AAE: The Perfect Puppies

Milk Party

Last week (Sep 14, 2012) we managed to get a closer look on the 2 dogs on campus. Thanks to the vet in charge at AAE (Animal Aid Egypt) Dr Esraa Jad, we managed to give them the necessary injection shots and will follow up on them every couple of weeks. The good news is that they had 9 cute puppies [Masha’Allah], and we are currently looking for someone trusted to adopt them and find them a new home, away from the risky life on campus and the dangerous human beings! This is a video we took for the puppies after a big milk party ^^

If i didn’t have a cochlear implant, i wouldn’t even know the meaning of sound.

It all happened when i was born, when my parents was told that i failed my hearing screening at hospital.
