Mariah listens to Luke's heart

Two hearts beat for two dogs

Mariah Simpkins, 7 and Matthew Simpkins, 5 accompany their Grandparents to the vets in Treemont on their Columbus Day holiday. Both children have grown up with pets at their Grandparents homes in Pekin and Peoria as well as their Parents home. Near and dear to their hearts are their pets and those they meet everywhere they go. "Can we pet your dog?" is something you will hear them both say to the dog owners walking their dogs on the sidewalk or the beach. They are both being encouraged to have careers helping animals.
