With just little over a week until the big event, I’ve been checking the weather forecast on a regular basis to see if we’re going to have to put in an emergency order for Peak to Fong umbrellas. So far the signs are promising, but I will never again utter those fateful words “It never rains in November (in Hong Kong)” because it obviously does.
As promised, one of the litter of young puppies that was picked up by AFCD in Stanley was taken to his new home today. I’d been asked if I could get all five of them over to Ap Lei Chau so a choice could be made and I agreed, forgetting quite how heavy puppies in a crate can be. I think there must be a mysterious doubling of weight for every puppy added to a group, because dragging/carrying the litter from the sampan pier to the Homing Centre took some effort, and I consider myself to be pretty strong. I also had terrier cross Lewis tagging along, also for an adoption interview, and I was very grateful that he is an angel when walking on a leash.
With the puppy duly selected, it was Lewis’s turn. The family who came to meet him had adopted a very similar dog from me years ago, in the very early days and long before they had children and HKDR had any sort of centre other than Lamma. I had suggested Lewis because I knew that Wallace, their current dog, had been just like Lewis when he was young, and sure enough he (Lewis) was perfect. So that’s one more happy family, happy dog and happy me.
For our Chinese speakers (readers) and Weibo users (the Chinese version of Facebook), we have a request that is very easy but is also very valuable. All you have to do is re-tweet the Disney-Peak to Fong message and for every tweet HKDR will get $1, up to a total of $100,000 from Disney:
