TAILS of Natcher and Nat

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! It is a gorgeous day here at our doghouse in Shepherdsville. The sun is shining, there is a breeze blowing, the birds are chirping, and I just saw a dandelion poking up from the ground. It makes me want to put on my fishing hat and my flips flops. Problem is - I can only find three of my flip flops. Where is that fourth one? Oh well...

How can I possibly tell you about the PAWS-atively terrific day and evening we had at Natcher Elementary last Thursday? Natcher Elementary is in Bowling Green, KY. It is a gorgeous school with the best staff! In fact, the librarian, Ms. Alecia Marcum was named Kentucky Library Media Specialist of the Year! After spending the day with Ms. Marcum, we know why! Ms. Marcum and all the staff and students pulled out the red carpet for our visit. We felt like movie stars! We were showered with food, gifts, hand made bandanas for Chloe and me, hugs, kisses, you get the picture. Even better than that, the students were so thoughtul and respectful - and fun too!

You know how in Walt Disney movies two people see each other across a crowded room and fall in love? While I was at Natcher, I looked across the library and found my love. Our eyes met and I felt my heart go pitter patter. Sitting in the library was the sweetest, prettiest, and softest teddy bear ever. I had to hold it, so Mom handed it to me. I loved it so much that I couldn't put it down. I named the bear Nat - short for Natcher. I was so sad thinking I was going to have leave Nat, but Ms. Marcum said Nat could come and live with me! Isn't that great! Nat loves her new home. She is well taken care of. She sleeps with me and I carry her around everywhere. It's harder to carry her since one of her ears is well, nevermind about the ear. We are two peas in a pod! Nat and I are like cookies and milk, spaghetti and meatballs, rawhide and jerky treats!

A great big puppy dog kiss to Ms. Marcum for Nat and thanks to everyone who made our visit to Natcher so spectacular! We hope to see you again soon!

I have posted a few photos up but will hopefully get more up on the photo page in the weeks to come. In fact, updating my photo page is on my Scooby Doo To Do List. My list gets longer every day! Speaking of, I guess I should go. We will be leaving for Maysville, KY in a few hours for a school tomorrow. We always love our trip to Maysville! Mom told us that after school we could go and visit the flood wall and the murals. I am hoping there are are wiener dogs on the murals. I will let you know!

Have a great day! Enjoy the weather! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
