Heidi is our School Dog.
Everyday Heidi visits classrooms and helps the children with their work.
Pupils are chosen to take Heidi for puppy walks, which usually involve ball fetching and stick chewing!
Sometimes, if a child is upset, Heidi will help to make them feel better.
In the afternoons, Heidi visits most classes with Mrs Hill to make sure everyone is working hard!
At the end of the day, Heidi goes home with Mrs Hill.
When Lewis badly sprained his finger, Heidi kept him company while we waited for Mum to collect him and go for a checkup.
Heidi even shared her favourite toy!
When it was time to go, Heidi escorted Lewis out to the entrance hall, just to make sure he was collected ok!
Heidi saw snow for the first time and she loved it!!
This is Heidi's very first Christmas and she would like to say a big 'Thank You Woof' for all of the lovely cards and presents she has received!
Heidi has been on her very first holiday. She loved the woodlands and beaches of Dumfries and ended every day stretched out in front of the fire.
It's a Dog's Life!
Heidi joined our school on Monday 23rd January aged just 8 weeks old.
When she first arrived she had great fun exploring the office and meeting the staff. Later on, Mrs Hill took her into assembly in her special carrier. The children sat so quietly when she was introduced and Heidi was very excited to meet them, Mrs Hill had to hold on tight to stop her from joining in the Chinese New Year celebrations.
After all that excitement, Heidi snuggled down for a 2 hour nap! The dinner ladies didn't know she was fast asleep in the office when they came into work.
After some lunch, Miss Ashby took Heidi for some fresh air and a play over at the car park; when Heidi is bigger we will be able to go for longer walks. Miss Davies came in to play tug of war with the sausages and by the time Mrs Hill had made a cup of tea, it was time for another nap!
It's hard work being a puppy!
