Look at each picture, and watch as the cat makes his way down the roof to the dog. 

 The story behind this picture is this:
Every day - at the same time - she waits for him.  Sometimes she barks to call him.
He comes; they rub and greet each other and they go for a walk. They have done this for 5 years and, no, they don't belong to the same owners. The owners didn't know until
neighbors seeing them together so frequently commented to the cat's owner, who then followed the dog home which was a distance away – not in a house close or next door. How it started no one knows.
Wouldn't it be great to have friends like this, no words needed, they just intuitively recognize the value of each other in their lives and act accordingly?

(College students and incoming university freshmen have already registered and some classes may be full.  When you show up to register it is a good idea to have a few class choices with your list prioritized.   The Western Institute representatives will take your list of choices and see if there is room to register for the class(es) you desire.  They will notify you after registration, if there was room to enroll in the class(es) you wanted. You will pay MWSU after you've been officially registered before classes begin, not during Registration.)
