I got to interview a kitten and a Yorkie.
Sherry Billings, the middle school principal, knew what she was doing when she told Granny there was a cat at the middle school (obviously, I would include the dog, too… the cat was just the selling point).
Ricky and Ollie were tons of fun to interview (their owner wasn’t bad, either).
I spoke at a career day for eighth graders right before this story published, and used it as an example of a feature. The kids knew about Ricky (when one boy asked, a girl turned to him and said, "Yeah…don’t you know Ricky?"), but Ollie is a better-kept secret. I almost started riots. I think he had quite a few new visitors after I finished up…
