Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!

School Visit

I want to say for the record that going to school was as much fun as I predicted it would be. Wait! No! It was TEN times more fun! When Mom and I arrived, everybody was working in groups to invent their own original math games. We were impressed. These kids sure do love to learn!

The first place I discovered was the shelf with the lunchboxes. Mom said, “We are NOT staying for lunch.” and “Don’t even think about it.”


Then I saw a poster that looked a lot like me. but I noticed it said the word, “Listen Up” which clearly has nothing to do with my life.

The whole time I was there, I was kissed and held and cuddled and touched and hugged and carried and petted like crazy.

The kids showed Mom and me the picture books they wrote and illustrated. Now Mom is worried because they are definitely steep competition for her.

They even gave Mom and me a thank you card with lots of words inside and cupcake stickers on it. Perfect.

After all that fun and love, I was exhausted, so I rested in the car and thenΒ took a quick street nap when we got home.

Mom has another school visit on Thursday. I wonder what I should wear…

  3. Great job, Cupcake! That looks like so much fun and I love the pictures. Thank you for sharing a lovely experience with us.

  4. Thanks for sharing, Cupcake! I loved hearing about your school visit! What lucky students!

  5. Cupcake! What fun you and your Mom had at school! You look adorable all snuggled up with those kids…..and you get to go back? Might I suggest that beautiful sun dress you wore to the camping trip???? Oh – and another thing – please be careful about those street naps…..the pavement probably feels nice and warm BUT it’s kinda dangerous out in that street – don’t make me worry about you!!!!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  6. Sounds like a fabulous school visit. Great age to be with. Love all of the photos. Yes, I’m realizing amazed at the the books kids are writing — could be big competition soon!

  7. Oh boy!! You’ve found your calling! And I’ll tell you a secret … if you go often enough teachers and kids start sharing their lunch with you and keeping treats in their closets and pockets just for you! JOY!!!

  8. That’s so wonderful! You made those kids very happy πŸ™‚

  9. Golly, Cupcake, those kids were the luckiest kids ever to get to meet you! I’m glad you had fun at school πŸ™‚ Favorite line from this post: β€œListen Up” which clearly has nothing to do with my life. πŸ™‚

    • You know it, S. Listen Up is like a curse word for dogs. Even ask Jemma and Scout. I’m sure they don’t like to hear you cursing like that!

      Love and licks,

  10. Gosh, I wish you and your mom could come to our elementary school! That would be so much fun!

  11. Cupcake – you are always looking so fabulous! Looks like you got to make a lot of new great friends at the school too πŸ™‚

  12. Oh, Cupcake, how lucky you were! Well deserved pampering time πŸ™‚

  13. Looks like you had a great time, but I don’t get why you couldn’t explore the pack lunches more!!!

  14. Sofie does street naps too. You are so sweet and we have a yummy for you

  15. That looks like a great trip.You obviously stole the show. But I think you should’ve been allowed to stay for lunch!

  16. Looks like you had a great day. And you looked fabulous – way better than the Listen Up dog in the poster! I’m sure today will be another excellent adventure. I can’t wait to have lunch with mom tomorrow so I can hear all about it. Don’t forget to post shots of today’s outfit. πŸ˜‰ (p.s. I won’t show Jeff.)

    • Bad news, G. The school Mom is visiting today is no dogs allowed. Mom said the word, “Dream on.” Jeff will be happy to know that I’ll be spending the day naked and alone…. well for a couple of hours, anyway. Don’t worry, you’ll hear all about everything tomorrow.

      Love and licks,

    Hey Cupcake,

    Sometimes I don’t think humans realize how much effort it takes to deal with all that attention! Tee Hee

    So happy you had such a fab time!

    Sure whatever you wear you’ll look pawsome!

    Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

  18. I think you should wear next time something with a HUGE pocket! The only question is how could you distract attention from you for a minute!
    Your street nap is extremely cute! I’d like to pet you – oh no, you are just dog-tired from having been petted by so many little hands!

  19. You look exhausted in the last photo! But it looks like you had a lot of fun and I bet the children really enjoyed meeting you.

  20. Can you visit our school next? I want an autograph! πŸ˜€

  21. What a treat- for you and the children Cupcake. I wonder if they were as tired as you were afterwards? πŸ™‚

  22. Fabulous Cupcake xxx
