It is back to school for most mini humans today. Mom finds it depressing as she enjoys learning but she did not like going to school at all. It brings back memories of how she dreaded going back to school. We enjoy learning fun stuff at our nose work and tracking classes as they are more like fun hobby classes than school. Today, it is off on that yellow bus for most kids. On the bright side, they often leave unattended backpacks at the bus stop which means prime stealing opportunity for scent hounds out for a walk! Mini humans are easy targets!
I do enjoy helping some of my stuffie friends with their learning through reading. Recently I stopped by the library to read to several of my groups. Nope, I’m not a therapy dog and Mom and I have no intentions of going down that path, but I do enjoy helping out stuffies. I really have to keep an eye on Curious George as he is always into something and causing trouble!
For my large reading group, Clifford the Dog always volunteers to help me out. Trust me, with the wise guy old owl, and curious George in the group, I need help! Clifford has written many good books about life and about things that pertain to animals. Everyone always enjoys a good Clifford book!
This is totally crazy, but I also have a small wabbit group that I read to. I know they are stuffies, so they are not in any danger hanging out with me. For some reason, they love me. I think it might be that we all have long floppy ears?
One of my dog students has a crush on me and brought me a stuffed rose. The guy just wants to snuggle up with me all the time but I am not interested in the least! I’m way to busy for that kind of nonsense!
Hope everyone survives the first day of school. We are all grateful we don’t have to go, especially Mom! Heavens, she didn’t even like going to obedience class with Bailie, but it had to be done. School isn’t for everyone!
