NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Madeleine Hsu was a shy and quiet 6-year-old — but she would light up around dogs.

Karen Dryer, who lived on the same street as the Hsu family, would see Madeleine’s mom waiting for her at the bus stop at 3:15 every afternoon. Dryer would wait too, for her son Logan, who is in kindergarten. Dryer usually brought the family’s golden retriever with her.

“She would come off the bus and her face would light up when she saw the dog,” Dryer said.

Her mom would give her a big squeeze, and Madeleine would hug her little sister. “She was just an absolute doll,” Dryer said. “She seemed very shy, but she was just so sweet.”

In addition to Madeleine, the child victims of the massacre were:
