Buddy the School DogThis is the inspirational story of Buddy, a poodle who became an important part of a school family.   But even more, it's the story of what really matters in life, and how, as Mahatma Gandhi said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

You'll love Buddy and the way he ministers to the children of Lakeside Elementary School. Child after child, he meets needs and comforts and encourages them. And because of Buddy, children learn the important life skills of how to live in a community and to respect the differences in others.

When Buddy is hurt, the children and families come forward to show their love and support. It's a feel-good moment that will bring a tear to your eye.

Buddy is on a new mission!  His new motto is "Be a BUDDY, not a BULLY!"  School visits continue to emphasize character education, taking care of the school family, being respectful of each other, accepting those with differences, and being responsible for your actions.  We are now joining the fight against bullies.  Chapter 3 of Prince Buddy of Lakeside is the perfect introduction to this topic.  After reading the chapter, the students are challenged with the question, "What would you do if this happened to you?"  Students talk together to come up with the best solution to bullies at their school.
Buddy continues to . . . . "Save the Day!"
