Friday, June 21 was "Bring Your Dog to Work Day"! Friday, June 21 was also MY last day of work for the summer (I teach) and with all of the last day activities a school has, I asked my principal if Murray could come to work a day or two before June 21. I teach 5th grade and my class had heard tons and tons about my Murray this year. They heard stories, saw pictures and probably felt like he was some kind of celebrity! My kids couldn't wait to meet him! So, on Wednesday, June 19, Murray became a 5th grader for a day. Other than walking in the noisy hallways during dismissal (it's a bit chaotic), he LOVED his experience. He loved the kids, the attention, and the open space when the kids went home. The kids had a half day, but Murray worked all day with me. He got to roam and explore a bit once the kiddos were gone. He was very well behaved, other than a couple barks at our custodian BOL! All in all, a great day! He was POOPED at bedtime. In the end our school kind of had a dog WEEK! Our 2nd grade teacher brought in her two new havanese puppies on Monday, our math teacher brought in her bulldog pup on Tuesday, Murray went in on Wednesday and our kindergarten teacher brought in her schnauzer on Thursday. I hope this becomes an annual tradition! It was lots of fun!
