Eight years ago, Elsie Hatcher’s son, Mark, and his family gave her a Golden Retriever puppy as a Christmas gift.
“It was such a surprise,” Hatcher said.
The puppy — Hatcher named her Honey Bee — was the last of her litter and Hatcher said her daughter-in-law chose that particular puppy because the way she sat made her look regal. Hatcher said Honey Bee is very good with her grandson and gets excited when he comes over. The boy plays with her.
