Miracles do happen. For Isla Kerr, she gets to experience her first miracle at the tender age of seven. After she lost her blind dog earlier this month, a letter to Santa allowed her to find her beloved pet.
Isla was really worried when her blind Boston terrier named Dolly went missing in West Yorkshire, England. According to NY Daily News, knowing that her the puppy needs special attention and care because of her condition, Isla could not think about anything else but to find her dog. She got so worried that she was willing to forgo all her possible Christmas presents from Santa Claus just to get her dog back. She expressed all these in a heartfelt letter to St. Nick.
Isla told her mom Vanessa Meskimmon that she believes Santa can do anything this Christmas so she wrote a letter asking him to give a reunion with her dog as her sole Christmas gift. "Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is my dog to come back," Isla's note to Santa reads. "I do not care about presents, all I care about is my dog Dolly to comeback. I miss her so much and love her," the young girl continued.
Isla's family shared the distraught kid's daughter online and put up missing posters around their hometown. Santa must have read Isla's plea and a miracle took place just five days later. Dolly was spotted in a park and returned to the family. The man who found Dolly saw the appeal to locate the dog and called Vanessa. When the man took the pup to the family's residence, Isla's father was confirmed the dog was indeed Dolly.
The mother claimed that her daughter could not be any more ecstatic. She added that even though Dolly is blind, she recognizes them as her family. "Dolly can't see us but she knows who we are, she knows she's home and it's so lovely. She is part of our family. We can't stop cuddling her, we're so pleased to have her back," Vanessa shared to Mirror Online. The mom added that Isla was so happy to get her pet back that she did not sleep much and just would not Dolly go anywhere out of her sight.
Funnily, now that Dolly returned to the arms of little Isla, the girl was quick to remind Santa of her original Christmas wish list, containing every little girl's favorites - Barbie house, Heelies roller shoes, and a Reborn newborn doll.
This is not the first news of Santa making little children really happy this year. Cleveland Centre Santa also made waves days ago when he made a deaf child beam from ear to ear by conversing to her in sign language. A Cleveland Centre spokesman told the Gazette that, "We believe the Cleveland Centre Santa is real and this truly shows the magic and spirit of Christmas, just like Miracle on 34th Street."
