his life, and that it would change the lives of these two friends.
They wanted this homeless man and his dog to leave the place
Eric posted on his Facebook:
“He told me he had walked 60 miles from Seattle to Tumwater over a period of several days. He praised his dog, who accompanied him the whole way without complaint. As soon as he told Legacy to lay down, he fell asleep. This man was a homeless veteran who, because of his homeless condition, was looked down upon by people.”
Patrons gave David and his dog nasty looks, but some of the children present didn’t share their parents’ displeasure and reached out to Legacy, only to be scolded and pushed away by their parents.
After walking so many miles, David’s shoes were damaged, and when Eric realized this, he decided to help him.
“When I was leaving, I offered him dinner, which he gladly accepted. I remembered that I had new boots in my store and asked him if they would work for them, if he would accept them He said yes. I went to pick them up and he received them with a big smile telling Legacy that they would soon continue their journey.”
The homeless man thanked Eric before leaving.
“We said goodbye with a handshake wishing each other the best. He started his walk, while telling Legacy, “I told you God was going to take care of us.”
Eric thought he would never see this homeless man and his dog again, but then he tracked them down, then Eric started a fundraising campaign to give David and his dog Legacy a roof over their heads, now Eric, David and Legacy are great friends.
