Scholarship Winner

Jessica is the winner of the Havahart® Wireless Spring 2016 $500 Scholarship Contest!

Here’s Jessica’s winning essay which answers the following question:

“Some say dogs have qualities, such as loyalty, that are much stronger than most people are capable of having. What is a positive quality of your pet that you would like to have more of?”

 

I have missed him more than one can possibly imagine. It has been a whole school semester that we have been apart. If it was anyone else in the whole world I would be afraid to return; afraid that they would be angry at me for abandoning them without visiting or calling. Not him, though.
