Photographer Rebecca Leimbach is continually documenting the wonderful relationship between her daughter, Harper, and their English Bulldog, Lola, as they both grow older together, sharing a uniquely beautiful bond.

They have a funny bond. Harper loves Lola immensely, except when Lola eats her toys, which happens quite often. Lola is very protective of Harper, she is always in Harper's business. Whatever Harper is doing, Lola must investigate to make sure it's kosher…I hope that people see what wonderfully amazing animals dogs are, and how their connection with people shape our lives. Like Harper, for example, she's never bored with Lola around…When Harper looks back at her childhood through these images, she will remember 'my first best friend' Lola. I hope people take away from the images that sometimes without us even realizing it, dogs fill an empty space in our hearts.

Kids Read to Cats With the "Book Buddies Program"

The Animal rescue Leage (ARL) of Berks Counthy, PA have started the "Book Buddies" program that brings children together with shelter cats that need companionship and provides the kids a furry friend to read to.

Children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level may come into the shelter to read to the cats in our adoption room. Similar programs at other shelters across the country have seen the benefits the program has to offer. The program will help children improve their reading skills while also helping the shelter animals. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing.
