Everybody remembers their first dog. Mine was Ricky, he was a terrier of some sorts and he was very intelligent.
This is Ricky, I don’t have many photos of him and here he is with my dad and my baby sister. He was about two when this was taken.
As I said, Ricky was such an intelligent dog. I remember him coming to tell us once that our other dog, Sally, had just been run over. Luckily she was fine, but he barked and barked until we followed him and he led us to a group of people.
I’ve shared a story in The Magic of Stories book telling of the day he came to school with me. He just decided to do it. It would have been in the late sixties and no way would a dog been allowed into schools today like that. He played in the playground with all the children and in the afternoon, the teacher let him come into the classroom. I hope you enjoy the story, and I promise you it is all true.
Please tell me about your dogs.
