That puppy school bus 😍
From shopping for school supplies to picking out that first-day outfit — starting a new school year is always exciting. And it’s even more fun when animals get involved.
Dogs and cats (and roosters) aren’t always happy when summer ends, because it means less time to hang out with their kid friends. But plenty of animals find a way to be part of the action, whether that means greeting their kids at the bus stop or sneaking to school in a backpack.
To kick off a new school year, check out these adorable moments when pets got a little too excited about school:
Savannah and her pet rooster Frog have a unique routine. Every morning, Frog walks Savannah to her bus stop and waits until she goes to school. As soon as he hears the bus rumbling down the road in the afternoon, he runs out to greet his favorite person. You can read more about Savannah and Frog’s friendship here.
