When you look at Lollie’s pictures with Santa from this weekend’s MCHS fundraising event, you may think: this could not possibly get any better. But we assure you, it can.
Of course it is hard to see past her clear gaze, her comfortable stance, and her coyly tilted head– first right, then left . . . but look a little closer. That dashing, realistic, fabulous Santa is not just any Santa. He is Lollie’s best friend from the shelter- her key champion, and the main reason that we ended up fostering her. If you work really hard at it, you may recognize Dave from one of our first posts, when we went to pick the little girl up at the shelter.
So in a way, Santa already granted Lolita an advance Christmas wish—to go from bruised, starved, filthy stray dog found in a dumpster to spoiled, shiny-coated, well-fed house pet.
But she still has a much more important wish, and she asked Santa for it on Saturday: a forever-home and forever-family where she will be loved and appreciated for years and years to come. Could you make her wish come true?
