OCTOBER PUPPY PIN UP - FAITH
Faith is a six month old puppy in training and is being raised by Elaine Randall and her family in Pukalani. Faith is the twentieth puppy Elaine has raised for ADH! Elaine takes her to work every day and even takes her golfing on the weekends! Faith sits in the golf cart and practices her self restraint each time Elaine hits the golf ball! "Faith is such a good girl" says Elaine. "She is so well behaved and everyone loves her. I know she is going to make a big difference in someone's life one day."
"I find that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent, devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source." Doris Day
