Happy Birthday to Peggy Flemmer!

We love our Jake so much, he is the best dog. He loved us from the first day. He always wants to snuggle. Jake loves to ride in the car with us and go on trips. Jake is an older dog and our mom told us he had to have lots of tests and teeth pulled before he came to us. We want more labs to find families and have a happy life like Jake. Hopefully this money will help more labs.

~Love, Delaney and Amelia Erb
