Hickory has been very ‘spicy’ this month; he will have his surgery in January, so that will hopefully settle him down a bit! Hickory continues to be beloved in the Kindergarten class, as seen in this month’s photos. He gets comfortable and lays near the Kindergarteners while they are busy and moving around him, sometimes even falling on him or laying on him for some regulation and calming. They are long, full days of Kindergarten, but Hickory is a champ all day. The photo of Hickory at the top of the stairs is what Hickory does every day once the kids and staff all leave for the day and Hickory is ready to go home too! Very patient and sweet.
