Deefur; our School Dog

We are pleased to announce that from September 2019 we will have a new member of the Marnel Infant School team. Deefur, our chocolate labrador, will be joining us. This page has the introductory letter, some FAQs and the current Risk Assessment (the Risk Assessment will be updated on an ongoing basis).

Thank you to my niece Allegra for helping me with Deefur's training...she can now 'lie down'. Thank you to Claudia (my youngest niece) for taking the video. Well done Deefur you are a very clever girl :-)

Deefur visits school for the first time...

New harness! Deefur is not yet able to go out for walks until she has had her second lot of injections. Her new harness is a bit big still but it was the smallest one they had!!

Deefur is learning to carry her own waterbottle!

I have got lots of new toys to play with and explore. Thank you to everyone who bought them for me!

As I am still a puppy I sleep almost 16 hours a day...when I am really sleepy I like to lie on Miss Cox's arms, legs and feet!

I am still very tiny. I weigh 4.95 Kg and I am only a little bit taller that an small coke bottle!

Deefur Comes Home!

 

Miss Cox collected Deefur from Essex where she had been living since she had been born. She lived with her Mummy, 2 sisters and 5 brothers. Miss Cox met with a puppy trainer before she picked Deefur up and the trainer told her that she would need to have Deefur on her lap on the way home to keep her safe and calm. Deefur did really well on her journey home especially as there was a traffic jam on the M25 (which is a very busy road). Both Deefur and Miss Cox were very pleased to be at home together smiley
