This is Foley (I know he doesn't look like he's the brightest of dogs, but he's smart enough to have manipulated us into spoiling him rotten).
Dogs eat the same thing every day, and they relish it. They often have the same routine every day, and they don't whine about it. If their walk is shorter than usual, they don't complain.
My friend (also a teacher) mentioned one unpleasant thing that was on our teaching plate. However, she quickly followed up with, "But I'm so grateful we have jobs..."
Prance because you do have a job. Prance because you are lucky enough to have a job that is a mission...You make a difference in people's lives. Prance because, even though there is more paperwork and programs heaped onto our plates every year, it is still the best profession in the world...
