On Monday the 21st of May, we experienced an incursion from the people at Messenger Dogs and learnt about how dogs were used in war. Please find some recounts from the Preps and Grade 1/2s and some photos of our morning!
The Messenger Dogs by Prep CD
We met the messenger dogs, their names were Trick, Nell and Bullet.
They helped the soldiers in WW1.
Sixty thousand animals have been to war.
The dogs took messages to the soldiers because there was no power or phones.
One dog stayed with the injured soldier and the other dog went to look for the lost dog, Bullet.
Trick found Bullet and carried him back to get help because Bullet had barbed wire wrapped around his leg.

My class and the other 1/2s and Preps went to see the Messenger Dogs in the gym for an incursion today. First we went to the gym. Then we watched the show. Next we asked questions. Finally we got to pat the puppets and get a sticker. My favourite dog was Bullet. My favourite part was when the bomb came up.

On Monday, the 21st of May, the Preps and the 1/2s went to see a show called Messenger Dogs. First, we went to the gym and got introduced to Trick, Bullet and Nell. Next, we did training. For example, when there was a gas attack, you go down and put your gas mask on. Last, we got to pat the dogs and we got a sticker! My favourite part was when the bombs showed up.

Messenger Dogs – Ksenia 1/2A
First they introduced themselves. Then they did a puppet show. Next they told us how they did the bombs and this is how they did it. So they put flour and rice bubbles and cereal in a pipe. Then this is the funny part, one of the messenger dogs said yum I want to eat some cereal and then one of the other dogs said put your mouth there. Then it popped and he spat it out.
