So, where do I start? What a wonderful time I am having!! I’ve been meaning to write and tell you everything I’ve been doing for ages but I keep getting distracted by fun things like breakfast club, walking with each class, hiding in Mrs Cotton’s cupboard, playing in my new fenced area (where I love to hide things in the bushes so you humans can’t get them!!) and of course eating which is one of my favourite ever things to do!
I know I was a little scared when I first started at Beechwood in September but now because you’ve all been really kind and nice to me, I feel right at home! To start with I was very confused by all of the corridors and rooms in school plus I just couldn’t understand why everyone was so excited to see me; I’m just a puppy! Mrs Cotton and Mrs Hamilton spent a long time helping me get used to things and I made sure I gave them extra licks to say thanks. They took me into every class so I could be nosey and see every small human. Most of them wanted to see me but a couple were a little bit scared so they didn’t. That’s ok with me though because I know what it’s like to be scared of new things. Maybe one day they come and see me and see that I’m just a big ball of fluff really.
I thought I should share some of my favourite things that I did last half term and one of them was the science day. I really liked it when everyone was dressed up because some of the small humans looked really funny! Mrs Cotton tried to make me look like them and put on a lab coat but I wasn’t having any of that and got it off straight away! I’m a dog not a scientist! I’ve heard a rumour about a Winston calendar that Mrs Marsh, Mrs Cotton and Mrs Hamilton have been plotting about but I think I probably won’t wear any of the costumes they choose for that either…unless there is a heavy reward of dog treats involved. I’m not too fussy; sweet potato, carrot, yoghurt, peanut butter, broccoli stalk or liver cake will do.
Another thing I really loved last half term was going into assembly to show off how good I was at puppy class! I’ve graduated now so I’m in the adult class with some of the big dogs but I think I’m just as good as them and if I do mess up, it’s normally Mrs Cotton’s fault because she wasn’t listening to the instruction. I like my new class because it’s not all about teaching me to behave – why do adults want us to behave all the time?! Where’s the fun in that?! I get to also do some agility which is jumping over the hurdles, zooming through the tunnel and climbing up and over the A frame. I can’t believe I get to do all this and then at the end, I get paid in treats for it! It’s so good being a dog!
Anyway, I’ve been very upset to hear that this week the small humans have been decorating cookies and not a single one has brought me one – something to do with, ‘Too much sugar!’ I heard Mrs Cotton saying. She’s such a spoil sport. I did however get to wear my Pudsey ears and my Superman costume when I visited Year 3 on Friday to celebrate the having won the lower school attendance last week. I wonder who will get it next?
As much as I would like to, I can’t sit here on my bed typing on and on, a dog’s got to get on with what a dog’s got to get on with – mainly eating, playing and sleeping upside down with my belly hanging out – so I’ll be off! Until next time humans…. Winston x
