I thought I had 2 weeks :(

But now I only have 4 days...
We just found this email from our Area Coordinator this afternoon -
"Puppy Raisers for Toby, Rocky, Spike, Duchess & Cassie, I regret to inform you that your dog has been called back EARLIER then the IFT date set- their new date is for next week, Monday April 5th - Wednesday April 7th. If you are unable to return your dog in those dates please email me directly"


Oh wait, forgot this part...
"April Fools Toby!"
*(Please note: This email was NOT sent/written by my area coordinator - it was written by me for a joke - none of it is true).
Oh, jee thanks mom -tell me AFTER I write the post :(
Happy April Fools everybody!

OH TOBY! You mean ol' puppy! I was all kinds of sad. And then I was all kinds of happy! I'm glad it was only an April Fool's jokie.

In those last two pictures, is your Raiser teaching you how to do laundry?

Oh, Toby, that was quite an April Fool. I've just met you, but I'm already going to miss you lots. When you're launched on your career can you still do April Fools or do you have to be very serious all the time?
