From Nola’s Diary: Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Hi. I’m Nola. I’m 7. I am from New Orleans. I survived Hurricane Katrina. I was adopted. I have three legs. I am a sweet girl. It was my first time at the Chevy Chase Library, although my adopted family has a long history connected to libraries. The library is a very accepting place. None of the PAL  dogs seemed alarmed that I have three legs, and some of the kids didn’t even notice!

Books and stories are the focus at the library. So my spokeswoman told the story about me and how I was found living by a highway. Two things have always been true about me; I’ve always been sweet, and I’ve always been tough. And, here I am.

Many families came to pet me, read to me, and take me for walks. It was all very exciting. I remember Toy Trouble, a Martha Speaks book, by Karen Barss and Wag by Patrick McDonnell.

When it was time to go, I asked Miss Julie if I could take the elevator, instead of the stairs. It was a busy night, and I was tired, and sometimes I get nervous on slippery stairs. Miss Julie led the way, and I was very grateful. I gave her a smile and a wag, and she smiled back and gave me a cuddle.

Until the next story time!
Nola
