Teddy’s Birthday Wish!

Today is a really BIG day for me! It’s my 13th birthday!! That’s right, I was born on Sept 7, 2005. I lived 7 years in a puppy mill cage and have now lived 6 years in freedom!

As you may know, this has been a pretty tough summer for me and we took everything one day at a time. There were days Mom worried whether I would make it to see this birthday, but with great medical care and your love and prayers, I’m doing well right now and I’m ready to celebrate! Mom asked me what I want to do for my special day – – well you KNOW it will include lots of belly rubs (for sure), maybe a trip to the Golden Arches (ha ha), spending time with my family, and some other fun things!

But I do want this special birthday to have meaning and to honor my best buddy, Harley, too. So, I would love to hear from you! If you’d like, please send a Birthday card (and if you’re able, enclose $1.00 for Harley’s Dream) to:

c/o Harley’s Dream
PO Box 64
Berthoud, CO 80513

All the money raised in honor of my 13th Birthday will go to Harley’s Dream to help put an end to puppy mills! Thanks so much for your birthday wishes and for helping us carry on Harley’s mission!

Love, Teddy
