The Gift of a Dog

One sunny day Geralyn brought a dog to Excel. She told Program Room 1 that the dog was the newest addition to their room. She presented us with a little beagle. We decided to name her Sassy. She was awfully noisy so we thought the name fit.
Sassy became our new best friend. We learned many things from her. Sassy helped us learn to share and how to clean up. We worked together as a team to help her learn new tricks, to go potty outside, exercises, and to love. Sassy was a big help in our room. She showed us how to care for our friends.
Sassy loved to go on outings with us. We even took her swimming with the Recreation Department. She loved to go for walks, which helped us to get our exercise in. We also played fetch with Sassy. That was her favorite game.
One day during the summer we were out playing soccer and Sassy joined in. She was GREAT! She loved to chase after the ball and help both teams. Sassy really taught us what teamwork was that day.
Sassy would often spend the night at St. Agnes where she would drink hot chocolate and kool-aid at 10:30 every day.
Program Room 1 went on an outing to the dog park one day and took Sassy along. We got to watch her run and play catch with all of her friends. It was exciting to see her have so much fun.
