“I love knitting and I love dogs, so it’s a great combination of both! It takes me three days to knit a blanket and a day to knit a dog coat. It keeps me busy and I often like to knit while watching TV. I am happy to help in one way or another the four-legged residents of the center, “said the 89-year-old lady.

Apparently, Green has been doing the right thing for 3 years now. She gives blankets and coats three times a year and each time, with the help of her family, brings over a dozen hand-made puppy products.
