Snoops Recounts the Tale of Riana and Rex

Published on: Thursday, December 5, 2019

Hello friends,

I hope you’ve all had a good week. I can’t begin to tell you how exciting things are here at King’s Hall at the moment. There are so many treats in store for the week ahead but I’ll write about them in my final diary entry for the term.

However, before I am overcome with all things Christmassy, I would like to share a wonderful, heart-warming story with you about one of our pupils, Riana, and her old dog, Rex. Rex was bought by Riana’s family when she was just two years old and the two were inseparable. Every day Rex followed Riana around the house and stayed at her side while she played with her toys.

A short time later, Riana’s family moved from Romania to the UK. It just so happened that around the same time a friendly neighbour was looking to purchase a dog, so Rex was rehomed. Even though 9 years have passed since Riana and Rex separated, she never forgot about her special canine friend and would often mention him to her parents.

In the recent October Half Term, while visiting Romania, Riana’s family decided to pay a visit to their old village. Hard as it was not to build their hopes up, it was their dearest wish to find Rex alive and well. At the beginning I said that this was a heart warming tale, so you have probably guessed that they did indeed find him, in good health and as sweet natured as they remembered from all those years ago. Riana and Rex played in the garden for over half an hour and much to everyone’s delight, the close bond between the two still existed.

The thought of Riana and Rex being reunited again gives my fur the warm fuzzies and I have told Riana that I would love to meet Rex one day.

Bye for now.

Your best friend,
Snoops x
