‘Angel’ visits children at Ronald McDonald House

15 Mar

On Thursday a furry little ball of love, named Angel, visited with children at Seattle’s Ronald McDonald House. But instead of wing, this angel had a wagging tail.

The pup brought smiles to children at the Ronald McDonald House courtesy of David Frei and his Angel on a Leash therapy dogs program. Frei, also known as the voice of Westminster, is in town in advance of the weekend Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show at CenturyLink Field Events Center.

Angel paid a visit to Josiely Vlach, 2, who has been staying at the facility for one year with her family. She went through a liver transplant one year ago and was later diagnosed with leukemia.

The little furball, a certified therapy dog, also visited with Hunter Lankford, 14, of Stanwood. Hunter is also batting leukemia and staying with family at the facility.

The Ronald McDonald House is a charitable organization that provides a home for children and their families during treatment for serious illnesses at nearby hospitals.

The Seattle Dog show is Saturday and Sunday. You can find more on the event here.
