Herbie our School Dog

Herbie is our adorable school dog here at RMGS.  Some may remember when he came to our school in 2019, when he was so small you could pick him up in just one hand.  He is a therapy dog, meant to play with and calm students, which he does extremely well.

Here is a piece written by a current year 9 student.

I asked if I could run Herbie around the field at lunchtimes because of my love of running and exercise, and because Herbie is so energetic like me! Mrs Mayes (Head of Year 7) agreed and was pleased that we could play with him and enjoy walking and running with him.

Herbie loved all the attention! He lets everyone make a fuss of him and is a very approachable dog.


 You can tell he is a friendly dog just by the way he lets everyone stroke and pet him.

At lunchtime, we can’t wait to see him! I run him around the field, and he loves it because he is so energetic, and you can tell he loves to run! He gets worn out, and he has a drink and slumps down on the floor and enjoys being made a fuss of by everyone. 

Herbie is such a well-trained dog, and is extremely obedient and loves his treats and loves affection! Look out for him. He will definitely love to see everyone again.
