Dear students of H.I.S.,
My name is Lucia and I am a student in Grade 8. I have been trying to find new ways to keep myself occupied in these lonely times. I have gardened, painted, cooked, and organised but that only distracted me for a few weeks. Back in January, I got my first rescue foster dog to take care of.
After taking care of my first foster dog, we had to wait with traveling plans but now, since trips got canceled and we had plenty of time on our hands, I am taking care of another dog. Two weeks ago I got my second foster dog named Pax! He was very scared since he was rescued from Romania and was on the road to Germany for many hours.
All of the dogs have different stories of were they were rescued and Pax was found on the street with his siblings. After a few days of hiding, eating, and watching our own dog, Pax was following me everywhere and on the third day didn’t even need a leash. We found him a happy home.
I hope to see many other foster dogs in the future as a hobby and I am receiving a new dog this weekend named Bella. Stay happy, healthy, and occupied!
Lucia, Grade 8
