Niagara School Visit
Oliver and I really enjoyed our recent visit to Mrs. Bonnie Bailey's 2nd grade class at Niagara Elementary School. The children presented us with over $102 they had collected (Quarters for Cats and Dimes for Dogs).
We stayed and visited with them for around an hour.
We read a book about caring for your dog and discussed all the things pets need when they come to live at our homes.
Of course, the one they really wanted to see was Oliver.
They were very gentle and patient with him and he met with all of the children, allowing them to pet him and ask questions about him. He got a little tired near the end, but I was very proud of him. He did his job as Spokes Dog like a champ.
I loved meeting with the children and hearing what they had to say - always the best entertainment!! I hope we can do this again, teach children about pet care and animal safety, let children (and adults) know about the work we do at the Humane Society, and make new friends along the way.
