Meli has been hard at work answering letters! Read her responses to letters from a group of second graders from Northview Primary School in Findlay, OH.
Q: I am in second grade, my name is Ashlee. I am from Findlay, Ohio. I am wondering how the surgery went. I am hoping you still don't hurt. I am hoping you could be my friend. I read Meli Goes to Surgery Rehab and they were really good. I am hoping for more Meli books. ~Ashlee
A: Hi Ashlee! It was so great to hear from you! My surgery went well I'm all better now! The vet took really good care of me! Swimming helped me get nice and strong, plus it's a lot of fun! Keep reading! Woof! ~Meli
