Hi, I’m Ruby and I’m the school dog. I am a cockapoo. I am 2 years old now and I have been coming to school since I graduated from puppy school when was 12 weeks old.


Miss Noble looks after me at home and brings me to school each day. I am used to being in school now and I am always really excited when we arrive. When I first get to school, I go into the school office. I love seeing all the office staff in there, they look after me really well.


I enjoy coming to school because I meet new friends all the time and I get to listen to children read. The stories are great to listen to, especially if the main character is a dog. There is some research to suggest that when children read to dogs they grow in confidence so I hope that I can help children build their confidence.  I can also play outside and some children even take me for a walk. Sometimes when children are upset, the teachers in their class bring them to see me or take me to them. I like to think I make them feel better because I listen really carefully. 


I have been in the school productions. Once I had to dress up as a reindeer. I had to wear antlers but I kept pulling them off. I was very brave going on stage in front of everyone and I didn’t even bark. 


My favourite things to do are to chase a ball or a toy, eat treats and listen to stories.


Miss Noble says that I will spend more time in some classes now that I’m older. Maybe I’ll learn how to do my times tables, draw some pictures of dogs or even write a story about dogs, but for now I’ll leave that to you!
