Christine Allen's son Sam turned four fingers old on Tuesday. We've had the pleasure of watching him grow from a babe to a boy with a special connection with dogs, starting with his love for homegirl Izzy, then later as one of V-dog Teddle's very first and bestest friends.
Sam's been such a true heart to the dogs, so we weren't surprised when we heard he was already giving healing hugs to newcomer Huckleberry. Happy Birthday Sam - and thank you. The world has so much to learn from your tender example.
