Hey,
I'm a teacher in Australia and some of my students have laptops. I know that a few of them have found sites like this, but usually school admins are pretty good at blocking any sites that have 'chat' to prevent students chatting away instead of listening in class!

I think you should be careful that your laptop does not become a distraction. Also many schools have monitoring software that lets the teachers watch what the students are doing on their screens. In my school I can close down access to the internet, email and any other program that students don't need to be using with the click of a button. Make sure that playing showdog doesn't affect your learning.

oh wow, happy :)

i shall try not let it distract me lol.... but actually the novelty of them is starting to wear off now... and after all the excitement about them, i actually would rather work in a book. But maybe that's because that's what i'm used to...

lol, now that's funny!

I know that it has taken me a while to get used to using a computer to keep together my notes, and I've been using laptops in my schooling since grade 2. I'm now 27!

It is difficult to get used to working on them, and, call me old fashioned, but there is something nice about handwriting. Something many kids are losing the ability to do, now that they get to type everything!

Glad you are being careful to no be distracted when you are supposed to be working.
