A Scholastic pup roundup
By Lia on June 22nd, 2012
Before I leave my apartment for work each morning, I run through a mental checklist to make sure I’m not forgetting anything: Keys? Check. Wallet? Check. Phone? Check. Dog? Ch– wait, dog? Yup, that’s right. Today is officially Take Your Dog to Work Day (but please note: many offices don’t allow pets, so be sure to check on your company’s policy beforehand!)
In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, we thought it’d be fun to “paws” and take a moment to honor the Dogs of Scholastic.
1. Clifford (Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell) - Clifford the Big Red Dog is, without a doubt, the “top dog” here at Scholastic. Lucky for us, we get to hang out with Clifford on a daily basis (see photo to the right.)
2. LaRue (LaRue across America: Postcards from the Vacation by Mark Teague) - It’s hard not to love LaRue’s wonderful romp of a road trip across America. What a sophisticated dog to have seen so many of the country’s cities!
3. Bailey (Bailey by Harry Bliss) - Bailey is a dog who surprises and charms his fellow human classmates with his irrepressible antics. Dare we say that he’s the “teacher’s pet”?
4. Fergus (Good Boy, Fergus! by David Shannon) – Sure, Fergus may not come when you call, but we can’t help but love him as he gets into (innocent) mischief.
5. Homer (Homer by Shelley Rotner) - Dogs are usually great at playing fetch, but a dog that can also play baseball? Homer steals the bases — and our hearts — in this book.
The list could go on and on. How about you? Be sure to share your favorite dog(s) from literature in the comments below!
