Choco's Birthday Celebration
It’s celebration day today at Whitetail Lodge! Our dog, Choco, turns seven today.
Choco has become a fixture at Whitetail Lodge for families who have come for counseling and support. Children, in particular, find Choco entertaining and a source of comfort while they are here. Every morning he greets our guests with his wagging tail and “smile.” And if guests allow, he often feels obliged to lick faces. He is also notorious for cleaning up any dropped food items around the table.
What many people don’t know is that Choco was actually donated to Smile Again Ministries for this particular ministry. He often opens the door into the hearts and thoughts of children as they express their feelings with him and us. He’s quite the little ambassador for SAM.
As I write Choco is doing what he does best, sleeping on our couch. Birthdays can be such exhausting events.
