We have an unintended theme today, it seems: Videos of dogs in classrooms. Unlike Rudolph (the star of the previous video), Rosie has no physical challenges other than the fact that she’s a senior citizen. The 11-year-old West Highland terrier putters around the private English school where her person is headmistress, and makes children relaxed and happy.

I wanted the school to feel more like a home, and Id always wanted a Westie,” the headmistress, who adopted Rosie 18 months ago, tells the Telegraph. “The children love her, and they give her a hug if theyre upset…She’s the most docile animal you’ve seen in your life.”

So of course, inspectors stepped in. Because Rosie has committed the crime of being a dog, they waved the flag that Rosie could possibly be a danger to the children. They wanted to evict her. Watch the video to see how it turned out for Rosie.
