I'm an ancient dinosaur that's been out of the classroom for 17 years, but my babies are grown and I'm going back in the Fall - 2nd grade. I LOVE dogs and am also going to have a dog themed room. One great special event you might look into is having therapy dogs come to the classroom and have the children read to them - "Paws for reading" is a group of dog handlers in my area that visit classrooms - check it out. Also Paws for reading might be a great title for a reading nook in the classroom. A food bowl with bone shaped notes can be used for writing a note to the teacher's dog (set up a mail box - painted with paws or dalmation spots, etc) and then teacher's dog can respond to the students. Use best in show style ribbons for special rewards, etc.
