On Monday and Tuesday Emmett went to elementary school. I didn’t get any pictures of him in the school, of course, but here he is on the way home, barely holding himself up!
He visited with kindergarten, first, and second grade classes, which totaled nearly 500 students. The goal of the program was to entice the children to come read with the dogs at the Saturday library program. The local humane association’s education director gave a phenomenal presentation to the kids – she does an incredible job getting them to pay attention, giggle a little, and walk away some really important messages (how to pet a dog appropriately, for example).
The most fun for me, though, is when the kids ask me the greatest questions ever. Every time we do an event like this, I come home with a list of never-before-heard questions that just crack me up!
From this event, here were some of my favorites:
“Is he a boy?”
“Does he like One Fish, Two Fish?”
“What’s his favorite color?”
From a little girl frantically waving her arm back and forth, “I just wanted to let you know that my name is Maggie, too.” Aww! 🙂
And, my all-time favorite question:
“Why does he look like that?”
I love answering questions like that, though sometimes I get a little stumped and have to stammer a bit before I can come up with something!
Tell me: What’s the best or funniest question you’ve ever gotten about your dog? Have you encountered one that stumped you?
