Au Revoir, Winnie

Our Winnie will soon be leaving us for Guide Dog School.

Please sign her card by leaving a comment here.

Thank you.

RSVP invitation to her #SkoolPawty

Our dear furiend Janis @JanisFelidae has introduced us to a German tradition, the “Schultüete” – literally “Schoolbag” though it´s not a “bag”. A “Schultüete” is a large cornet, prettily decorated and filled with sweets and little presents, given to children in Germany & Austria on their first day of school. We are delighted and honoured that Janis has made one for Winnie, and proudly show it off here. Thank you Janis!

    My darling Poppet,
    You have grown-up way too fast, but I’d say that if you even a whole 3 years old! Just remember I’ll always be just an iPaw away and I promise I’ll keep looking after your Papa & even try to wean him off “chook pooh” as long as he allows me my weekly ration of #TheNip. I know you are going to be successful at school and make us so proud of you. I love you Winnie so very much and I’m going to miss you. Dreading our last *squeezy hugs*
    Your Nanny (aka Jessie)

    Sweet Winnie, we have enjoyed watching you grow, and know that heading off to school is what you were born to do. Praying already as time is passing too fast….but there’s something I already know: whether you are placed as a Guide dog, or if you have a different destiny, you’ve already touched and changed lots of lives. Mine included. You’ve already made your mom and dad proud, and there’s no pup with more auntys than you! Wishing you the best! ❤

    Dear Winnie, your Mama was such a champion of everything guide-dog related and I learnt so much from her and from the community of guide dogs on Twitter. School will be hard and you’ll be very tired but it will be worth it. You will be so special to someone. Lots of love xx
