The leanin’ dog

storia_di_un_caneDessa Dean lives with his father in a small house in the mountains, near a forest. The sorrow for the loss of her mother , frozen to death a month earlier, does not allow her to move one step beyond the porch and living with joy and happiness , and causes severe pain in the ears as it exits into the cold winter air . So , the girl spends long days locked within the four walls , doing homework , paying attention to the stove and household chores , while his father is in charge of procuring food for both , hunting , and coming back only in the evening . Until one day , on white snow comes a cinnamon-colored dog , which goes up to the door , scraping to enter. But Dessa Dean opens the door too hard , the dog gets scared and runs away . Since that day the girl goes out every day on the porch to call it , hoping that you come back , it becomes her friend. Why is what they need most , affectionate friendship to help her overcome her nightmares and fears …
