    As the article suggests, "This year I resolve to make a positive impact in the lives of others!". I just had to write it down to make it official. Thank you Emma.

      Wow, that's such a great thing to do! What organization is it through?

        We have three beagles and we've signed u through local SPCA and BREW (beagle rescue from labs and other places).
