Sophie enjoys a ride on Xolo the Giants’ dog
● A RUNCORN youngster was left ‘over the moon’ after being picked to ride on the back of the dog Xolo at The Giants event in Liverpool.
Sophie Flaherty, five, had the experience to never forget during the event over the weekend amid huge crowds.
Her delighted mum Sian Hammond said Sophie rode on Xolo’s back for about five minutes along Stanley Street after a member of The Giants team approached and asked her if she would like to take part.
She said it would make a ‘fabulous’ memory for them to enjoy for years to come.
Sian said: “Sophie was over the moon and so excited that she was one of the lucky ones to be picked out from all the children around us.
“It was so unexpected, such a surprise!
“It’s definitely a memory that’ll be enjoyed for many years.
“To see Xolo’s features up close was absolutely amazing.”
