I went over to the Gorham Free Library to get a book that my local library didn't have.  In front of the Gorham library was this Free Book Exchange stand.  Wish more places had one of those.

Meet my new friend Tyler.  My Mom's friend had to put her dog to sleep do to cancer.  She decided that she would like another dog.  She looked all over, but could not find a small dog - until she found Tyler.

Tyler is a four year toy poodle.   Mom's friend called the Humane Society.  They told her they had a poodle coming in.  Friend went down, saw Tyler and filled out the application.  Others signed up for Tyler, but she was the first one.  She took Mom and another friend to see Tyler.  As Mom had me, her friend wanted to know what Mom thought.  Mom told her to take Tyler.  Mom's friend had owned several dogs, but never a poodle.  As Mom's friend was a senior citizen - she got Tyler FREE.

Tyler's previous owners had to go into a nursing home.  They kept Tyler inside and he only went out to the groomers.  He was on pee and poop pads.  So when he got home to Mom's friend's he didn't know about doing his business outside.  It was a whole new world to him.

He didn't know about other dogs, either.  When I first came to his new home to see him, he didn't know if I was a friend or not.  I soon let him know, I was his friend.  We played together and we became friends.  He is in shock to see other dogs, but he is getting use to them now. 

Being a poodle, he is smart.  He learned to go outside fast.  We don't think he had ever had toys before he came to his new home - but he does now and plays with them.  He still does not understand what dog cookies are, like I do. 

Mom's friend really loves Tyler.  She is so glad that she got him. 

First picture is of Tyler.  Second picture is of Tyler and myself playing at his house.

Hope you like, Tyler,

I had this school on before - a while back.  This is the school that Margaret taught in and will be teaching in when school returns.  Thought you would like to see it.

Sorry I am late getting this one.  I had the time set wrong for this to come.
