Winnie’s First Day at #BigSkool


Dear Papa and Nanny

Well, I have arrived at #BigSkool and it looks really exciting! When Teddy and I pulled up there were lots of dogs barking and yapping to welcome us and to be honest it sounded like a great big pawty.

The very kind staff took us to our room and as we had travelled over together and were furiends, we have been put in a room together. We are being looked after by a lovely lady called Kim who rang Mil to let her know that we had arrived safely and were settling in OK. Kim told Mil that she thought I was adorable *blushes*

We were left to unpack our things, which didn’t take long, and then we had our first lesson – which was playtime BOL! The staff took Teddy and me out into a huge field and let us play and run around to let off steam after the stress of our journey. I found some strange old rags in my truck that we took to the field and played tug and chasey games with.

Appawrently things will take a serious turn tomorrow when I am allocated to a trainer and get checked out by the *whispers* v e t.

We are not allowed computers or phones or even owls at school so I am sending this letter by snail mail and don’t know when it will reach you but I hope it finds you both well and happy.

Please let all my Twitter pals know that I am having a fab time but I do miss them. I hope they are having lots of fun too.

Love and licks from your ever-loving Guide Dog in Training, Winnie xxxxx

    Dearest Poppet,
    Thank you so much for your snail mail. Your papa and I read it over a baconbeer. We miss you so very much but so happy that you are settling in so well. Did you find the bacon and sossidge chews I his in your trunk. I also packed some longjohns and thermal tops as I know it is very cold at the moment. I promise they are pretty with lace cuffs and collars.
    Love you darling and we are so very proud of you,
    Your Nanny (forever)

      Ha! I’m surprised Winnie didn’t say anything about the Granny Undies I packed on the top of her suitcase *laughing* They are NOT pretty, nor do they have lace anywhere on them! *more laughter* Or maybe she didn’t notice them in her haste to get at the bacon and sossidge chews? #ItsALabThing xx 😮

    Playtime (or as humans call it: recess) is the best subject! I’m glad you had some fun, are making friends and have a nice lady to look after you! Good luck on your journey! We miss you but know you are doing a very needed job!
