When children cause problems at school, their parents are typically called and asked to come to pick up their children. However, in the case of mother Karen Manthey, it was her Labradoodle, Sandy, who was being “detained” in the principal’s office! It turned out that her overprotective dog had followed his human siblings to the school because he wanted to “keep an eye” on the younger ones. This was all because he was concerned about their safety.
The antics of the stalker dog had both the teaching staff and the children at the school in fits of laughter as they watched them. After the Manthey children had finally become aware of Sandy’s presence, they hurriedly brought him to the office of the school administrator. However, because Karen could not be reached by phone, the staff ultimately consented to Sandy’s sister, Lainey, taking him home!
When Karen got back to her house, she was stunned to find that her next-door neighbor, who was also at school, had sent her a text message inquiring with her about Sandy. The book also included a hilarious illustration that depicted Sandy getting himself partially caught up in the blinds in the principal’s office as he was still trying to “watch out” for his brothers.
Not only did the personnel laugh off the entire situation in a sporty manner, but they also declined Karen’s offer to replace the blinds that were wrecked by her obtuse dog. Instead, they merely requested that she send an email containing the infamous photograph that immortalized Sandy’s funny misadventure!
Karen thinks that Sandy is a very excellent boy since he is highly obedient and follows the rules. However, his concerned heart takes precedence over his expertise if it comes to the kids and their purported “safety.” The children of Manthey are a very fortunate family to have such a devoted and caring animal friend by their side at all times.
