Thank you for the Valentines

fernando-and-his-valentine-cards-1“I don’t think I’ve ever felt so humbled in my entire life … and I’m an old guy, so that’s saying a lot. I want you to know that I personally read each and every card and letter, and I looked at all the great pictures you sent me of your dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and guinea pigs. I rubbed my face in the furry cards, those were cool! I laughed at the funny cards and I danced to the musical ones. The handmade cards were pretty awesome and creative and I especially loved the card with my picture on it! And then there were so many drawings and so many cards from kids … I loved ’em lots. I’m so touched and honored and all sorts of things. Gosh. Thank you, everybody. I love you very much.” -Fernando

It’s true, Fernando had the BEST TIME EVER reading his Valentine cards … and Cricket, Stella, Riley, Olive and Miss Pickles loved theirs too! Many of you included donations to Harley’s Dream and we are so excited to announce that $8298.25 was raised! WOO HOO!! All that money is being applied to the billboard campaign, Signs from Harley.

Our family (and everyone at Harley’s Dream) thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts. <3
