So here I am, preparing for Woofstock and suddenly...a newly turned
6-year-old, freckle faced boy comes into my life with a smile as contagious as his love for dogs! After what Leo did
for our homeless howlers, he just had to become our
Honorary "Kid of the Month!"
As I mentioned, Leo just celebrated
his 6th birthday. His mom threw him a great birthday party last weekend. But there was something extra special about this
birthday party. Leo and his family decided to ask Leo's guests to make donations to our rescue beagles in his honour. Of course,
Leo scored some gifts too. How could they not want to make those eyes pop with surprise?!!
Leo has some very nice friends.
I would imagine they learned that from their parents.
On Monday evening, Leo and his family came to visit me and my beagles. Leo
and his big brother, Ben, had a ball meeting the dogs. By the end of their visit, they were all the best of friends. That
tends to happen when there's so much love in a room.
I won't ever forget how proud Leo was to hand me his envelope filled with
donations. Leo and his wonderful family raised $570 for our beagles! I was ready to cry but like I said, Leo's smile is contagious.
