The kiddos wanted to share their appreciation and thanks. Their favorite parts were seeing both dogs and seeing them "do fun things for Cheetos." They loved when they turned around and wished they could be turning around with them in real life. Another second grader was so excited to see dogs because he doesn't "see too many dogs these days." They were wondering why they didn't see your face, but a friend chimed in and said, "Because she wasn't the mystery guest!" They all loved the clues and loved having dogs on our Zoom. ~Teacher
