Mr. Dogwood Goes to Southside

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! It is Wednesday morning and Chloe and I have been up for hours. The weatherman said we might have light snow, so Chloe and I couldn't wait to wake up and build a snowman. Mom and Dad kept telling us that even if is snowed, there wouldn't be enough to build a snowman, but we kept our hopes up. Unfortunately, it didn't snow at all. Oh well, we will wait until next time! Since we were up early, we ate our breakfast and went for a long morning walk.

Yesterday, we spent the day at Southside Elementary in Shelbyville. It was definitely a day we will never forget. When the Woody Bus pulled into the parking lot, four students came out to greet us with gifts. They were our "Welcoming Committee." They had a basket with lots of cool treats - including squeak toys and rawhide candy canes. Those candy canes are dee-lish! Since Mom isn't all that fond of eating rawhide candy canes, she received a beautiful Christmas ornament. In fact, it felt like Christmas yesterday.

Everyone at Southside made us feel like family. A great big thanks to Ms. Slaughter, Ms. Caldwell, and all the staff and students for making our day so special!

We are packing up the bus once again, this time headed in the other direction. Tomorrow we will be at Greenville. This will be our very first time in Greenville! I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Have a great day! Stay warm, don't eat too many candy canes, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
