Wool E. Gram
Wool E. Bull delivered Valentines wishes despite the winter weather on the actual day. Bulls fan Lisa Carpenter send a Wool E. Gram to her Mom and got a wonderful response.
Here’s what Lisa Carpenter shared her Mom’s experience:
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the awesome surprise you provided to my Mother Friday afternoon. My family is thrilled.
Wool E. did a great job hiding once the dog started barking. Wool E. caught my Mom totally by surprise and I saw on video how happy she was by how fast she grabbed and hugged him and started crying. It was tears of happiness. She called and said, ‘How in the world did you get him to come to our house?’
My Mom and Dad said Wool E was so nice and gracious and gave her the biggest Morale boost outside of finding out she was in remission for her Cancer. Having Wool E Bull show up at her home in a TUX specifically for her was the best Birthday, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day gift she be provided.
My Mom stated that was the most original gift she has ever received.
