I’m guessing I was about 10 years old. My brother Frank and I rode with our Aunt Ann to visit. I was there when one of Eloise ‘s dogs was having puppies. It was the most fascinating thing I have ever seen. Eloise explained everything as it was happening and taught me a lot about her passion for animals. She gifted it to me. I still carry that love with me today. Aunt Eloise was truly special and I know she was blessed.
