Before reincarnation, the dog’s soul can be free in deserts and plateaus wander around. After reading this story, Enzo said: “They say that not all dogs will be reincarnated, only those who are ready will be. I am ready.” Although Enzo is an ordinary dog, but it is I always hope that when my soul soars, I can become a person who can express my thoughts and do what I want to do.

  When Enzo was young, Eve left it at home for three days. During these three days, Enzo didn’t eat anything, and even had “hallucinations”. It sees Zoey’s favorite zebra toy “self-destructing, ripping out seams after seams and pulling out piles of stuffing until all the hell out of it that made it alive and it’s just a bunch of cloth and stuffing scattered around On the floor. The thing was beating like a heart just taken out of the chest, beating slowly, slower and slower, and then stopped.” This incident makes Enzo feel scared from time to time, because he knows that the zebra toy is by everyone’s side.
  In the eyes of animals, the human world is always complicated. But Enzo was always able to see clearly these troubled world affairs. Enzo is a dog with philosophical thinking.

  After Eve’s death, Danny’s father-in-law (Enzo called them “twins” because they looked like they were carved out of the same mold: the same color hair, always wearing couple clothes, they all have chemistry on their bodies. Taste) and Danny start fighting for custody of Zoey. In their view, Danny’s career is full of dangers and cannot give Zoe a good education and living environment. But Zhuo Yi likes to live with his father and Enzo. The “twins” began to use all means for Zoey’s custody, accusing Danny of sexual assault and other felonies. And Danny, because of the “twins” accusation, can’t go out to compete to make money. In order to deal with this unexpected lawsuit, Danny needs to pay high legal fees, and almost loses his family because of this, and can’t even pay for Enzo’s medical treatment. Danny, who was in a difficult situation, could only compromise with the “twins”. When Danny was about to sign, Enzo saw a zebra on Danny’s pen. Enzo suddenly understood, “It’s because of our own fears, it’s because of our self-destructive tendencies. In our lowest moments, the zebra is the worst part of us. The devil is ourselves”. So, Enzo rushed up and grabbed Danny’s documents and scratched at them. But Danny started laughing so hard that he knelt on the ground laughing until he couldn’t laugh any more. Faced with Enzo’s “disruptive” behavior, Danny did not get angry, but was very happy, because Enzo taught him that “your heart determines what you see”.
  ”Zebra”, the relationship between Danny and Enzo resembles a kind of inner unity in psychology. The devil-like “zebra” can be regarded as Danny’s “id”. As Freud said, “The id is the real psychological reality, which is the inner world that exists before a person comes into contact with the external world.” In the face of a difficult life, Danny even wanted to give up competing with the “twins” for the custody of Zoey. ). The “Id” manages to overwhelm Danny (the “ego”) with its powerful energy and drive. Enzo is Danny’s “superego”, which can correct Danny’s behavior and requires him to reflect on his own heart from time to time. “Your heart determines what you see.” In this matter, Enzo became Danny’s “heart” and helped Danny see what he really needed.

Under Danny’s gentle call, Enzo left, and it might really have gone to the place it longed for, the place where it could be reincarnated as an adult. The arrangement of this part of the novel is very ingenious.
