Also the office is a good place to connect with students who come in with recess owies, tummy- aches or tears. Sometimes TLCC, tender loving canine care, is just what's needed.
On this day particular day, a student was seated across the room from us. This student was obviously not a happy camper, and not one teensy bit happy for office time. We had recently been in this young person's classroom and knew the reason for the needed office visit.
Normally, Chester is quick to greet the incoming.
But this time, Chester looked directly at grumbling student, then gave out a loud and very noticeable "sigh" and settled down at my feet, not moving a muscle to venture across the room.
I think .....sometimes...pet therapy means staying put.
The wisdom of Chester.
