Well, we are still here and no one except Mrs. G seems to be going to work and school.  This has been very good because I did have to go to the V-E-T for my sore leg.  I had some magical photos taken, you can see my bones.  I had snapped a ligament in my knee, but the tricky thing was that when they listened to my heart they found out that I have a heart murmur.  That means I sometimes cough.  My family just thought it was a bad habit!  It is fine because I can take some tablets and it will make me better.  


So I then went for an operation to fix my knee, it was very sore and I had an amazing scar which I was very proud of.  They have tied my knee joint together and it felt better quite quickly.   I was not allowed any walks and I had to take quite a few tablets.  The grown-ups try to hide the tablets in cheese, sausage, meat and lots of other things, they think that I don't know what they are up to, but I do! 


My leg was just about to heal and all of a sudden I was taken back to the vet and they had to fix it again.  Now I have to wear a ridiculous collar to stop me licking my leg!  Check it out in the photos! 

25th March 2020


Well, it has been an interesting time, on the 20th of March my job as a school dog came to a bit of a standstill.  The children are not going to school due to a nasty disease called COVID-19 and  I am now at home with Mrs Gorry and the rest of my family.   It is lovely to see them but normally when I am not in school I am at home having some peace and quiet.  There is not much peace and quiet anymore, there are pieces of furniture moving around to make everyone an office.  


I have a bit of a sore leg and I heard Mrs G mention the V E T-word and I don't go there often but I don't think I like it there.  I am hoping it gets better.   I am going on a lot of walks as everyone of the humans in my house seems to want to take me for a walk.  

Tuesday 10th March

Today I spent most of the day in school and it was lovely to go into the hall and meet all the children at Collective Worship time!  They talked all about me and I had the chance to go round and say hello to all the children! 

Later on, I heard the Nursery children singing that they wanted a dog, so I popped in to hear their singing and to meet them!  


I have found a special spot under the desk to sleep and I managed to convince Mrs Morris to give me a considerable number of biscuits at lunchtime!  


I had a special chat to one of my school mates from Stingray class after lunch, they were a bit sad and this gave me the perfect opportunity to sneak up for a fuss.  What a treat coming to school is!   


Wednesday 26th February


Another great afternoon in school for me today!  I met a lady who came to talk to Mrs Gorry about the problem with dog poo around the village.  The school council have plans to be proactive and have sent out some letters to people in the community that might be able to help! It made me sad that a few owners are causing this problem for the children at school.  It is horrible to think of children getting dog dirt on their shoes on the way to school.  


Later I had a walk with two of the year 6 children and spent some time with the teachers at lunchtime.  Reverend Mike came into school this afternoon, so many things to learn and people to learn things from in school today.  


I found a cozy spot under the desk and even managed to squeeze in a little nap!

Today I had my first visit to school.  I was lucky enough to be given the chance to go in the Learning Pod and to read with some of the Starfish class!  It was a great treat to have stories read to me and all the children were really friendly when I went out to play! 

I am Ben the dog and I am really looking forward to spending time in school and getting to know the children and the teachers.
