Hank Hough and Preacher. Click HERE to read more.
The RMS staff and students had the opportunity to listen to Hank Hough this past Friday. He brought with him his very well behaved service dog Preacher. The theme of his talk to our students was to not be ordinary, and listen to your parents and teachers. Children don’t always want to listen to those groups, but teachers and parents love them and want what is best.
Here are some highlights of Hank’s talk:
- I tell my dog (child) no, because I love you enough to do so. It will keep you safe.
- I gave my dog a name, because you are unique in this world and I love you.
- When can my dog can get off the leash? When I can trust you.
- If you allow your dog to lay with dogs that have fleas, run into the street, and don’t obey you; then you will be ordinary.
- Aim to be above ordinary in everything you do. Your parents will always love you, but the rest of the world will not.
- I will turn you out into a world and hope you have learned from me, but you always can come back to me.
