Hurrah for Teacher's Pets!

 Today is the last day of school.
 Celebrations and Awards!
And here we have Drift, The Teacher's Pet.
I was reminded that  we also acknowledge Dog Celebrations.
Looks like Drift took many awards at his agility class this last week,
as he proudly takes his spot on stage.
Soon he will be I've preparing my home. 
I've been on a hunt to bring a new spark to his life.
He arrived on my doorstep this week.
I found him stuffed in a corner, whining, with pillows toppled on top of him at Grand Pappy's.
The owner thought he needed a new home.
 We looked at each other, smiled and made a swift deal.
I was the proud owner of a new dog and we promptly named him, Spark.
He sits quietly in the family room and
waits for me to come home.
Guards my front door step.
Never digs in the flower beds, but rather appreciates their  beauty.
Most recently, I've allowed him to sleep on my bed.
As you can see, he's added a real Spark to our family.
It's just the beginning of another journey, but I think I'm going to like it.
I'm sure the Teachers' Pet will be astonished.


  1. Now that's the kind of dog I can handle at my house LOL! I'm excited to see his adventures....

  2. That's may kind of dog as this stage of my life. Mine has been dubbed 'the library dog' as that's mostly where he hangs out.

    Spark looks quite at home on the front porch...and will do double duty as a guard dog, I'm sure.

  3. I sure do hope Spark doesn't mess with Teachers Pet too much or you could be the one who is looking for less spark in your home.
    I wish we could have stuffed Otis and left him on the loading dock for the remainder of time. He was the best! Maybe though. . .I'll go to Grand Pappy's and see if they have a fake Otis to sit on the dock.

    Loved this post!

  4. Wow... I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed, proud, or shocked! All I know is that if Spark is paving the way for how Drift's time at Motel Bartel will be this summer, he's already counting down the days!


  5. Very cute! Spark is my kind of dog, barking, no shedding, no digging, no chasing, no picking up after him with a plastic bag........perfect!

  6. If I were ever to have a pet-that might be one I could handle!

  7. He appears to be the perfect pet. And, I do believe he would be easily accepted at our home, too.

    He is so neat, quiet and well behaved.

  8. I don't know, Marg - I think I might miss that wet-dog smell. What do you think?

  9. Maybe Spark will teach Drift to sit still.

    I'm sure Drift will have a wonderful time visiting!

  10. Although I too had a dog I still miss after ..what?.. over 20 years?- your "Spark" is the only kind of dog I'd want now.
    However, our son brings his dog to the office most days and that gives me all the doggy time I need. I can pet him, enjoy his chin on my knee and his big soulful eyes; feed him tidbits and then send him home. A little like Grandkids! (smile)
