  1. Dear Mrs. Hembree,

    I would love to read with Rover! What a great experience! Dogs and reading are two of my favorite things. Putting the two of them together is wonderful!

    I especially love the pawtograph. It’s a great way for students to be able to remember their experience. More amazing work from you, as always!

  2. Dear Mrs Hembree and the Bulldog readers,

    I love the fact you got to read to Jett and Reece. I am pretty sure they would have enjoyed hearing you read to them both.

    I wish I was able to read to a pet dog when I was at school.

    Wow how lucky you are guys your all starting your summer holidays.
    Hope you all have a great holiday. We are still at school and will be for another two weeks and them we have two weeks off. Our big summer holidays start in the middle of December so we have a far while to go.

    Mrs Hembree will you still be doing your blog over the summer holidays?

    Well enjoy everyone and take care.
    From your pal,

    • Dear AA,
      Thank you for the comment about our Rover doggies! Jett and Reese are very popular at our school. Jett has a brother,Silas and he is a rock star at his school too!
      Yes, I will be keeping the blog going over the summer. There are some stories that I didn’t get a chance to cover during the year, that I will have time for during our time off!
      Say Hi! to BB for me!

  3. Dear Mrs Hembree,
    Awesome post.

    I have read to a dog before and her name was Pat she is very cute and small.

    It is an awesome time read when you want too.

    This Winter I am reading Dear Dumb Diary and The wall and the Wing.

    Have you read these books before?

    Jett and Reese look very cute :).

    I love reading to dogs.
