Me and the Dogs

See, the bottom line is, I'm a Cat Person. Always have been, always will be. I WANT a cat. But, I'm not at home a lot, these days, so it's a good decision to wait.

But here, well... we have three guard dogs. Mocha, Java and Chai (the girl). I'm not sure how clear anything about here is to you, but while we CURRENTLY live in the Office/Guest House, the goal is to have everyone living out at the Property. This is where the Children currently live with the House Parents. I know I have also spoken of Kambi Teso. Kambi Teso is a slum area where we have the Feeding Program, which is a separate deal.

Homes are being built for the Children at the Property - hopefully sooner rather than later. There were traditional mud homes already there, which is where they are currently living, and they will get new homes, but that is not the point of today's post.

Today's post is about the dogs. They are for our safety. Like the Security Guards - WELFARE OFFICERS, as we call them, as they are looking out for the Welfare of our children. (We have one at the Office/Guest House, too, but again, that's a separate post)

ANYhow, today it was thought it would be a good idea to take Mocha to the Property to let him start getting acquainted with the children and the dog that's already there. It's a 30 minute drive from us to them. We all went out in the "truck" - oh no, Mocha doesn't ride in the BED of the truck. That would freak him out. He rides like this...

Or maybe he rides more like this...

Well ONE of us is happy with this idea...

Awww, look... he likes me...

No, really, that makes me SO happy...
