Grandma and I gave Daisy Lynn an B+ today for her first school visit!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and report card lovers…Yes, Daisy Lynn received a B+ today for her participation in our invitation to read the Lily Book and give a dog safety lesson.

We always start off these visits with explaining what a basset hound is all about.  The kids were really, really interested because I told them she could probably smell a Dorito in the lunch room;)


Then I ask the kids who has a dog. This is when I do my dog safety lesson and take a few questions.  The first question, which I thought was brilliant was, “Does she  howl?”


I read the Lily Book and the kids always seem to love it.  I donate a copy to the class room and the school Library.

After I read we practice what I have taught about dog safety.  Each child gets to come up and pet Daisy Lynn.

This little boy was somewhat shy, asking if Daisy Lynn was going to bite him.  Look at our faces.  I told him what a good question that was and it was good to be very, very careful with all dogs but Daisy Lynn was not going to bite him.


This little girl had on the cutest bell bottoms and adored Daisy Lynn.  I learned that she had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch!


Upon writing this blog and careful consideration I think I will change her grade to an A-.  Yep,  A-!

More trying to get more bookings later….Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB listening to Lily woof the Lily book to the bassethoundtown rainbow residents)

    Hannah wants to book you and Mayor Daisy Lynn to come to Hannah-Bear Elementary School to read the Lily book and talk about dog safety. Of course Hannah has read the Lilly book at least a hundred times on her own and knows plenty about dog safety … I think she just would like to invite all of Basset Hound Town into her classroom. 😉

    I’m so glad that Daisy Lynn did so good! Hey, you can’t score her too high. You have to give her room for improvement. I’m sure she was just excited and she’s still young. There’s plenty of time for improvement.

    How and where do you post for bookings? I know your website has the information, but do you post on school and library sites. This could help. Also, Slinky would be happy to give you and Mayor Daisy excellent references.

    I think this service is excellent for all children.

    Marsie and Nosey – the minus is for almost pulling Grandma off her chair! hehehe

    I couldn’t wait to hear how the reading went. What a wonderful thing this is for the children
    and ,of course, Daisy Lynn. I bet she loved all
    the attention. Great to see you back at school.
