Tuesday 10/07/90 – Our new puppy

Hughan has a plastic horse that he sits on and it has wheels (like a motorbike).

Today Hughan had decided the horse was hungry. He got the dogs bowl and was pretending to feed the horse.

In the afternoon I went and collected a puppy that has been brought to Botswana for us by ‘Pets Travel’ (from Johannesburg). He is a Jack Russell and we have called him Thomas.

Tina, our dog, was so pleased with the idea, she has company at last.

Hughan was also very excited and sat watching them both.

Jamie had been at a friend’s house in the afternoon so he was very excited to see time as well.

(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
