Previously, I wrote about how I found myself in an animal shelter for the very first time and why I chose to adopt a dog named Pongo which I have now renamed Sonnig.
If you've missed out on the first part and would like to read about it, feel free to read it here: Part 1-Adopting Pongo

Due to the fact I've already quit my job in Penang, I moved back home to live with my parents and be reunited with my pets in a little peaceful town I grew up in called Taiping, situated in a state called Perak. It's only an hour and a half drive to get from Taiping to the island.

Island of Penang, Malaysia. Where Sonnig is waiting for me...
On the day I am to to bring Sonnig home, which was on the 15th of February 2012, I asked my mum to go along with me on the trip.

The process of adopting a shelter dog was really simple and I enjoyed every step of it. First was to pick out the dog of course, and second is to see if you have a connection with it by spending time getting to know and interacting with it. I've already explained that in my previous post, but I did leave out something important about Sonnig.
