A Hurricane Katrina Story
This is Adrien Bonin,
John's eldest daughter, and her beloved dog, Billie. Adrien and
Billie came to the rescue of a little boy named Cody whose family lost everything as a
result of Hurricane Katrina. One thing the family still had was
Cody's dog. While they were stopped in Lafayette, Cody's dog
chased a ball into the street and was killed by a car. John
Bonin answered the call about the dog, and spoke to the parents and the
ten year old boy, who was in tears about his dog.
John found out that the boy
had always wanted a lab, and told the family that he had just the
special little dog that needed a special little boy. After the
family got settled, and they came to Bonin Boarding and and Adrien
introduced Cody to Billie. It was really a match made in heaven.
Adrien gave Cody his handlers course, showing him what he needed
to do on his obedience and retriever drills. The smile on Cody's face
while working Billie was priceless. Cody and his family now live in
Houma and are doing very well. They are very grateful that
Adrien made Cody's dream come true. He may have lost his home and his
dog, but now he has Billie and that made everything all right.
