Monika's Doggie Rescue
I didn't want a dog -- I'd enjoyed having one when I was a kid, but getting one now would just be one more thing to do, and I knew that I would be the one who did all the walks, the feeding, and picked up all the poo.
But my seven year old had been begging for a dog for a long time, so we trekked up to Monika's.
Malaki was an easy dog to fall in love with, and we convinced Monika to let us adopt him.
He was nervous for the first few weeks: his tail stayed between his legs, and sometimes on the way to the park he would just sit down and refuse to go further -- we would go a different way. He was a completely silent dog for his first weeks with us.
Now Malaki is much more confident -- each morning he examines all the important places at the park, and barks when he wants to come in. He is friendly with all humans and nearly every dog. He loves a romp with his friends Simba and Topsy.
I could not have predicted how much I'd love this beast!
