As we settle into the fall season, we shift away from summertime habits, changing them to best accommodate fall’s brisk weather and the diminishing hours of daylight. That sun-filled 6AM run of just weeks ago is now shrouded in darkness, as is the early evening walk home from the train for many commuters. Our furry friends, however, don’t shift their schedules to embrace the season. Dogs still need to go for walks according to routines no matter how dark, windy, or cold it may be. Vet runs, litter boxes, and water bowls all need time and attention, too, as do the PETicular personalities of felines and canines, alike.
Tales About Favorite Teacher Tails!
These pet-centric demands are small when compared to the tradeoff of having a treasured pet, often treated as a true member of the family. In our many discussions with teachers, we’ve discovered that there are a whole lot of teachers who also happen to be avid pet lovers. Many times, this “real teacher’s pet” even serves as a classroom mascot, giving teachers the chance to share colorful adventures, provide glimpses of their lives outside of the classroom, and model storytelling at its finest! At our family dinner table, we heard all about the daily mishaps of Haggerty, a mischievous new puppy, on a very regular basis. We also saw many videos of the academically-interested Mr. Cat (not wearing a hat!), and much more over the years as our kids brought home their Tales About Favorite Teacher Tails!
Teachers are often instinctive nurturers, which may help explain why so many teachers embrace pets of all sorts. As we gathered more and more Tales About Favorite Teacher Tails, we also discovered that teachers tend to pamper their pets! That’s exactly how The Real Teacher’s Pet!™ products came to be.
