MILWAUKEE -- A couple weeks ago, two little girls in the stands made a poster that said, "Yelich, hit a home run and my dad buys me a puppy."
UPDATE: They are going to name him Yeli. 🐶 pic.twitter.com/J95rP1Rh5m— Milwaukee Brewers (@Brewers) April 15, 2019
Tonight, 6-year-old Lola and 4-year-old Libby Labodda got their puppy from Christian Yelich.
The mini goldendoodle puppy was hand-delivered by Yelich. The puppy was also dressed for the occasion.
6-year-old Lola was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes two and a half years ago and needs a Diabetes Response Dog to help monitor her blood sugar levels. Those dogs can cost more than $10,000.
