We got an email from Diane and Yakira this week. Their flights home went pretty good. Yakira needed a little reassurance during take off. But that’s not bad for her first time flying. Here is some of what she said.
Both Yakira and my other animals are getting along well. (Actually she and the cats have a mutual agreement to ignore each other but it’s not necessarily a bad plan.)
We have been taking two trips into the community daily to expose her to all the new sights and guide work issues. She is a remarkably quick learner and we will shortly be enjoying ourselves more than adapting.
Besides the two cats (Sleepy and Aurora), Diane has her retired guide, Bettyjo (also a black lab but much larger than Yakira). It is so much fun to get a quick update from Yakira!
