    Volunteer of the Year has 4 legs

    in Lifestyle

     


    Molly has just hit a milestone  as a volunteer, where she  officially passed her  300th visit as a therapuetic assistant, and no one is prouder of her than her  papa, retired Army vet Ron Leonard. Molly is a real people pleaser, and wherever she goes she brings along peace, comfort and lots of smiles.


    For the past two years, Molly frequented the Donaldson's Assisted living facility where she was honored recently as volunteer of the year! She also visits a few other seniors homes and everyone looks forward to her visits.
    Molly also visit MEPS with Ron, where they go to be with the men and women entering military service and their families in cooperation with the USO. Last summer Molly was involved with Camp Progress (YMCA) and was a hit among the mentally challenged children.She is really one busy lady who deserves some recognition for all the hard work she is putting in helping others.


    In fact, Molly is also assisting the Murfreesboro DA's office in some domestic violence cases. Who is this lady with the big heart?


    When Molly was 6 weeks old, she was rescued by  Ron and his wife and when she turned 2, she started her basic training through Petco. From there, she graduated and went on to be trained as a Therapy dog by Canines for Christ. Today, as a result of her milestone, she will receive advance certification from the American Kennel Club.


    God Bless Miss Molly!!!

    Really? You cut a f'ing fire hose after looters set a store on fire, you do it live on TV and do it again.

    Don't mess with mom!


     


    The teenage boy publicly shamed when his mom smacked him around at the Baltimore riots this week said he knows she "really cares about me."


    A video shows Michael Singleton being dragged from the protests and whacked by his mother, Toya Graham, after she saw him on television and recognized a key piece of clothing.


    "What caught my eye was his sweatpants," she told ABC News. "Even though he had on all black, I knew those sweatpants he had on, they had a stripe on the side of it and then his eye contact met mine. And I knew that was my son."
