All About Me
My name is Monty and I am a miniature dachshund. My owner is Miss Ingram, but during the day I stay at school. At first I was shy but now I am getting to know lots of the staff, and getting tons of cuddles.
On this page I will post pictures of me and my adventures, so be sure to visit regularly to see what I've been up to...
Monday 14th January
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I had a very nice time, lounging around in my Christmas jumpers, playing with my new toy and resting on the chair. Well, Christmas is a time for relaxing!
I was very excited to come back to school and see all of you again. I wonder if we'll get any snow soon? I haven't seen snow yet - I'm not sure if I will like it as my tummy is very close to the ground, but I will definitely try it!
THURSDAY 20TH DECEMBER
Christmas is coming and I'm very excited! Do you like my new Christmas pudding jumper? I think I look very Christmassy and cosy.
Have you made your lists yet? I have - I've asked Santa for a new bone and a squeaky toy - I hope he thinks I've been good this year! I've only pooped in the office twice!
I'm looking forward to some tasty treats at Christmas dinner too - hopefully there will be some turkey left - yum!
Have a lovely Christmas and I'll see you all again in the New Year!
THURSDAY 13th SEPTEMBER
Hello everyone! I'm back for a new year at Atwood. I hope you all had a good summer and had lots of fun - I certainly did!
Over the holidays I went camping in the New Forest and had a lovely day at the seaside at Bexhill with some of my doggy friends - check out the picture of me on the beach!
I had a very exciting visit to London too. I went on the train to the Dachshund Cafe. Can you see me on the special sofa? I definitely needed a nap after all my summer fun!
I'm really looking forward to meeting lots of you this year - come and give me a stroke if you see me!
THURSDAY 12TH JULY
Hi everyone! Have you been enjoying this hot weather? I have - I've been spending lots of time sunning myself outside the staff room, and getting my tummy rubbed whenever I can - it's my favourite thing, apart from cheese, of course! Recently I went for a lovely walk on Reigate Hill - look how high up I was! Can you spot the other dog in the background?
I was a bit sad about England losing the football on Wednesday - I'm very good at chasing a ball and I think I could play for England one day. I bet I would score lots of goals!
This morning I have been playing in the office. My favourite game is to wait until someone opens the door and then sneak out! I run into the staff room and outside onto the grass. When I came back inside I had a delicious snack of watermelon and then a nice snooze after all my hard work.
Thursday 14th June
When you're a school dog, it's important to look your best. Miss Ingram bought me a lovely new collar with a special tag on it that says 'Monty'. See if you can spot it in the pictures. I think I look very smart now! I was supposed to be helping Miss Ingram with her work today in the staff room, but it was too comfy on her lap and I accidentally dozed off. I had another beautiful picture drawn for me by Kariss in Red Class - thank you, Kariss - I love all the different stamps you used!
WEDNESDAY 6TH JUNE
Today I had a very busy day. I did some loud barking in the morning, and managed to get a few minutes in the office, sniffing round and saying hello to people at the counter. Later on, Miss Ingram took me outside where I had a fun time eating grass and playing in the sunshine. I was tired after all that, and had a snooze on Miss Ingram's lap!
TUESDAY 5TH JUNE
I had a lovely half term and hope you did too! On Monday I was very pleased to be back and ran straight to Miss Colbron's room where my bed and toys are kept when I am at school. I think Miss Colbron missed me! Later that day I had a nice suprise - Izzy in Red Class had drawn a beautiful picture of me, herself and Miss Ingram. There's me - in the middle surrounded by hearts. Thank you, Izzy!
Friday 25th May
When I went out for my walk today I was so excited to bump into some children from Nursery on their way home. They were very pleased to see me and I got lots of strokes! Then I got another present - this time a lovely picture coloured in by Sophie in Ruby Class. Thank you, Sophie!
wEDNESDAY 23RD mAY
Today I had some lovely presents from the children - pictures of me and Miss Ingram from Poppy in 4G and a fantastic piece of writing from in Dhillan in Red Class - all about me too! I was very proud to inspire such amazing work - thank you, Poppy and Dhillan!
Monday 21st May
I had a lovely weekend in the sunshine - check me out enjoying a ride in Miss Ingram's bike basket! On Monday when I came into school I had a very nice surprise waiting for me - a new teddy from Mrs Burr. Thank you, Mrs Burr - I love it!
FRIDAY 18TH MAY
This morning I went for a walk in the sunshine with Miss Ingram. On the way back we bumped into some Year 5 girls who were very excited to meet me!
Thursday 17th May
Today I have been busy exploring Mrs Groves' and Miss Colbron's offices and getting cuddles from anyone who came in. I spotted some tasty paperwork in Miss Colbron's office but she wouldn't let me chew it! Instead I had some delicious puppy food in my bowl. In the afternoon I had a lovely walk with Mr Townsend out by the cycle pods, and helped to type a letter in the office.
