Holiday season sparkles for young animal rescuer

Readers have been emailing me wanting to hear more from girl rescuer Calli Vanderaa. Here’s her latest letter to all those who gave from their heart to hers:

Hi Carreen and everyone else. My name is Calli and you know my puppy Jessie. I just would like to say thank you to everyone who sent such nice gifts for Jessie and I. My daddy and I got to spend a lot of time together...that was really cool. I really like the Modern Dog magazine and plan on reading it as much as I can.

It’s clear that Calli is grateful for the acts of kindness bestowed upon her by strangers touched by her story. The gift avalanche from people around the continent was impressive.
For my part, I must admit I’m pleased that she’s reading Modern Dog magazine. Shameless self-promoting, I know. But I’m wondering if maybe Calli might become an animal rescuer and writer after all?

To reference the original story about Calli, go to Girl rescues tortured puppy from inner city war zone, Dec. 14, 2008. Several follow-ups have also been posted in the meantime.
