|Michelin and his family|
One of the Tai Po puppies was adopted today, and it's a funny story because I'd been corresponding with his now-adopter for a while without actually knowing who Michelin was. I knew it wasn't a name I'd given, and assumed it was an older AFCD puppy from Sheung Shui that had gone straight to Tai Po. However after Michelin had been picked up by his family, others were asking where he came from and nobody was really sure. It was Kathy, who keeps records of all the dogs, who said she was pretty sure he was one of a group dropped off at Ap Lei Chau a couple of weeks ago, and she was right, he was the only puppy that arrived at the same time as terrier Tina, who managed to escape and caused all sorts of problems in the following days (she's back and happily settled now). Michelin, who at that point didn't have a name, went straight to Tai Po and now he's left to start a new life.

|Icy looks very much like Michelin|
I know where Icy came from because I remember her very clearly from AFCD Pokfulam. She was one of the most recent Stanley Barracks intake, and from the start she was incredibly sweet and friendly, even while I dealt with an infected wound on her face. Icy was at Acorn today having her second vaccination, and I think she recognised me and wanted to say hello before settling down on the back seat again. For a family with children, one year-old Icy would be perfect, because she just wants to love and be loved.
