Louie the Newf Goes to School

A few weeks ago Louie and I participated in our Public School District's Annual Reading Day. We read our favorite book, entitled "Newf" of course, to two different classes of second graders.

Our first class was a bit smaller than usual because several of the students were going on a field trip to meet Bill Cosby. The teacher told me they were very sad to miss out on visiting with Louie and that in their classroom Louie is more of a celebrity than Mr. Cosby. Thankfully the children did get to pet Louie briefly before they left.

At the second school we went to these older children were our guides. They were so helpful to me and super sweet to Louie. We were very impressed by them.

We asked if the special needs class would like a visit and they said yes. Louie got to visit his buddy "J" from the previous school year. Louie and I arrived to the class first. When J came in he ran right up to Louie and without hesitation threw his arms around him in a big hug.

By the end of the day we ended up seeing six different classes of students. We were only scheduled to see two, but as Louie walked down the halls we had several teachers begging for him to visit their class too. It was a long day for both of us, but super fun. It's always a great day when you can spread a little Newfie love around.
