Mi Sun, 6 months, a Korean Sapsaree, has been visiting the children of Orange’s after school program the “School of the 21st Century” since she was 3 months old.
The children learned about the ancient breed, how it nearly became extinct during the Japanese Occupation and how a caring Korean Doctor brought the breed back from the eight dogs that survived.
The children watched Mi Sun grow from a little handful to a 40 lb medium sized dog, answering questions about what was different about her “this week” as she is like the horse of a different color, going from nearly totally black (except for her paws) as a puppy, to taking on a hint of gray on her head and back, to the multi-colored beauty that she is today.
Their time together was always special with the children gathering around her and taking her for walks, running after a ball, or sitting down for quiet time. She just wanted to please everyone.
Mi Sun visited each of the three elementary schools on a rotating basis on Thursday afternoons, but this week, she went to Turkey Hill and Peck Place Schools one last time before summer vacation.
