Marine veteran, Peter Coukoulis has struggled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder since returning home three years ago. After losing his beagle while out on deployment five years ago, the sight of a new beagle puppy brought him to tears. You deserve this Peter. Thank you for your service and Merry Christmas!

This is proof that persistence pays off because 11-year-old Colton has been asking for a puppy for quite some time now. Thanks to the "Elf on the Shelf" this kid got his gift a little early. After searching high and low for the elf, Colton found him in the Christmas tree, note in hand. That note was a clue to what might be inside the box beneath the tree. Colton opens the box to find a toy Yorkie, who he names Bear. Wishes do come true!
