Simon will be going to an elementary school for a presentation on sled dogs and huskies and will get to be loved on by a ton of kids.
I am really excited they asked me to come to talk about Simon and sledding along with others. I just hope Simon is good he loves kids but he can be super vocal when excited. I will let you know how it goes wish us luck!

Sounds like time to tell everyone involved - kids, teachers and dog - to behave themselves. That really does sound like it oculd be a lot of fun!!

That's awesome news Elise, congrats to you and Simon.

I totally get your concern for the talking. My rule is so long as all 4 are on the floor, talk away. It's sometimes very embarrassing, but I guess it's just part of the fun of having a Husky.

Have fun with your presentation!

Well I have found a trick to get Simon to stay in one place. If I get him up in a chair he will stay as long as I ask him too. He will get bored and start to cry but he will stay put. It's the weirdest thing but I think I am going to bring a camping chair to have him chill in while I talk.

Jeff it was about Siberian Huskies, sled dogs, and dog sledding. Which is why I had the X back on him. Some of the kids had read a book called "Stone Fox" which is about dog sledding and my friend is one of there reading teachers and knows I am working on training Simon to do dog sledding and asked if I could come in and talk to the kids.

I am glad you all like the pictures. It was a lot of fun talking to the kids and letting them meet Simon. It was his second time in an elementary school the last time was when he was 5 months old and we visited my mom's class for some positive kid exposure.

At this school they had an elevator we got to ride and Simon was really good at that but when we stepped out and he could see through the railing down to the first floor that kind of worried him. I also went over with the kids how to meet and dog and that not all dogs like kids or were as tolerant as Simon so you always have to ask the owner if it's okay.
