Parents always say they have “no favorite” child. Teachers aren’t supposed to have “favorite students” but I do.
Yes, I have a FAVORite student.
This student sits patiently, is attentive, remains quiet and still unless called upon, and has a great energy about him.
The thing that sets him apart, though? His soft fur.
Yes, I said FUR.
I’m a sucker for a puppy.
He’s part of Freedom Paws Assistance Dogs and being trained by Lindsay Mcllwain*. She’s in one of my 2367 classes and since none of us are allergic to dogs (or phobic) he gets to come to class on Mondays and Wednesdays.
This is a first 🙂
He’s a wee bit bigger now, but still all legs and wags!
Without further ado… cue the cuteness:
