Marshall the Miracle Dog

Wow–at Robinson we cram lots of fabulous things into short periods of time.  I already told you about how our first 1/2 day was Read With Your Roadruner, and our Olweus Kick-Off Day.  Well…it started with a great visit from Marshall the Miracle Dog!

Cindy, Marshall’s mom, came to read the book she wrote about his story:

We learned about how Marshall’s story included people (and dogs) who mistreated him–he even lost a leg because of how neglected he was–but he overcame and learned to love again because of special people like Cindy in his life who showed him love.   We talked about how we can do the same thing!  Cindy took questions from the audience, and then everybody got to give Marshall a quick pet on the way out.  They were moving so fast, though, that it was hard to catch….

I think one of the best parts of Marshall’s story is how far it has spread.  They even made a movie about his life!  To learn more about Marshall, check out his website here.

What an inspiring story that none of us will soon forget!
