Dog follows kids to school but gets sent to the headteacher's office

It's no secret that dogs are intelligent animals, but they don't normally go to school. However, one sneaky pup called Sandy clearly had other ideas.

One of the wonderful things about dogs is that they love being around us and keeping us company.

But that can also make it difficult for them when school and work take us away from them during the day. So Sandy decided to take matters into his own paws.

Protective pup

Ever since Sandy, a Labradoodle, joined his family as a puppy, he's been very protective of them, especially the children. Sandy always wants to keep tabs on everyone and make sure they are all safe. 

However, this means that when it's time for the children to go to school, Sandy isn't very happy. Every day he tries to follow the children to school, sneaking out the door when no one is looking. Fortunately, he's always caught in time and sent straight back home.

But one particular day, Sandy managed to sneak out of the house and make it to school without anyone noticing.

Sneaky Sandy

While everyone at the school thought it was hilarious, Sandy was soon sent to the headteacher's office to wait for his owner, Karen Manthey, to collect him. Unfortunately, while he was waiting, Sandy managed to get himself tangled up in the office blinds!

As the school couldn't get hold of Karen, one of the children was allowed to walk him home. Karen couldn't believe it when the pair appeared on the doorstep. She hadn't even realised Sandy was missing!

Despite Sandy being in big trouble, he didn't feel guilty. He rather enjoyed his little adventure and was rather pleased with himself. Karen however, was rather embarrassed about all the trouble Sandy had caused and went to the school to apologise and offer to pay for new blinds. But no one minded, they just asked her to email them a photo of Sandy.

Karen says that Sandy is usually a well-behaved dog, but when it comes to making sure the kids are ok, he'll do anything, even if it means breaking the rules!
