4 students phoned me to tell me, and another asked if we could go and build a snowman. I don't think she realised (never having seen snow before) that 5 flakes does not a snowman make. I have promised her that if the snow comes back and stays on the ground, i will help her make a snowman.
So...i have a dog. Originally, it was my ex-friend (more about that later...) Vivian's dog. Now, she is mine. She is a little white chihuaha + Something mix. I think it's Chihuaha x Pug. She's quite adorable and i have to admit, i have been trying not to like her too much because she was Vivian's. Now, however, she is mine.
So the next plan: Stay in CQ next year.I've been offered a job earning more money in the Translation University. If i can aim to save as much as possible, i'll then try to get a job in Hong Kong for at least a semester and get Lucky quarantined there for 4-6 months. I'll also seek out a good vet who will spay her. To get to HK she needs to have rabies and some other immunisations, which is not a problem as i can get them done in CQ. After that, she needs to get a pet passport...and then it's off to the UK to meet Finlay! With the pet passport from HK, she doesn't need to be quarantines in the UK. If i take her home directly from here, she'll need to be quarantined in the UK for 6 months. If i quarantine her in HK then i can see her more often, and make sure that she gets good treatment, and that she gets spayed. I don't trust Mainland Chinese vets to do it. i don't like them. Like Vivian, they have no thought for the animal and don't believe it is a sentient being.
The only thing is...will it ruin my image too much if i'm seen in public with a Chihuaha? She's a celebrity on campus! Not only is she small and cute, but i keep telling the students that she speaks 3 languages - Chinese, English and Dog. But in the UK?!
