When I checked my messages this morning, I was surprised to see a whole heap of really nice comments on my last post congratulating us on our foster/adoption of Chris and asking us how we are getting on. Thanks to everyone for your kind words - they are really nice to hear! Chris is doing very well - settling in nicely and getting used to his new surroundings. As I type away here, he has just come in to see me for a pat and to see what all of the clicking is about. He is still a little nervous to be around us but his tail wags a lot more often now - which is always a good sign!
One special message I received was from the kids in Room 10 at Coley Street School in Foxton and their teacher, Miss Gorrie (love it!). They have been reading my blog as part of a 'Writing for Purpose' project they are doing at school and sent me a lovely message to say that they have really enjoyed it and to ask me a few questions about Mila and Chris.
When I started writing my blog, I thought it would be a little bit like a diary...just a place where I could write some funny and (maybe) interesting stories about my dog - and people could read those stories if they wanted to. I never, ever imagined that it would be read at school by a class full of people - and that they would enjoy it. That is just awesome!!
So, thanks to Room 10 (and Kylie) for brightening up my Tuesday - I hope you keep reading (and enjoying) Mila's adventures! Feel free to drop me an email anytime.
And the hounds would also like to express their appreciation:
P.S. Just after I took this photo, Mila tried to eat her sign!! She slobbered all over it and managed to screw it up. Lucky I got this one in time!
