The story of "I'll Always Love You" revolves around a boy and a dog. They enjoy their quiet time together, but a dog's life is short and the boy watched his dog, Elfie, grow old day by day, without being able to do anything about it. All he can do is to accompany Elfie faithfully. Fortunately, the boy always remembers to say "I love you forever" to Elfie every night before going to bed. This sentence would stay in Elfie's heart forever. Elfie eventually passed quietly with the boy's love in its heart, and because the boy always showed his love to his dog, he eventually came to accept Elfie's old age and death.
