I am pleased to announce, that we had numerous essays that were judged on November 5, 2018, by Mary Balog from Bainbridge Library, Jesse Huge from Burton Library, Christine Peace from Chardon Library, myself Auditor Chuck Walder, Deputy Auditor Mary Beth Armao, and Administrative Assistant Pamela McMahan.
The judging was difficult, but we were able to find the one essay that conveyed the loyalty and love we were looking for in the Number One Dog in Geauga County. I presented the Number One dog tag for Geauga County to Notre Dame Elementary School’s fourth-grader, Olivia Caschera, and her dog S’mores.
“My Three – Legged S’mores
Hi I’m Olivia, and I’m going to be telling you about my dog, S’mores.
S’mores was a stray dog rooming the towns of Ohio living a happy and stressful life. Until one day S’mores came across a road, now S’mores didn’t know that was a road but he still tried to go across it. Boom!!! (S’mores got hit) The person that hit him called the vet. The vet came to bring him back to the shelter. They took some tests and they found out that his leg had to be amputated!!! So they did, but that wasn’t the only the only problem, the vet still needed to find his owner!!! They called everybody in the area but no owner to be found. After a whole week, still no owner to be found. So the head vet had to give S’mores to ”Mutts In A Rut Rescue.” Now, our old dog had just died. So we got guinea pigs first, then we heard about this dog, S’mores, that we decided to foster. My family and I went to go meet him and he was the perfect fit. So one week later we did it, we started fostering S’mores!!! Then only one month later a family wanted him!!! So we had to make a decision, ether to keep S’mores, or to keep fostering. My mom and my brother wanted to keep fostering, but me and my dad wanted to keep him. After a day we decided to keep him!!! He is an awesome dog because he can show you even though you may be a little different, you can still achieve anything!!! S’mores is 1.5 years old and he still can jump, run, and do SOOO many tricks. He is on his way to becoming a therapy dog as well. It’s like S’mores doesn’t even know he has three legs!!!
Hope you enjoyed this paragraph about my three legged dog, S’mores. Bye!!!”
