After being in remission for two years, her cancer has returned with a vengeance. When the Charlie’s Dream Foundation wants to make one of her dreams come true, Melanie decides she wants nothing more than to set Kona free.

This Galloping Guernsey takes on the special challenge of competing against several sanctuary animals—a field of zebras and stallions. She ignores the strangeness of being a “racing cow,” as this Valentine’s Day story emphasizes using the talents that we possess, and accepting the valentines from appreciating admirers. The valentines of the Sanctuary are the gratitude and love they show Apple for her bravery and tenacity—not for winning.
