No amount of compensation can make up for the pain you've caused me.

A covetous family dog found his envy of the family baby's treasures too much to contain, and he succumbed, taking one of the baby's toys in his mouth and scurrilously stowing it away for his own enjoyment. 

The baby cried.

The dog felt that cry in his heart, and he understood that he caused far greater pain by taking the baby's toy than he ever felt in wishing the toy could be his. The dog could not enjoy his stolen goods, not while knowing its price, so he proceeded to do what he could, whatever he could, to make things right.
